Headteacher's Welcome


Welcome to Blackfell Primary School


Welcome  to our school website. I am very proud to be able to share with you the wonderful opportunities and curriculum we provide at Blackfell Primary School. 

As Headteacher, I am extremely proud of our school and our many achievements. Our school is a vibrant place where children are extremely enthusiastic and motivated to learn. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and have the opportunities that are relevant to their needs now and in the future. We encourage  our children to take on our values and 5Rs of relationships, resilience, resourcefulness, risk taking and reflection throughout their time in school. I am supported by an enthusiastic and dedicated staff and governor team. Together we work in partnership with parent/carers, the local community and other local schools for the benefit of all children.

We care for every child in our school and aim to give them the very best possible experiences to prepare them for adulthood.

We are very proud to have achieved the Platinum Anti bullying Charter Mark, Mental Health Bronze Charter Mark, Gold Active Sports Mark and Silver Arts Mark Award.

Through our engaging curriculum. we ensure that children can foster a thirst and passion for learning that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe that the children receive a well-rounded curriculum, where individual talents are nurtured. We offer children a vast range of opportunities to develop new skills and interests to flourish and succeed. 


The enthusiastic and committed team here at Blackfell, have high expectations of all

children and we believe that everyone can experience success. We are continuously

developing the school environment and curriculum to provide the best possible

experiences for all of our children and to ensure that their time with us is both

enjoyable and worthwhile. Please take a look at our class pages to show the curriculum on offer to our children.


In our most recent OFSTED inspection, (November 2021), 

Blackfell  continues to be a good school.  

 I am committed to making sure our school strives for excellence and look to

building on our strengths to date.


We look forward

to working in partnership with you to make a positive impact on the lives of families and

children within our community.


I hope you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find any information you are

looking for. If you would like to visit our school first hand, please contact the school office to arrange a visit and I would be delighted to show you what makes Blackfell Primary School such an exceptional place to learn.
