Plan for Classes

Organisation of Classes

At Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School we aim to provide a quality education for all the children in our care. Including pre-school, there are currently nine classes at Sacred Heart and we try to keep the classes as small as the budget will allow. Our Nursery and Reception classes have their own play area to enable them to settle into the school environment quickly.
