Our Year 6 Student Councillors are Ben and Megan.  They would like to tell you why they like being at Blackwell so much!  Please click below to read their note:

Welcome to Blackwell Primary School

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!

CEMEX and Rainbridge - THANK YOU

A very big thank you to Cemex and Rainbridge, who will shortly be donating and building a new fence for the school pond and clearing the outdoor space for us.  More details coming soon!
