Welcome to our school. Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School is a place where children, parents and staff work together to create a positive, vibrant and supportive learning environment.

We are very proud of our school and of the children who form our school community. Our Christian values are at the heart of our school vision and ethos. Children are taught to value themselves and others. They aim to achieve high standards through challenging themselves and identifying their next steps of learning. We have an outstanding and dedicated team, who are committed to identifying and meeting the needs of all children. This has resulted in outstanding results for 2022, performing way above the national average in all subjects.

Our aim is to encourage children to appreciate that education involves not only trying to achieve their goals, but to also be good citizens. We try to help them achieve this through an innovative, creative, fun curriculum that goes beyond the classroom walls. We take our children on a variety of school trips every year in Lancashire, including residential visits, and also trips to local theatres. We give our children many varied opportunities, including the chance to flourish in drama, music and performances. We have given children the opportunity to take part in stage shows every year.

Our school is a warm and welcoming place. We are committed to ensuring that parents and school work together to provide the best possible future for our children.
