    Blacko Primary School




    Hello from Mrs richards

    Welcome to Blacko Primary

    Blacko School is a Community Primary School which offers primary education to children aged 5 – 11. 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.

    Blacko School has always placed the individual child at the heart of its teaching and learning. We aim to cater for the needs of all our children. 

    Your child begins learning with his or her family. The school comes in later and builds on these foundations, but the family continues to be just as important as before. We want to build a relationship with you which will help your child do as well as he or she can possibly do. We urge you to become closely involved with all stages of your child’s education.

    The best way to get to know our school is to arrange a visit and we'll answer any questions that you may have.

      We're almost at the end of our Science unit on Earth & Space in Class 4. We enjoyed making a model of the Earth, the sun and the moon yesterday, but I wonder if the children can remember why we did it? What did we learn from it? @ThePennineTrust

      Class 1 have been exploring height. We began by comparing the height of objects, we were super at using our new language 'taller' and 'shorter'. We used our new knowledge to order items by height. We were then able to check our estimations by using tape measures. @ThePennineTrust
