    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.

      What a lovely end to the week in class 3! The children were creating pointillism paintings, using colour and stippling to ensure they used pointillism techniques. Some amazing and bright paintings! @ThePennineTrust

      Class 4 have designed and made their own parachutes this afternoon- we spent the afternoon investigating air resistance and questioned if surface area would affect the time it took to fall. @ThePennineTrust #Collaboration

      Words can’t describe how proud we are of our year 6’s. They gave these SATS their all. We celebrated our last test today with a popcorn party and the morning on the Rec for some fun and football. #superstars #classof2024 @ThePennineTrust

      Class 1 finished their wonderful week off at @WhitehoughOC with a morning in the woods. First we worked in teams to build our own dens! We had to use natural resources to help us make fences, places to cook our food and ensure our den's were waterproof. @ThePennineTrust #EYFS

      Class 1 have had another super day at @WhitehoughOC. First we went on a woodland walk. We found lots of unusual plants and nature. We also used our senses to feel, smell and hear all that was around us. We also have to be brave and cross some bridges. @ThePennineTrust #EYFS

      Class 1 also went on a hunt for minibeasts! We found many different bugs, using our knowledge of minibeasts to find their hiding places. We collected nature & minibeasts and created beautiful observational drawings! Along the way, we splashed in lots of puddles. @ThePennineTrust

      The rain didn't spoil our fun today at @WhitehoughOC this morning. The children enjoyed an adventure on the low ropes course. It was wonderful to see Class 1 being such collaborative and caring learners. They loved encouraging each other to be brave. @ThePennineTrust #EYFS
