PHOTO ALBUM of Development work progress

The start of a new academic year is always an exciting time in schools but at Sacred Heart we anticipate the autumn term with greater enthusiasm than usual as we look forward to unveiling our brand new Foundation Stage building!

At the time of writing, the demolition workers are in, the site is being cleared and prepared and there is no turning back.  The new building will signal the redevelopment of the whole site in due course and will be a fitting setting for our Foundation Stage provision, judged ‘outstanding’ in our most recent ISI Inspection.

Comprising separate classrooms for the Nursery and Reception groups, the accommodation has been specifically designed with the needs of young children in mind.  Free flow access to the outdoor learning environment is an essential requirement as children learn through exploration, experimentation and discovery indoors and out.

Early morning and after school provision will also be based in the new building so that the whole school has the opportunity to sample what is to come!

We also start the new academic year with a new award to our name: the Sports Mark Gold Award, which recognises the school’s commitment to and success in a wide range of sports for pupils across the age range, from Nursery to Y6.

There is always a fresh challenge, something new to aim for in the life of a primary school. ‘Dull’ is quite simply not on the agenda!
