Sacred Heart is "Outstanding"

On 18th and 19th May, inspectors arrived at Sacred Heart to carry out an inspection on behalf of the Bishop (Section 48).  Their focus was to look at the work of the RE department and the Catholic life of the Academy.  The inspectors graded the Academy as "Outstanding".  

Here is a short extract from the report:

"Excellent relationships exist between staff and pupils.  These relationships are evident throughout the school community.  They facilitate the spiritual growth of the individual and of the whole academy.  Behaviour of pupils is outstanding across the key stages.  Pupils appreciated that staff work hard for them and they feel safe and trust to their guidance on their educational and spiritual journey"

We are delighted with the Outstanding grading, but recognise the contribution that everyone makes to this central aspect of our  school life.  The inspectors were impressed with just how much impact the local community had on our academy.

Thank you to everyone, governors, local parishioners, priests, teachers and of course, parents for your continuing support.  It is what makes our Academy the special community that we are.
