At Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, we firmly believe that regular attendance is vitally important to ensure the best possible outcomes for all of our children. Regular attendance means your child can make the most of their education, thus improving their chances in adult life. Being in school will also help your child’s social skills, such as making and keeping friendships.

A regular and punctual attendance pattern will help your child when they enter the world of work.

To ensure your child gets the best possible start to their education, we ask that you support regular school attendance and punctuality.

Our school day starts with children entering school at 8:40 a.m. with learning starting at 8:50 a.m. prompt. Please ensure your child is on school premises and ready to line up at 8:45 a.m. The school day ends at 3.15pm

Any children arriving late will have to wait in reception and a record of why they are late made. They will also be missing the vital start to the school day and the building blocks for the days learning, as well as disturbing other children who have already started their lessons.

Choosing and applying for a place at school is one of the most important things we can do for our children.

As a Catholic School, the Trust Intervention Board is responsible for setting the Admissions Policy and allocating places based on its criteria. The current Admission Policy can be found below.

Prospective parents are advised to read the Admissions Policy carefully and we warmly welcome visits to the school. It is also important to fill in the school’s own Supplementary Information Form and return this to school.

The Local Authority coordinates the admissions process on behalf of the school.

Further information about what to do if the application for your child is not successful can be found on the Local Authority website.

The timetable for admission appeals can be found here.

Please contact the School Office if you would like any more information.
