Do I book a Covid test or not?

With all the confusion over symptoms displayed by children, the DfE have produced the following, short video clip to help parents and carers decide which is the best course of action to take. Please take a few minutes to watch the clip. In addition, there is a further, useful guidance document which has been shared by the Catholic Schools Partnership, which is also on the front page of the school…

Coronavirus Related Absence

Knowing exactly what to do, should someone in your household develop Covid symptoms, can feel quite complicated, especially with so much guidance out there to be read. We therefore hope that parents and carers will find this simple guide useful in deciding what to do. Another useful guide is the government’s Stay at Home Guidance, the link to which is below. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-households-with-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection

Further DfE Guidance for Parents

Schools have now received further information from the DfE, to pass on to parents and carers. Once again, we hope it goes some way to reassuring all parents and carers that it is safe for the children to return to school on Wednesday. This document is available in several different languages, which you will find in the Newsletter section of the website.

The links to the information can be found below: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/what-parents-and-carers-need-to-know-about-early-years-providers-schools-and-colleges-during-the-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak?utm_source=25%20August%202020%20C19&utm_medium=Daily%20Email%20C19&utm_campaign=DfE%20C19

Holy Week

As we are now into Holy Week, we hope you will take a little time to reflect with your children, on the important events in Jesus’ life which took place at this time. Here is an art activity you might like to do with your children. There is also a child-friendly copy of today’s Gospel reading with an accompanying activity. These would be lovely to do together, as a family.

A message to the wonderful children of Sacred Heart School, from Mrs Kelly

Hi Everyone! What have you been up to during this first week at home? I hope all you lovely children have been good and that there aren’t too many frazzled parents/carers out there just yet?! I have been looking at some of the posts on your class blogs and it is great to see the work you have been doing-well done! I am working from home too, as I must…

KS1 Nativity

This afternoon, we were privileged to witness the true meaning of Christmas as our youngest children presented their version of the Advent story. Staff, as usual, had worked incredibly hard with the children to produce what was seen today. With amazing little actors and narrators and the most wonderful, heartfelt and, at times, very lively singing, it was an absolute joy to be there. These beautiful children moved me to…

Harvest Assembly

Friday 4th October was CAFOD Family Fast Day for Harvest. As a community, we came together in church, to celebrate the wonderful harvest and food we are so lucky to have in this country. The children presented wonderful poems, thoughts, reflections and the singing was just amazing! Thanks to the generosity of parents and carers, the many food parcels donated have now been passed to Sr Marie at Carmel Care,…

International Day of Older People 1st October 2019

On 1st October, we again welcomed over 40 ‘older’ people to Sacred Heart School. The afternoon began with tea and cakes in the Hall, with the wonderful Chaplaincy Team escorting everybody over there safely. Our visitors then enjoyed an afternoon of activities with the children, in their classrooms. The afternoon finished with a beautiful assembly in which the Y6 presented a very moving dance. The assembly ended with a reflection…


This week, our Y4 children enjoyed a few days in the outdoors at Thornbridge. The weather was a little chilly but mostly bright and sunny. The children’s first task was to make their bed! The boys seemed to think this entailed laying the pillow case over the pillow and similarly, laying the duvet cover over the duvet! They were somewhat shocked when they discovered there was more to bed-making than…
