Thursday 14th January 2021


Dear Parents,

As you are very well aware, we had to make the last resort decision to close the school, to all, last week for a ‘circuit break’ period of time to attempt to prevent the further spread of the Covid Virus within our school community.

Unfortunately, since the decision was made to close the school we have now had 7 confirmed positive test results among our staff.

Therefore, it is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that for the safety of all staff and pupils we are extending the closure period of the school for a further week. The school will review this situation including all health and safety conditions and staffing levels on 26th January and we advise parents to monitor their texts, emails and the website for further announcements. 

This difficult decision has been made by the Senior Leadership Team, Chair of Governors and Chair of the Board of Directors.

We know that you may find this concerning but we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England.

All pupils will remain at home during this enforced period accessing the remote learning provided by their teachers. We would like to thank those families who have been engaging in this learning for your efforts.

Please keep all our staff in your thoughts and prayers, likewise the staff are praying for the safety of all our families.


Yours sincerely

 G M O’Hara

Executive Principal

Executive Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School. I hope that you find the website both useful and informative.

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Our website will allow you to make an informed choice to explore what Sacred Heart School has to offer.

As a parent of three children myself, I know that all parents want their children to feel safe, secure and happy at school. They also want their children to achieve. Here at Sacred Heart all children are encouraged, supported and challenged to become the best they can be.

Although academic success is important, we are a caring community which aims to promote a respect and understanding of all individuals through a sharing of our Catholic Faith and the love of Christ. All children feel a sense of worth, knowing that they are valued and loved by God in their uniqueness.

 We seek to create a learning environment which enables our children to succeed to their best ability and which recognises and values their various talents.
We acknowledge the importance of our role in support for the family, the parish and the wider community.

In summary, our school is much more than just an educational establishment. It is a place which offers children the stability and enrichment that they need to become the unique individuals God created them to be. I believe we provide an ethos where children learn effectively and develop into well rounded and responsible Catholic citizens.

Please take time to explore and enjoy our website and if you require any further details, please contact us.
