Welcome to Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School.
Sacred Heart is a Catholic school that welcomes both Catholic families and families from other Christian denominations and other faiths. We are an inclusive community which strives to meet the needs of every individual pupil.
Children thrive here in a happy and nurturing environment. They enjoy their learning. Our staff encourage a love of learning and work closely with parents to create a sharing community where all feel a sense of belonging.
We have high expectations of all pupils and an ambitious culture. We have a strong focus on progress. Pupils make better than expected progress compared to both Merton schools and nationally. We are proud of our pupils’ academic and personal achievements in EYFS, KS1 and KS2. Our standards in mathematics, English, reading and writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar are consistently well above national averages.
Our children are well-mannered, polite and friendly. Visitors to the school often comment on the friendly and welcoming environment that characterises our community.
As a school we specialise in Music, Performing Arts and PE. We have teachers who are highly skilled in these particular subjects and bring out the very best in our children. We also have a dedicated Spanish teacher. We enjoy a close partnership with our Parish Church, Sacred Heart and the Ursuline High School. Our collaborations enrich both the spiritual life of the school and the learning opportunities for our pupils.
We are a forward-looking school with a strong Governing Body and Leadership Team and are proud that the Chair of Governors is a National Leader of Governance. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Sacred Heart.
