Welcome to the Federation of Sacred Heart and St Mary’s RC Primary Schools, Battersea

From September we have made changes to the school timings. It is important that your child is on time for school every day. Gates will be open 10 minutes before start time and children encouraged to arrive early to get settled in and ready for the school day.


Welcome to the Federation of Sacred Heart and St Mary’s RC Primary School. We are a thriving and active Catholic school community in Battersea. May I take this opportunity to welcome you to our community and to thank you for choosing The Federation of Sacred Heart and St Mary’s Battersea.

In July 2015, following a period of fact finding and consultation with parents, staff, the Diocese, the local authority and other stakeholders in the community, Sacred Heart and St. Mary’s formalised the existing successful collaboration and became a hard federation: The Federation of Sacred Heart and St. Mary’s Catholic schools, Battersea.

These two Catholic primary schools, within a mile of each other are committed to ensuring the highest possible standards are met for children at both schools and that they work together, united in their Catholic mission to develop an education centered in the Gospel and on God’s love for all. We provide support to our pupils and our community, recognising that by working together, we can help every child achieve their full potential. Both schools are in the Archdiocese of Southwark.

While each school retains its own historic identity, uniform and its own admissions policy, parents can be confident that regardless of which school their child attends, they will enjoy the same strong leadership, the same enriched, broad, balanced curriculum and the same inclusive caring ethos.

Together our two schools will continue to be actively involved in the mission of the Church, to make Christ known to all people, to work in partnership with parents who are the (primary) first teachers of their children in the practice of their faith, to work with the local parishes in creating and maintaining that Home- School- Parish link, and to be aware of our place in the wider community in seeking to promote the common good of our society.

At the heart of our school life and curriculum is our Mission Statement. Our children are educated and nurtured as we teach and live the Gospel values.

“A man took a grain of mustard seed, and sowed it in his field. Indeed, the seed is smaller than all seeds but when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in its branches.” (Mathew 13.31)
