A massive congratulations to the Year 5 and 6 rugby team!

Yesterday, having made it through a qualifying round a few months ago, the children took part in the Black Country finals day at Veseyans Rugby Club. 12 teams from across Streetly, Dudley, Sandwell and Wolverhamptom battled it out to be crowned champions. We got off to a flying start, beating Lindans 4-3, St Peter and Paul 4-3, Fallings Park 6-3 and Hately Health 5-3. After a close defeat to Howley Grange, we finished second in our group and were left to battle it out against Oak Park for 3rd place overall. The game ended in a 4-4 draw, meaning both schools took home a well-deserved bronze medal.

Many thanks, you did us proud, to: Archie C (3 tries), Archie H (10 tries), Jovan (5 tries), Millie-Rae (1 try), Reisha, Annabelle, Arthur (1 try), Daniel, Joseph (1 try), Jacob and Harry (5 Tries)


Year 5 and 6 Cricket

On Thursday 27th June, The Year 5/6 cricket team represented Walsall at the annual Black Country Games, held at the University of Wolverhampton. The games brought together primary and secondary schools from across Walsall, Wolverhampton, Dudley and Sandwell. The team performed brilliantly, winning two out of their 3 league games (only losing to the eventual winners), taking us to the 3rd place play-off - which we won - earning us a Bronze medal. Many thanks to Theo, Savannah, Katie, Harry, Cohen, Ranveer, Rohan and Jovan for their skills, both with bat and ball and for superbly representing Blackwood School.

Tag Rugby - 8th May 2024


Huge congratulations to the Year 5/6 Rugby team who progressed through to the area finals day, after winning their group at Vesyans Rugby club on Wednesday 8th May.

Despite their limited experience of rugby, the children adapted extremely quickly and demonstrated fantastic tactical knowledge, skill and teamwork.

After a close first game, beating Manor 5-4, we went on to beat Lindens 7-2, St. Anne’s 8-3. In the final game, we were up against Leighswood who had also won their 3 games. In a very closely contested game and on a knife edge at 3-3, the ball fell to Millie-Rae, who powered home a try. The final whistle blew moments later!

Try scorers: Harry 10, Archie H 6, Millie-Rae 2, Jovan 2, Archie C 2, Arthur 1, JJ 1. 

Many thanks to: Harry, Archie H, Archie C, Arthur, Millie Rae, Reisha, Annabelle, JJ, Jovan, Daniel and Jacob.


Netball - Monday 29th April 2024


Many thanks to Millie-Rae, Mollie, Freya, Belle, Hollie, Prabjot, Ella and Reisha for taking part in the ‘Stingers’ netball tournament at Streetly School on Monday 29th April 2024.

In a tough group, playing against some high-quality opposition, the children demonstrated great teamwork, perseverance and focus – all key areas of our school values.

Many thanks also, to Miss Taylor for the after-school coaching that she has provided.

Year 5 and 6 Football


Many thanks to the boys and girls from Years 5 and 6, who took part in tournaments, at Streetly School on the 26th and 27th February.

Both teams faced strong competition from Lindens, St Anne's, Delves, Bluecoat, Mayfield and Manor and whilst results didn't always go our way, the children represented Blackwood impeccably. 

Once again, we are very grateful for all the children who put themselves forward and made themselves available and we look forward to providing a further opportunity in the summer term.

Thank you to: Savannah, Chloe, Sienna, Ella, Millie-Rae, Marni-Rae, Libby, Amelia, Niah, Rohan, Harry, Tommy, Cohen, Stanley, Ewan, Max and Sami.

Year 5 and 6 Sportshall Athletics


A really big thank you to the boys and girls, from years 5 and 6, who took part in the Sportshall Athletics event at Streetly on the 15th November. The children competed in indoor 'track and field' events, which included: Sprints, Relays, obstacle courses, high jump, long jump, triple jump, Javelin and more. It was a pleasure to be able to take 20 children who had the opportunity to represent the school. Once again, I must commend the children on their positive attitude throughout and the support they gave to their teammates. 


Many thanks to: Millie, Soriyah, Isabelle, Freya, Poppy, Holly, Marni-Rae, Libby, Lily-Mai, Sianna, Archie, Tommy, Idrees, Arjun, Cohen, Aidan, Arvind, Carter and Arthur.

Many thanks also to Mrs Cureton for her support at the event. 

Year 5/6 Netball


A massive well done to the Year 5 and 6 girls, who took part in the High Five netball event at Streetly on the 23rd October. Despite it being officially ‘not a competitive event’, this didn’t stop the girls from really give it their all. We played 3 matches. In the first we beat Lindens 3-0 with points from Millie (x2) and Hafsah. We then beat a very strong Cooper and Jordan 1 -0 (point from Prabjot) but then lost to another Lindens 2-0, despite dominating the second half. Mr Pearce was very proud of the girls’ professionalism and their ability to rotate around the different attacking and defensive roles. Many thanks to: Bell, Millie-Rae, Freya, Molly, Chloe, Hafsah and Prabjot and to the parents for their support.

Year 5/6 football

On Wednesday 18th October, eight children from Year 6 and 5 took part in a football tournament at the WBA academy as part of our link with the Foundation.

In our group, we beat Coleshill 1-0, with a goal from Tommy, a 0-0 draw with Netherton and finished with a 6-0 win over Hawthorn (Cohen x 3, Ewan, Harry and Tommy).

This put us top of the group and into the semi-final with Copwell. The game was very evenly matched and a 0-0 draw sent us to penalties, which we unfortunately lost.

A massive thank you and well done to Savannah, Tommy, Cohen, Rohan, Stanley, Ewan, Harry and Max for their wonderful performances and representing Blackwood impeccably.

***Fantastic News Alert***


After a very impressive qualifying tournament at Streetly a few months ago, our Girl’s football team finally got to play at the area finals. As an added bonus, the event took place at Walsall’s Bescot stadium and the club allowed the tournament to be played on the first team pitch. The girls were put into a league of seven teams and were ruthless in their approach, recording six wins out of six, scoring fourteen goals, with no reply. This included 3-0 victories over St. Anne’s, St. Mary’s and Delves, 2-0 victories over Lindens and Pelsall Village and a 1-0 victory over St. Michael’s. Scarlett weighed in with 5 goals, 2 each for Savannah, Navneet and Lily, 1 each for Fran and Meadow and an own goal. As far as team performances go, this was very special, as the girls have been representing the school, as a squad, since Year 4. They have been a privilege to manage and watch and it has been wonderful to see them develop into confident footballers. I hope they can continue their form and enthusiasm as they make their way into secondary school. Scarlett, Lily, Evie-Rose, Seren, Meadow, Savannah, Laycee-Mae, Francesca, Navneet and Evie – we’re proud of you all.

Wednesday 26th April 2023

Many thanks to fifteen boys and girls from Years 5 and 6 who took part in Streetley's annual Sportshall Athletics competition.

The event, which pits the children against other schools in a series of track and field events, showcased some wonderful talent in a competition that went down to the wire.

After events such as; long jump, triple jump, relays, sprints and javelin, we were just nudged into second place by Lindens, who go through to the finals.

I would like to thank the following children for their superb effort and once again representing Blackwood School wonderfully - Navneet, Meadow, Scarlett, Evie-Rose, Seren, Fran, Lily and Rory, Thom, Jeevan, Tommy, Cohen, Ranveer, Aidan, Arvind.  


March 2023

Well done to the Year 5 and 6 Girl’s football team, who are through to the Walsall area finals at the Bescott Stadium. The girls won 5 and drew 1 and finished top of the group and will now go on to play the winners of other groups in the area.

A huge well done and a thank you to Laycee-Mae, Evie, Seren, Savannah, Scarlett, Lily, Meadow, Evie-Rose and Navneet.


In the same week, a group of Year 5 and 6 boys and girls took part in a rugby tournament at the Vesyans Rugby Club. Despite poor weather and learning as they went, the children gave a great account of themselves and produced a few minutes and some great moments of individual brilliance and team play.

Thank you very much to Ollie, Ewan, Navneet, Rory, Thom, Seren, James, Marley, Scarlett, Meadow, Jeevan, Sebastian and Rowan.

WBA Football Tournament


On Friday 25th November, the Year 6 Football team took part in a tournament at West Bromwich Albion as part of our ongoing partnership with the club. Having taken part last year, we were fully aware of the standard of opposition and rose well to the challenge. Despite our best efforts and a wonderful 2-0 against Grace Mary Primary (with two superb goals from Dylan), we were restricted to a couple of hard-fought, goalless draws and few very narrow defeats. The children responded brilliantly to several changes in tactics, which resulted in an excellent draw with the eventual group winners, Glebefields Primary. Mr Pearce was extremely proud of their efforts, and we look forward to seeing how the team fares in future competitions. Many thanks to Scarlett, Roman, Sebastian, Rory, Oscar, George, Alfie and Dylan. 

20th October


The Year 6 football team took part in an Engage Football festival at the Streetly Academy. After getting so close to winning the Bescot tournament in the Summer Term last year, the girls were itching to get their teeth into further competition, Despite the games being aimed at participation, the girls won each of their games convincingly, which bodes very well for when the competitive games begin in the new year.

Thank you to the girls who attended: Laycee-Mae, Francesca, Seren, Savannah, Scarlett, Lily, Meadow and Navneet,

6th October




Thank you to the Year 5 and 6 boys and girls who attended the Inspire Dodgeball festival at Streetly, aimed at getting the children active and interested in a new activity.

The children played a round robin of games and performed brilliantly. Thanks to all who attended!

Sports Captains


Our sporting school leaders for Oak are Sebastian & Alisha. For Beech it is Charlotte & Samran and for Maple it is Scarlet & Roman. These positions are awarded by collective staff discussion, children nominated for leadership qualities and talent they have shown, mainly through their time in UKS2. Congratulations to our School Leaders.

Sporty Lunchtimes


We are utilising some of our Government Sports Premium funding (while we still have this ring fenced funding stream) to provide some more structured sporty activities at lunchtime. Miss Sprag, a coach from Sports Plus, is working with the children during lunchtime break on some new games and coaching our Midday Supervisory Assistants so they are able to support and encourage more sporty games. We’ll have Miss Sprag with us for this school year. So far she has been met by very enthusiastic children!

Welcome to the 2022 - 2023 academic year.

Dancers at the Lichfield Festival Day of Dance


Our dance club worked with a festival choreographer on a disco style routine which they performed last Sunday in Beacon Park as part of the Lichfield Festival. Our talented dancers adapted to the lack of space on stage and glitches in the music to deliver an energetic and graceful performance. Well done to all. You represented our school brilliantly and we are proud of you.

7th July


The Year 4 girls took part in a football festival at Streetly. For many of them, it was their first time taking part in a school-based competition and they did brilliantly! After an opening game loss - with the last kick of the game - we went on to win the next 3 games. Savannah scored all three goals in those games. In the final game, Katie scored with a spectacular solo effort, with the game ending in a draw. We look forward to seeing how 2 these girls progress when they are in Year 5. Thank you to: Iris, Francesca, Reisha, Goodness, Savannah, Florence, Katie, Holly and Eliza for their excellent efforts.”

6th July


Year 5 were invited to Aldridge School for a morning of various sports. A few local primary schools attended. The children participated in a range of activities related to a secondary school PE curriculum. The activities ranged from fencing, boxing, dance and climbing. The children had a fantastic time and expanded on their teamwork and coordination skills.

1st July


The Year 6 boys and girls took part in the area finals day at the Bescot Stadium in Walsall. 


The girls played some very tough opposition in Cooper and Jordan, St Anne's, Rivers and Reedswood. The girls finished 3rd, winning 1 and drawing 4 - making them very tough to beat. They only needed one goal in the last game to finish 1st - it was so close! Many thanks to Laycee-Mae, Francesca, Seren, Macie, Scarlett, Lily, Meadow and Navneet, whom I'm sure will want to go one step further next year.


Harry reports on the Y6 football tournament: “On Friday 1st July we travelled to Bescot Stadium to compete in the second half of the Walsall Primary Schools’ football competition. In the first match we were up against St Joseph’s who were extremely physical and tough to beat. At the end of the match the score was a draw. Our luck then turned around and the Blackwood boys were on fire! We won the following three matches 1-0, 2-0, 3-0. After all the matches had taken place, we settled down together to find out the results. Who had won the tournament? It was a very close call so it all came down to goal difference between ourselves and St Joseph’s but we scored two more goals than them so Blackwood had conquered the competition! What a year it has been for us as the first team starting back after lockdown. We have won lots of local tournaments and have come second in the regionals. It has been a fantastic way to end our school life at Blackwood and we hope you all follow in our footsteps and continue our passion and success.” Well done to: Jacob, Jensen, Rio, Harry Reece, Henry, Jake, Lucas, Adam and Theo.


We are justly proud of all our sporting children who represent the school so well and so proudly.

Sports Days


We were pleased to be able to hold the sports mornings for Nursery, Reception and KS2 over the last week. The weather was fine generally so we were able to proceed as planned. The Nursery and Reception teaching teams altered the format a little to maximise the children’s involvement. The consensus was that this worked better and the children enjoyed the activities. Judging by the screams of encouragement, our older children enjoyed their mornings too, organised by Mr Pearce and the UKS2 teachers. This was a little more competitive as the children worked in house teams 2 to complete their sporting events. The weather held out, which was an added bonus!


The official result were:


OAK - 13390

MAPLE - 13972

BEECH - 13478


Well done to MAPLE!!! smileysmiley

Dancing at the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games


We know we have talented teachers and many have extra talent that shines through in their own leisure activities. Can you guess who will be ballet dancing in the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games?!! Yes it’s our own Ms Neuenhaus who auditioned and was chosen to participate on Thursday 28th July. Look out for her on the television as she makes an appearance. She was also chosen as a volunteer so will be involved in supporting three events. What a great way to start the summer break!

Dancers shine at Dance Festival


54 dancers from Y2 – Y6, who work with Miss Taylor at our Dance Clubs, spent last Wednesday at the Walsall Music Hub Arena at a Summer Festival of Dance. They started the day by learning a brand new dance choreographed by a professional choreographer before performing their dance pieces that they have all been working hard on at school in front of an audience made from friends and family. For lots of the children this was their first time on a stage and to see their faces light up was something very special. All of the dancers performed amazingly and as ever, their behaviour was exceptional. Year 4 were true professionals, carrying on when their music cut out part way through. Luckily they were able to perform their dance again later in the show. Thanks also to the valiant volunteers who accompanied our dancers (Mrs Jones, Mrs Greenwood, Mrs Wright, Mrs Oakes-Dennis and Mrs Oaks), giving up their day, to make it possible for us to attend the event. Maggie Lewis, Director of the Black Country Dance Hub emailed to say “Your students were amazing”. It always makes me proud when we have such lovely feedback about our children and means when we apply to join in such events, we are welcomed with such pleasure. Many thanks to Miss Taylor for teaching our dancers and seeking out opportunities for them. For our older dancers, participation in this year’s Lichfield Festival Day of Dance has been secured

27th May


In honour of the Queen's love of the Highland Games, and with the help and ideas of the students, we were able to create our own version of the games in school. Throughout the day, the children came out in their year groups and had a go at:


  • Caber toss
  • Farmer's carry
  • Tug of War
  • Shot Putt
  • Sheaf toss
  • Highland dance


Fun was had by all and came with some great feedback - who knows - it might make a comeback...

Upcoming Sports Days


Sports Days are coming up after Half Term to which parents are invited. Usually when we hold these events in early June we are lucky with the weather but if it does rain, the event moves to the reserve day so children don’t slip on wet grass. Most events will start by 9.15 – 9.30am because staff come early and pitch in to set the field up for a prompt start. There are four events, a date for each phase of the school so we have the space we need. Each event will take around an hour, a little longer for KS2. If you are able to join us, please note the dates.


  • UKS2 Sports Day (& reserve) Fri 10th June & Tues 21st June
  • LKS2 Sports Day (& reserve) Mon 13th June & Mon 20th June
  • KS1 Sports Day (& reserve) Tues 14th June & Wed 22 nd June

Big well done!!


Aamir’s Participation in the National Youth Fencing Championships


Aamir (in Year 6) travelled to Sheffield on Bank Holiday Monday to participate in the Youth Regional Fencing Qualifiers, held at the Institute of Sport. He went through to the knockout stages but sadly lost to the No. 1 seed. Nevertheless, it was a fantastic experience for Aamir. He’ll improve his skills faster by playing and learning from the best regional players. Here he is pictured in his fencing clothing.

1st April




For the first time in nearly 2 years, our children took part in an indoor sporting activity and what a great one to start off with! The Sports Hall Athletics, at the Streetly School, gave 14 of our boys and girls the opportunity to take part in sprinting, long-jump, high jump, triple jump and relays. A lot of fun was had by all at a very competitive event which pushed them to the limit. As is always the case, the Blackwood pupils represented the school excellently and did us proud. Thank you to: Jake, Mason, Henry, Lucas W, Reece, Henry, Lucas M, Aroush, Inaaya, Poppy, Eesha, Yvonne, Aila and Olivia

Last week it was competition week for all the children that attend City of Birmingham Gymnastics Club. Each child had to do two vaults and a floor routine. It was the first time parents had been able to see their child Holly in action since the pandemic started in 2020. Holly did really well and came second overall in her group. Holly’s parents are rightly very proud of her and we are too! Here she is holding her certificate. We are sure this will be one of many more to come. Well done Holly, we are proud of you too! Another blossoming gymnast is Tanvi Gadia. She is 3 years younger than Holly and attends a gymnastics club, GMAC at the Alexander Stadium. Tanvi performed very confidently in her Recreational Gymnastics Scheme competition winning first place in the vaults, first place in her floor work and first place overall in her age category for these disciplines. All of Tanvi’s hard work paid off to her delight and that of her parents. Well done Tanvi, we are proud of you too. Those certificates need to be framed and hung on your wall.




Blackwood Y5 Girls Footballing Success Congratulations to the Year 5 girls who took part in a football tournament at the Streetly School earlier this week and won their group. In their 6 matches, they won 5 and drew 1 match, scoring 8 goals in the tournament. Mr Pearce reports that: “Despite some close score lines, the girls produced 6 dominant displays, full of excellent passing and positive attacking football, to make it through to a final round which will take place after the Easter break”. The girls’ team included Francesca, Macie, Navneet, Laycee-Mae, Scarlett, Meadow, Evie-Rose, Lily and Seren. Well done girls, we are proud of you all and look forward to you playing in the tournament final after Easter when we will capture a photo of you together in your team strip!

Football - 7.3.22

After two rounds of tournaments and 48 teams we made our way to the Madejski Stadium in Reading to represent WBA in the Southern Championship finals.

It was an early start (6:30) and a 3 hour journey but the children were in great spirits.

On arrival we learnt that we were grouped with Reading, Luton, Bournemouth and Swansea, all of whom were very well organised.

Despite our best efforts, we finished a respectable 4th in our group against very tough opposition and on the end of very narrow score-lines.

The whole school are extremely proud of your efforts - Reece, Rio, Theo, Jenson, Harry, Henry, Jake and Lucas - Thank you smiley


Football - 12.1.22

Our Y6 boys football team played the second round of the Premier League Primary Stars football competition, held at the Baggies ground in West Brom this week. Mr Pearce was extremely proud and thought their play as a team was inspiring! The score sheet reflected this with only 1 goal in 5 matches getting past Theo, our goalie. Theo trusted in the strength of our defence: Harry, Jensen and Jake and his trust was well placed! Reece, the team captain, was top goal scorer with 5 goals, Henry scored 4 and Rio scored 1 goal. Assists for that score sheet are attributed to Lucas, Jake, Jensen, Harry and Theo!


Our winning team go onto the next stage of the competition, where they will represent West Bromwich Albion at a tournament in Reading in March.

Football - 24.11.21

We played a football tournament organised by West Bromwich Albion, involving 20 schools. We had to compete to get through to the next level (regional level).  We played 5 games:

  1. Annie Lennard 0 v Blackwood 3
  2. Ferndale 0 v Blackwood 3
  3. George Dixon 0 v Blackwood 0
  4. Moorlands 0 v Blackwood 8
  5. St Pauls 0 v Blackwood 0

After these results were counted in, we were top of the group so we then headed through to the semis. We managed to win against Tipton by scoring 5 goals to their 1 and got through to the regionals. We will play the regionals in January.


Well done to the team who played very well: Harry, Reece, Theo, Jake, Henry, Jensen, Lucas and Rio.


Here's to a new sporting year - and fingers crossed - plenty of opportunities.

Results will be announced shortly...

Year 5 and 6 Football


Face-to-face competition is back!!!!


On Wednesday 9th June, our boys were in action after school, playing in a football festival at Streetly Academy. Of the five matches, our team beat Linden’s Second team 5-0, they beat Linden’s First Team 5-0. They went on to win against the Delves 3-0, and to beat Meadow View 1-0. Only St Anne’s Team managed to keep our boys at bay, drawing the match 0-0 using clever tactics to disrupt our boys’ flow. Everyone scored at least one goal, except for Harrison, our goalie, who kept a clean sheet conceding no goals all evening. The team played very well, showed good sportsmanship and enjoyed the Festival, Mr Pearce couldn’t give them any advice to help them play better! He was very proud of the team. Our crosses into the box in the first three matches were exceptional. Well done boys: Jenson, Henry, Reece, Hadley, Ted, Harrison, Jacob and Lucas. Gareth Southgate, please take note!!


Our girls were also in action on Thursday 10th June. They played 6 matches and were undefeated, drawing with Lindens First Team 0-0, beating Linden’s Second Team 1-0, drawing with St Anne’s 0-0, beating Delves Second Team 1-0, beating Meadow View 1-0 and beating Delves First Team 1-0. The girls found it tiring playing 6 matches but thought the festival was great fun. Danielle, Frances, Scarlett and Poppy were our goal scorers. Sukhmani played five of the matches in goal and conceded none and Danielle made sure that she kept this record when she took a turn in goal. Mr Pearce was very proud of the girls’ football performance, team spirit and sporting attitude. Well done girls: Poppy, Harriet, Lucy, Arabella, Sukhmani, Danielle, Scarlett and Frances, we are all proud of you.


Suspension of inter-school events.


Owing to the current situation, the decision has been made by Streetly School to suspend all after-school competition.


"Understandably we have received a number of emails from Schools withdrawing from upcoming events. With this in mind and in line with our own Schools decision to cancel all extra curricular activities, we have taken the decision to suspend all upcoming inter School competitions until further notice.


The events currently affected are as follows;


-Girls year 5/6 Football - Tuesday 17th March

-Walsall Swimming Finals- Thursday 19th March

-Year 3/4 Football League- Thursday 19th March

-Tri Golf Festival- Monday 23rd March

-Tag Rugby- Tuesday 24th March

-Year 3/4 Football League- Thursday 26th March

-Walsall Gymnastics- Monday 30th March 

-Year 3/4 Football League- Thursday 2nd April

(Taking us up until Easter)


As you can imagine, this is not a decision that has been made lightly, but with this unique situation and the way it is continually changing, we feel it best to make the call now. Ideally we would like to rearrange as many of these competitions as possible but with such a busy School Games calendar anyway this may not be possible but something we will look at going forward. 


Thank you for your support

Mr Sanders

After a very strong year in PE, Health and Sport at Blackwood, we are hoping that this trend will continue.


Once again we hope to have a packed calendar of opportunities both in and outside of school hours...

Thank you once again to Mr Agnew, who continues to support us this year, both during curriculum time across the key stages and with his after-school clubs.  The West Bromwich Foundation will also be with us again, providing curriculum support and training the Football team.


Last - but by no means least - thank you in advance to all the teachers giving up their time to support the school in healthy activities.

Thank you, every body, for all of your hard work in the area of PE and health this year...


After success in the local Streetly cricket competition, we followed this up with further success in the Walsall area final several weeks later.  After further triumph, we went through to the County Championship finals day at Cannock CC on Wednesday 27th June.

The group stages were hotly contended against Christchurch (Stoke), The Willows (Stoke) and Greysbrooke (Shenstone).  After one loss and 2 victories, we waited patiently to see if we would progress as best 2nd place - and we did.

A twist of fate put us up against Oakridge (Stafford), whom we lost to by ONE RUN in last years final.  After a closely fought match and some excellent fielding and bowling on our behalf, we were left to face Christchurch in the final - the team we had lost to in the group stages. 

Choosing to field first, we kept their score down to and excellent 219, leaving us needing cool heads to give away nothing silly.  With several balls to go, we surpassed their target and finished the game 14 runs ahead to become CHAMPIONS!!!!


On behalf of the school - I would like to thank the children for an amazing display of skill and teamwork over the course of the 3 tournaments.  They were a credit to the school and we are all very proud.  Well done to Will, Dan, Joe, Jeevan, Joshua, Ben, Jamie, Rajan, Sinai and Tom.




A huge well done to the Year 5/6 football team, who finished the season unbeaten (and only 4 goals conceded)  and Champions of Walsall!

After 6 games unbeaten in the league, the children went into the area finals full of confidence at Walsall's Bescot Stadium.

After a 100% record in their group:

2-0 vs King Charles

1-0 vs Whetstone

3-1 vs Blue Coat

6-0 vs Bloxwich

3-0 vs Holy Trinity


... the team met Leighswood in the final.  With the game level at full time, penalties beckoned, with Blackwood scoring 2 with no reply and coming out victorious!


A huge thank you to the team for their brilliant efforts and a massive thank you to all the parents and staff who have supported them along the way.

Recent Sporting News


Well done to children in Year 3 and 4, who took part in an after school Tennis competition where we secured two second places finishes.

Sport relief 2018


The total amount raised, is still being clarified but currently stands (at 20.4.18)



- with money still coming in!  


On behalf of the school, thank you so much for contributing to such a worthwhile cause.


Well done to the Year 5 and 6 football team, who keep marching on!  Last night the team made it six out of six, with an 8 - 0 win over Walsall Wood in very hot conditions.  Goals from Pierce (2) Joe (3) Bradley (1) Sian (1) and Dan (1), meant we sit top of the league by 4 points with a game to play.  Regardless of the last result, the team will be going on to play at the Walsall finals, at the Bescot Stadium, on 24th May - well done!

Sport Relief 2018


Thank you to everyone across the school for taking part in last Friday's Sport Relief.  We skipped, ran, 'hula'd' and danced in support of a very worthwhile cause.

Not only did we raise awareness for why we raise the money, we also got active in our classrooms, which is great for the children's learning.



On the 27th January the children took part in the West Midlands floor and vault competition. We entered one mix team and two all girl teams from Blackwood.

The girls had to perform an individual 60 second floor routine to music and the boys had to perform an individual floor routine, ensuring they traveled around the 12m floor area.

The children also had to vault over a 1m 10cm vault.


We were the only new school that entered this year and we competed against actual gymnastic clubs as well as other school teams.

We train for just 45 minutes a week at Blackwood and the children and parents supported the school by attending extra training sessions.


The following children competed:


Lois, Talia, Jenna, Aavni

Emily, Olivia, Rachael, Lily, Keeley

Olivia, Madison, Jack, Joe, Si


The mix team came 3rd overall in their category.  Both all girls teams came in the top half of their category.

The children all want to compete again next year and even try the Trio Milano competition. They will need to work together and develop their team skills even further for this competition as there will be lifts to demonstrate and hold.


Well done to everyone involved!


Football Results 2017/2018



Great result to begin the league, with a 3 - 0 home victory against Delves.



An excellent 9 - 0 victory away at County Bridge, which included four goals each for Joe and Pierce.



The team continued their unbeaten start to the season, with a hard-fought, 3-1 home victory against Lower Farm.  Scorers were three, first-half goals from Charlie, Will and Joe. 



Our final match before the winter break, against Leighswood, ended on a chilly evening at Streetly School under the flood lights.  Despite falling behind twice (against the run of play), goals from Joe (x2) and Bradley sealed a valuable 3-2 win.  Meaning we finish with a 100% record from our first 4 games.  Well done Team Blackwood! 



After the winter break, we began the second have of the season with a tricky away game against a very resolute Whetstone side.  After a goalless first half, the team stepped-up a gear and the goals finally came.  The first was a lovely poachers goal by Charlie after the keeper had saved a long-range effort, followed by a lovely turn and first time finish from outside the area by Bradley.  It all finished 2 - 0, to continue our undefeated run of 5 wins from 5.  Excellent stuff, boys!!



Well done to the Year 3 and 4 girls footballers, who used the skills and knowledge from their after school club, to take part in a tournament at Streetly School.  Great fun was had by all and it was a great learning experience for the girls, as well as an opportunity to represent the school.  Many thanks to Mr Sanders (from Streetly) and Mr Smith for getting them prepared.



Well done to the 18 Year 5 and 6 boys and girls, that attended the annual Sportshall Athletics competition at Streetly Secondary School.  They took part in several disciplines, such as: relay, long jump, triple jump and javelin.  Great fun was had by all.




A big well done and thank you to the Year 5 and 6 boys and girls, who took part in the Streetly School swimming gala yesterday evening. The children took part in individual races in: freestyle, backstroke, breast stroke and butterfly, as well as freestyle and medley relay.  The races were hard-fought and the children showed excellent technique and determination to finish 2nd overall.  So well done to: Josh, Si, Josh, Ben, Luke, Tom and Lily, Emily, Olivia, Maddie, Jenna and Talia.

School Sports Committee


This year will mark the beginning of our first Sports Committee.  Children in Years 3 to 5 will work with the Year 6 sports leaders (along with Mr Pearce and Mr Smith) to help raise the profile of Health and Sport in school.  This will be through organising house activities, acting as learning ambassadors in PE lessons and coming up with new ways of getting our school healthy!
