Welcome to Blakehill
On behalf of all staff, governors and our children, we would like to welcome you to Blakehill Primary School.
Our School Mission Statement is,
‘ Together We Can’
This is paramount to the ethos of Blakehill where everyone shares the commitment of promoting the safeguarding, wellbeing and achievement of all our children.
We are a two-form entry school that provides and values positivity, achievement and teamwork. We create an exciting curriculum with an extensive range of learning opportunities, all of which makes Blakehill a fantastic place to work and learn.
Our recent Ofsted inspection in February 2019 recognised:
Highly effective teaching practice… now typical within the school.
A focus on teamwork is evident in all aspects of the school and encapsulated in the school’s motto, ‘together we can’. For example, pupils are adept at supporting one another in lessons.
A focus on working together to achieve high standards has created an atmosphere in which all members of the school community strive to be the best they can be.
Pupils’ emotional and social development is given high priority. This is reflected in the strong relationships which exist between staff and pupils.
The emphasis on making learning both fun and challenging was reflected in all lessons observed during the inspection and is clear in work in pupils’ books over time. Pupils work hard and demonstrate consistently positive attitudes to learning.
As a result of high-quality teaching, by the end of key stage 2, pupils’ outcomes are significantly above the national average for reading, writing and mathematics.
We firmly believe that education should be a partnership between teachers, pupils, parents and carers and that by working together we can help your child reach his/her full potential and the highest possible standards. We encourage you to share the work of the school, so that we can do the very best for your child.
Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
We look forward to working with you and your child.
Mr T Patterson Mrs L Keighley
Executive Headteacher Head of School
