Welcome to Class 1


Hello, I am Mrs Bancroft and I have been teaching at Sacred Heart for many, many years! I expect I have taught your big brothers or sisters too! I love being part of our Sacred Heart community, it’s really such a special place.
This year I will be teaching in Class 1 with Mrs Carroll, and also mentoring our recently qualified teachers – I love both roles so much. When I am not at work, I love to go to the beach with my family and search for sunshine, fish and chips and ice-cream!
Sacred Heart is a wonderful school and I am so proud to work here.
