Welcome from the Headteacher
Dear parent, carer, pupil or visitor,
Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School.
Sacred Heart is a one form entry Catholic Primary School in the heart of Liverpool City Centre. We have just over 210 pupils from Nursery ( 3 year olds) to Year 6. We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.
We are a Catholic School with close links to our parish church and parish community. Father FitzGerald, our Parish Priest, visits school on a weekly basis to chat to the children on the playground and lead an act of collective worship in a class. The children love his visits. We follow the Catholic Religious Education syllabus ‘Come and See’ and our Foundation Governors are also very active in our parish and school. Christ is very much at the centre of everything that we do at Sacred Heart
We are an ethnically diverse school with pupils originating from across the globe and we are proud to be ‘the world in one school.’ Our children are extremely welcoming to new children and will help them settle in very quickly and the children, staff and parents will quickly make you and your family feel part of our school community. Our children’s safety is our number one priority. It is of paramount importance that all pupils learn in a caring, happy, safe and secure environment. Ofsted (Novemeber 2014) rated our ‘behaviour and safety’ as outstanding.
We have specialist teachers for music, Spanish and PE. This enables children to flourish in all areas. Children from Year 2 upwards have a weekly Spanish lesson. It is amazing to see children as young as 7 writing in Spanish.
With the support of Malcolm Pein’s chess charity ‘Chess in Schools and communities’ all children from Year 2 receive a weekly chess lesson in curriculum time. This helps develop children’s mathematical thinking, problem-solving and concentration. We are the best chess school in Liverpool, we take part in lots of competitions and have a number of children who represent Merseyside at county level.
We are extremely lucky at Sacred Heart to have an extremely dedicated and enthusiastic staff. From our premises staff who ensure the school is in immaculate condition; to our 5 star rated kitchen; welcoming and helpful office staff; to our excellent teaching staff who want only the very best for our pupils. We offer a wide range of intervention programmes to support your child to ensure that they fulfil their potential. Part of our mission statement states ‘with the love of God, our dreams and ambitions come true.’ This is our aim.
There is still so much to say, so please feel free to contact our school directly with any queries you may have. I hope you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for.
Thank you for visiting!
