BLACKWELL PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Unlocking Potential, Providing Opportunities, Achieving Goals"
We are a busy school with lovely children and dedicated staff.
We actively encourage children to have a positive attitude and strive to create a love of learning by providing a wide range of opportunities within school. We praise and encourage perseverance, resilience and risk taking and ensure children have the confidence to make mistakes. We work hard to prepare our children to be happy, successful and responsible members of society in the future.
Safeguarding and the welfare of our children is a priority and we work with parents, carers and support agencies in an open and honest relationship to ensure children who attend Blackwell are well cared for and protected. Please do take a look at our keeping safe sections under the children and parent tabs and read our safeguarding policies for more information.
The website will provide you with information about school policies and procedures as well as an opportunity to see some of the exciting activities we take part in on a day to day basis.
Thank you for visiting!
Chatsworth Partnership - Food for Life
Blackwell has officially achieved the Bronze Award for Food for Life. We have worked very hard to improve our awareness and opportunities for pupils to learn all about food, where it comes from and how to maintain sustainability. We will now be working hard towards our Silver Award. To do so, we have established a link with Chatsworth House and Farm Park - more information about this exciting partnership will follow soon!
Safeguarding is given the highest priority at Blackwell. There may be times when adults are concerned about children in the community. If so, then you can contact Derbyshire County Council Child Protection department on 01629 533190 or the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Boswell and our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs Gardner.
Please don't ignore concerns;
Child protection is everyone's responsibility.
Summer Reading Challenge
If your child completed the Summer Reading Challenge, please bring their certificate into school so we can take a copy of it - children will be rewarded with extra stamps for taking part in such a wonderful learning event!
We have all enjoyed being back at school. It has been lovely to see all of the children and hear about their exciting adventures over the summer. A warm welcome to all of our new children and parents, we are looking forward to working with you over the coming years.
