About Our School

Our Vision

At Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School we develop confident, well-rounded children with character and aspiration.  We have a strong Catholic ethos that shapes moral values using Christ as the example. We do this in a caring, friendly environment where teachers inspire curiosity and achievement so that every child realises their full potential.

Headteacher's Welcome

Dear Parents/Carers

On behalf of the staff, governors and children, I would like to welcome you to Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School website. This site is designed to be a source of information for our school community and a celebration of our children's many achievements. We also hope that if you are not familiar with our school, that this website will provide you with an insight into our ethos, values and commitment to high standards of teaching and learning.

From Reception through to Year 6, the children are the reason we work so hard, to ensure that we provide a caring, supportive environment in which everyone is encouraged to achieve and make progress in all areas of their school life and to live out our mission – “to grow in wisdom and in grace”.

We aim to provide a rich, educational and social environment, which nurtures and challenges each child, enabling individuals to flourish and to achieve his or her highest possible potential. A child's time at the school will be an important part of their lifelong learning journey and with this in mind; we aim to make their educational experience at Sacred Heart a stimulating and enjoyable one. 

Whether through the numerous sporting events in which we participate, the music lessons we provide, our school trips where children explore, investigate and learn new skills or in the classroom where our talented teaching staff inspire, engage and encourage the children to have enquiring minds;  We offer our children an environment where they can achieve academically, creatively, spiritually and socially and   I am very confident that every Sacred Heart pupil is well-rounded, proud to talk about their school and will cherish the memories of their time with us.

At Sacred Heart we recognise that the partnership between home and school is one of the most important elements in ensuring that a child's education is a successful, rewarding and happy experience. For this reason, we value the support and commitment which parents offer both to the school as a whole and to their own child's education.

We are very proud of our links with the parish of Sacred Heart. We work in partnership with Fr Paul Fitzpatrick and the Diocese of Birmingham to bring Christ’s message and our faith into all aspects of school life.

I hope that you find our website informative and enjoy your visit. You are warmly invited to make an appointment and visit us at school to see for yourself our learning community in action! 

Thank you for visiting.
