On behalf of everybody here at Sacred Heart Catholic Voluntary Academy, I would like to welcome you. Our school is a happy and successful one where our children are given the opportunity to develop in all aspects of their personalities. We are a dedicated, hard-working and committed staff who care deeply for the children entrusted to our care.

As a Catholic school, Christian values and the traditions of the Catholic faith are central to our ethos. Prayer and worship form an integral part of each child’s experience in our school

It is our aim to promote a three way learning experience between home, school and the child in order to develop reflective learners equipped to take their place as global citizens in a changing world. We believe in a holistic approach, placing as much emphasis on developing creative and physical learning as on academic achievement. As educationalists, we are aware of the changing learning landscape and adopt an enquiry based approach to learning so that children become critical thinkers and independent learners prepared for the challenges of the future.

Visitors to our school often comment on its warm and friendly atmosphere. This naturally makes me feel extremely proud. I hope that by browsing through our website, you too will experience some of the very special qualities of our school. Perhaps after having done so, you may like to arrange a visit. We would be delighted to arrange a mutually convenient time for you to come and visit us.

As a Catholic school, we have a duty to provide education for the children of Catholic families, however, when places allow, we gladly welcome children from all families who are in sympathy with our Christian ethos.

We are justly proud of our happy school and friendly reputation and feel privileged to be able to guide and shape the children of our future. I look forward to welcoming you to Sacred Heart Catholic Voluntary Academy.

Ms L Atkins, Head Teacher
