Welcome to Year 1!

Welcome to Year 1! In our class we are all one big happy family. We want all members of our family to feel safe and to be respected. 

Our family consists of 27 children, Mrs Collinson, Mrs Ashworth and myself, Mr Whitaker. 

I am new to the Sacred Heart family but have been warmly welcomed and am enjoying my journey with a lovely group of children and a fantastic staff. 

If you ever need to talk about your child or have any concerns please feel free to speak to me at the end of the day, or by appointment. 

It's getting chilly!

Please make sure that all children have a nice warm coat for the winter. Children will be playing out 3 times per day (weather permitting). Even if it is cold, showery etc. all children will still be expected to be playing outside. 

Although it is warmer for you child if they have a hat, gloves and a scarf we cannot be held responsible for these items being lost. It is your child's responsibility to look after their belongings. 


Remember to make sure that your child has a PE kit ready for every Wednesday and Thursday. If your child does not have their PE kit they will be expected to participate in PE by writing down notes throughout the lesson.

Girls need to take off jewellery before PE as it is for their safety! We are not allowed to remove earrings so please make sure this is done at home. This also helps to prevent jewellery from going missing!
