The school office is unable to action unsolicited sales and marketing calls.  If your query or contact relates to this please send a message to our main school email account - info@blackwell.derbyshire.sch.uk, or send us material via post.


To leave a message about a child's absence, please call 01773 811281 and select option 1.  The school office check these messages regularly throughout the day and update registers accordingly.  Please call as early as possible on the first day of absence.  A note to your child's class teacher on their return stating the reason for absence is very helpful.  If your child is absent from school and we have not received a call or message giving a reason for absence, please note it is our responsibility to ensure your child's safety, so we will send a text or call to check why they are not in school.


We are no longer available to receive or send fax - please email us instead.
