"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!

Big Bandana Bake Afternoon

We raised a magnificent £701.44 at the Big Bandana Bake afternoon.  This is the most money ever raised ​in a single event at Blackwell Primary.  We can't thank everybody enough for their support and to our wonderful Buddies for organising the event.  The money will be going to a very good cause.

Mr Ward's cave

Mr Ward's class are making a cave in their classroom.  For this we will need donations of big cardboard boxes and any working torches you may have.  Please give them in to class.  Thank you.

Eco greenhouse

For our eco greenhouse, we are in need of 1,100 empty plastic 2L pop bottles.  Please wash them out and remove labels before bringing them to school.  Thank you to those who have already donated.
