Welcome from the Chair of Governors

Welcome to our school governor section of the school website. We are continuously developing our website to provide as much information as possible to assist parents and carers, children and others find the answers to their questions.

I have been elected by the Governing Body as Chair of Governors for a fifth term of two years for 2021-23.  I'm delighted to be helping lead this school's continuing success year on year.
We have many priorities in ensuring our children not just learn academically, but understand the world around them, grow in confidence and develop into young citizens of our city.
Recovery in terms of academic achievement in the aftermath of the pandemic is proving challenging, a collaborative approach between school and home is more important than ever to ensure that children are supported to learn at home with their parents and carers. Our website will allow children, parents and teachers to collaborate online providing further learning opportunities to support our children’s day-to-day classroom activities.
Blakehill has always experienced incredible support from parents and the local community having a large governing body who’s primary driving force is to provide the children who attend Blakehill the an environment to enjoy a safe and positive experience.
I sincerely look forward to seeing Blakehill continue in its success of educating our children.
