Welcome to Blackwood Primary School!
We are a large school with 3 classes in each year group from Reception to Year 6, plus a 78 place nursery. We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.
Here at Blackwood, we aim to provide a caring, safe, secure and stimulating learning environment where learning is irresistible! Each child is valued, respected and encouraged to become an independent, self-confident learner who is fully engaged and involved in their education.
We believe that positive partnerships between parents, children and our school staff is important and is key to a successful education for each child. Good communication helps this partnertship and our new website has been designed to be easy to navigate and over time, increasingly informative.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to leave comments in the Guestbook, or contact the school directly with any queries you may have. If you think the website would be enhanced by adding more information, please contact us and tell us what else you think would be good to include.
Passion for learning, education for life
At Blackwood School we strive to instil in our children a love of learning which will extend beyond their years of compulsory education and enrich the rest of their lives. Whilst with us, we endeavour to pinpoint the learning needs of each child and provide them with lessons which will help them to meet those next steps in their learning and progress successfully along their learning path. To enthuse our children we choose topics which will surprise, excite and appeal to their sense of curiosity.
However, education at Blackwood is more than that…
We aspire to develop our children to be rounded individuals, brimming with spirit, energy and a zest for life. At Blackwood School our children learn the importance of manners, to respect others and to be tolerant of the views of others, to work together, to care for each other and to be confident in themselves and their abilities.
We value each of our children for their individuality and the contribution that they make to our school family. Being a pupil at Blackwood School is not just about a successful, academic primary education it is about acquiring the key skills and qualities which are the foundation for a happy and successful life. As we say to our leavers at the end of year 6, “Once a Blackwood child always a Blackwood child.”
Thank you for visiting!
