School is in the news again! Our recent successful bid to the Foyle Foundation for our school library is now paying off, and the children are hands on with our new books. Thank you to the Derbyshire Times for featuring us.
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. Information on our school ethos and values is available here. Our KS2 Performance data can be found here.
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!
For a paper copy of any policy, or any other information available on the school website, please contact the school office.
