iPAY UPGRADE | FRIDAY 9th DEC 2pm
There will be an essential upgrade to the iPay system (used for lunch money, trips etc) on Friday 9th December at 2pm.
The system will therefore be unavailable for one or two hours from 2pm this Friday.
It will not affect any money you already have on your child's account, however, it will unfortunately remove any stored payment cards from the system.
This means when you log in after the upgrade has completed, you will need to add your payment card details again before you can top up your child's lunch account or pay for a trip.
Apologies for the inconvenience, but this matter is out of school's control and is coming from the company who provide the iPay system.
Thursday 8th December 2022 | 6.00pm - 7.30pm

UNESCO CONFERENCE - PARIS
Back in March, our Junior and Senior Choirs performed a song called 'A Small Part of the World' in the auditorium, and our performance was livestreamed to a UNESCO conference in Paris and to many hundreds of others participating virtually across Europe. The song represents standing together for what is right and we dedicated our performance to the people of Ukraine, when that tragic conflict had only recently begun.
Sacred Heart were invited to represent Newcastle as part of the North East Festival of Languages, and in the outro our students showcase some of the many languages spoken in our school community.
The video (linked below) combines footage from the enormous UN conference venue in Paris with our own footage from the Auditorium. What better way to celebrate the Goal of Intellect on this special Feast Day than to celebrate the musical and linguistic gifts of our Sacred Heart students!
CARER FRIENDLY SCHOOL AWARD
We are pleased to inform you that we have successfully been awarded a ‘Carer Friendly School Accreditation’ from Newcastle Carers. This award demonstrates to partners and pupils that our school is dedicated to supporting carers in Newcastle.
SHINE - SCIENCE CURRICULUM
Sacred Heart is leading an innovative new project that is seeking to sharpen the science skills of hundreds of schoolchildren in Newcastle and Northumberland.
Thanks to a grant of £90,000 from SHINE, and through a partnership with regional schools’ network Schools North East, a Science curriculum is being developed alongside six of our primary feeder schools that is designed to give primary pupils the skills they need to succeed in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics when they move to secondary school.
