SACRED HEART GOALS
All Sacred Heart schools across the world share a set of five principles that all students aspire to abide by.
These five goals articulate the core components of a Sacred Heart Education, and charge our community with a unified mission. At the heart of our philosophy is the belief that each student possesses unique gifts. Our role is to unearth those gifts, nurture them, and empower each child of the Sacred Heart to share those gifts with the global community.
Students work towards becoming Goals Ambassadors and each academic year we place a particular focus on one of the goals, so that during the student's time in school they will have spent time reflecting in depth on each goal.
FOR 2023-24 WE ARE FOCUSSING ON THE GOAL OF PERSONAL GROWTH.
The Goal of Personal Growth affirms the uniqueness and worth of each individual member of the school community. It aims to provide opportunities for self-development, personal formation and self-knowledge as well as to encourage the sharing of gifts and talents for the benefit of the community and society as a whole.
Building a sense of community is essential for society and is a priority for schools which are rooted in and living out Gospel values. At the heart of life in a Sacred Heart School are activities which promote this sense of community. Our heritage and the schools network bring an added dimension to our experience of identity and community. The attitudes, skills and the relationships developed in school raise awareness for each one of a shared world where partnership and responsibility are vital.
At the heart of our charism, bringing all the Goals together, we prioritise Social Awareness that impels to action. This gives our whole school community the tools, knowledge, values and opportunities to learn how to address injustice, conflict resolution and environmental issues, thus becoming agents of change.
Our schools foster in each person a love of learning. The education provided is creative, rigorous, challenging and promotes critical thinking. All members of the community are given opportunities to progress, to flourish and to develop their gifts and talents.
Rooted in the love of Jesus Christ, our schools promote a personal relationship with God and foster the spiritual life of its members. They seek to create an atmosphere where the attitudes of the open Heart of Jesus are reflected in all: attitudes of respect, compassion, forgiveness and generosity. The development of Faith is at the centre of our life as Sacred Heart schools and its presence should be visible in the daily interaction between all in the community.

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.
