Sacred Heart P.S. is a co-educational Catholic Maintained Primary School admitting pupils from aged 4 to 11 and has a current enrolment of 82 pupils. It was erected on its present site in 1966 as the replacement school for the Old Blackfort Primary School.
The school is located in the townland of Tattyreagh, approximately half way between Omagh and Fintona, and enjoys a spacious layout with a tarred play area for both infants and older pupils and a grass football pitch along with lawns to the front and rear of the school.
At present there are three permanent classrooms along with one temporary classroom, a library and P.E./dining hall. Each class is well equipped with the teaching resources necessary for delivering a modern balanced curriculum. A friendly, caring atmosphere pervades the school and the entire staff and governors are committed to ensuring the highest possible educational standards and provision for the pupils.
General Aims of the School
In order to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for every pupil in a safe, caring, secure and stimulating environment we aim:
- to develop good relationships within both the classroom and school
- to value pupils, staff and parents as individuals and ensure that they are treated with dignity and respect
- to co-operate with the home, the parish and the wider community in the promotion of good behaviour and self-discipline
- to foster in the children responsible attitudes and values so that they may become prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experience of adolescent and adult life
- to encourage the Catholic ethos of the school so that the moral and religious development of each child is fully realised
- to present the children with a stimulating and imaginative environment both inside and outside the classroom so that learning, success and personal satisfaction for themselves are achieved
Of paramount importance in helping to achieve these aims will be the need for the development of mutual trust and the building and fostering of good relationships at every level.
