    Blacko Primary School




    Hello from Mrs richards

    Welcome to Blacko Primary

    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.
