‘Love one another as I have loved you’
At Sacred Heart School we are called to change the world by:
Acting justly and with love; to speak for the voiceless and defend the defenceless.
Being joyful and courageous witnesses of the Gospel, carrying to the world a ray of God’s light.
Becoming caretakers of our world through knowing that Creation is not a good to be exploited but a gift to be looked after.
Loving, Learning, Achieving, Believing
At Sacred Heart Catholic school we aim to provide a welcoming and caring environment in which every child is able to be happy, confident and supported in discovering their individual talents and strengths. We believe that all teaching in our school must reflect our Catholic faith, enabling children to develop and deepen their relationship with God. It should not only be taught but lived, this being reflected in the way that all staff treat the children and in the way the children behave towards one another.
Love one another as I have loved you
In order to achieve our vision we will:
Love and care for our children in a happy, safe environment, valuing each child as an individual and precious child of God. We expect our children to respect others and enjoy mutual respect created out of love for one another and to be secure in the knowledge that they are loved by God.
Inspire a love of learning by providing an exciting, challenging and creative curriculum, accessible to each individual which will prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they will encounter in the future.
Encourage all members of the school community to ‘be the best you can be’. We want our children to have a positive, determined attitude to learning so that each one of them achieves to the best of their ability.
Encourage our children to believe in themselves, to know that they are a valued member of our community, each with individual talents and strengths that they can use to grow into confident, compassionate and successful members of our society.
