Our PE day is Monday and Games are on Thursday, please send your child in their PE kit on both of these days.


Here at Leigh Sacred Heart, we aim to start your child’s journey through education in an exciting way, to encourage and develop your child’s love of learning. 


We are updating our indoor and outdoor provision as the year goes on and we change our indoor areas as we cover different topics. We do this to ensure your child is provided with lots of opportunities through play-based learning. 


We follow Sounds-Write for phonics, to help your child read and write and White Rose Maths to develop your child’s Mathematics knowledge. 


We love helping your children grow and sharing their journey with you.


If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to message one of us on Dojo.
