"Unlocking Potential, Providing Opportunities, Achieving Goals"
School has now re-opened to all pupils and it is lovely to see the children back in school. Updates will continue to be given via the website, by text and by letter. The latest updates are available by clicking here.
It is lovely to see so many children back in school. Please continue to help us by adhering to the social distancing regulations and seeking medical advice where needed.
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!
We are shortly due to restart our one-to-one music lessons in partnership with Cadenza4Kids. If you'd like details of this please contact the school/ask the staff in your child's bubble, or click here: Music sign up letter
