Welcome to our School!
‘Small School, Big Opportunities’
On behalf of all the pupils, staff and governors of Blacklow Brow CP School, I would like to extend to you a warm welcome to our website; thank you for taking the time to visit us online.
I hope that you will find all the information you require to provide you with an understanding of our school ethos. If you are considering sending your child to Blacklow Brow CP school, please ring the school office for an appointment and I or a member of my staff will be happy to give you a tour of the school.
‘Every child has a spark in him/her. It is the responsibility of the people and institutions around each child to find out what would ignite that spark.’
Howard Gardner (Professor of Psychology, Harvard University)
This quote by Howard Gardner is proudly displayed inside the school reception area. At Blacklow we believe that every one of our pupils has an individual talent and the potential to succeed. Through our teaching and our exciting, challenging curriculum, we will endeavour to find that “spark” and do all that we can to make it shine very brightly.
We allow individuality in each pupil to flourish through a happy, secure and stimulating environment. At Blacklow Brow CP school all pupils are given the best opportunity to achieve their full potential and to develop responsibility, self esteem, tolerance and respect for all. Our pupils are encouraged to have high aspirations and to be the best that they can be. On daily basis, we encourage our pupils to believe in values such as:
The Rule of Law
Respect and Tolerance for those of Different Beliefs or Faiths
Tolerance and Respectfulness of Others
Ensuring the Saftey of Ourselves and Others
Treating One Another with Dignity and Respect
To Express Personal Beliefs that Don’t Break any Rules
We pride ourselves in having strong partnerships with parents, local primary and secondary schools and the wider school community and have established a reputation as being a caring and extremely high achieving school.
I hope you enjoy navigating this site but should you wish to find out more then please contact the school office to arrange a visit. Furthermore, if you wish any paper copies of the information on this website, we will be happy to provide this free of charge.
