Sacred Heart Primary School is the smallest Primary school
in Sandwell’s Local Authority for children from 3 to
11 years of age. We are a richly diverse community, and pride

experiences, together with the highest quality of care. Our
curriculum ensures that every child has the opportunity to
develop into confident, independent and caring young people
with a lifelong love of learning.

Head Girl. All pupils from Nursery to Year 6 have opportunities
to take part in many Out-of-school activities and clubs;

are warmly invited into the setting. We hold regular consultation
meetings during the year and Home-School Agreements are in
