Induction for New Reception Class



A very warm welcome from Mrs Michelle Fusi, Headteacher and all the staff of Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School.

We are delighted that your child will be joining our school’s Reception team in September and we are looking forward to meeting you all.
Starting school should be a happy and exciting time for both your child and for you. We know that you will have lots of questions to ask us and  the information here will begin to answer at least some of those questions.
We will do our very best to make you and your child feel secure, valued and ready for the start of the new school year. Our aim is to provide your child with the very best education possible and we hope that you will work with us, in partnership, to achieve this aim.
