Sacred Heart Croydon
Welcome to Sacred Heart Primary School, Croydon. Located atop “Monastery Hill,” our school community is a happy, friendly, caring and welcoming place where your child will be nurtured and guided to reach their full potential through pedagogy and curriculum that is personalised and engaging. This website provides a ‘snapshot’ of our school for prospective families and is a source of ongoing information to our current families.
In joining our community, we engage in a true partnership between family and school. I respect highly that parents are the first educators of their children and when joining Sacred Heart, we will partner with families to nurture each child’s growth and development. Our teachers are dedicated professionals who seek to bring out the best in each of our students - genuinely interested in each child’s safety, welfare and holistic development. The teachers at Sacred Heart Primary School are resolute in ensuring that each child attains their full potential.
Sacred Heart is a Catholic Parish Primary School. We are committed to educating the whole child – spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally and creatively. We continually strive to
create a Catholic learning community in which Christian values are taught, through formal lessons, and through our values, interactions and relationships with parents, teachers, students, families and
the wider community.
At Sacred Heart Primary School, we aim to develop the attitudes and skills, which will equip the children to participate fully in the world of the 21st century. We believe that children learn best when they are active participants in their own learning. Our school caters for individual differences and believes that children should progress at individual rates and be successful in what they do. We strive to unlock each child’s potential so that they may contribute positively to the development of our changing world.
Whether you are looking to enrol your eldest in Prep, have moved into the area or are looking for a change of school for your child/ren, the staff and I look forward to welcoming you to the Sacred Heart School community.
It is a privilege to lead the Sacred Heart School community in Croydon. You are all very welcome to visit Sacred Heart - please contact the school office, or book via our enrolment page, to make a time to
meet with me and have a tour of our great school.
Sacred Heart Primary School is a community where all members grow in the knowledge, spirit and life of the Catholic Church. We strive to live the Gospel values guided by the teachings of Jesus.
By providing a well balanced curriculum we endeavour to create a learning environment in which all children are taught the skills necessary for them to reach their full potential.
Sacred Heart intends to live its vision by:
Building relationships between all in the community are modelled on the Gospel values, whilst respecting the diverse faith traditions and beliefs in the community.
Ensuring a vibrant and dynamic learning community exists, with a strong emphasis on developing social and emotional competencies and capabilities.
Where Life Long learning is modelled and success is achieved by all and celebrated.
Motivating students to be enthusiastic and engaged learners, reflecting on their own learning and its application to their daily lives.
Developing happy, confident, resilient, responsible children who are willing to take risks to solve everyday problems in a restorative manner knowing that their choices and behaviours affect the lives of others.
Promoting personal growth and positive self-esteem through the recognition of individual skills and talents.
Ensuring inclusiveness is evident by catering for student’s individual needs, learning styles, backgrounds, perspectives and interests.
Providing Students and their families with a friendly, supportive, productive and safe environment so that they feel connected to the school community.
Sacred Heart of Jesus be with us and send us wisdom through the Holy Spirit
To guide our decisions and actions,
so that we may do our part
in the building of the Kingdom of God.
May we reflect to all the loving care
of God our Father.
May we grow in the likeness of you the
Son who came to serve and to give your life for all.
May Mary our mother, and our special patrons,
St. Edmund and St. Francis De Sales
plead on our behalf to the Father,
through you the Son in the Holy Spirit.
