Blacko Primary School is a good school with an excellent local reputation. We are set in a rural position in East Lancashire. From all directions, we have views of rolling countryside, with Pendle Hill in the distance. The village of Blacko is well known throughout Lancashire because of Blacko Tower. It was built at around the same time as the school and is a focal point for miles around.
Our building is over 100 years old and is a traditional village school. Children of 5 years of age gain a great deal from close contact with older children and our small staff are committed to the development of a happy, thriving school.
There are 104 pupils on roll and we are pleased to be continually oversubscribed.
Our ethos is to develop young people with creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others. We are proud of our dedicated and committed staff who strive to create confident and well-educated children with our core values; Be Ambitious, Be Collaborative, Be Respectful, at their centre. Nurtured in an environment where they will have the opportunity to create lasting memories, giving them the confidence to reach their full potential, from tiny seeds, mighty trees will grow.
Our website has been designed to provide visitors with a wealth of information. However, a visit in person is the best way of getting a real and truer sense of our outstanding school. We welcome you to talk with our staff and pupils and find out just how outstanding we are.
Some final pictures from our amazing trip to Quarry Bank Mill. Weâ€™ve all had such an amazing day and had great experiences learning about what life was like for children here during the Industrial Revolution. https://t.co/jZjs4Ab5iP
Class 2 have begun their artist exploration page on Picasso and his self portraits. We have explored pattern, shading and a variety of his self portraits over the years. We spoke about how the different portraits made us feel and what we liked about them. @ThePennineTrust https://t.co/hwROofqxbF
Now weâ€™re learning what it was like working in the mills, weâ€™ve realised what a dangerous place it was to work. Children worked bare foot and had to crawl under the looms to tidy up the loose cotton. Girls also got paid half as much as boys for doing the same job!! @QuarryBankNT https://t.co/pu6mICc981 https://t.co/lq5JJcIN6R
Class 1 began their @WhiteRoseEd matching and sorting unit. We have loved playing matching games using our Autumn cards. The children even created a â€˜matchâ€™ table. We have also been busy in the building area creating towers which are the same and different. @ThePennineTrust https://t.co/zfqweVepq1
Weâ€™ve had a great morning so far, Class 3 have had a tour of Quarry Bank Mill and are now learning what life would be like living in the apprentice houseâ€¦ a handful of porridge for breakfast and lunch, bread and milk for tea and 13 hour working days!! @QuarryBankNT https://t.co/t065jPMMtz
