Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to The Blake Church of England School website, I hope it gives you a taster of this very special school.  

The Blake School has a long history of serving the children of the local community with a high- quality education, within a Christian setting. 

In this school ‘Christian setting’ means that during our collective worship times, children will be told that Christians believe that:

·         everyone was made by a loving God who cares about them;

·         there is a purpose to life and a job for everyone in this world that no-one else can do;

·         with God’s help, it is our job to help make the world a better place;

·         the Bible contains a value structure and wisdom for living that brings blessing, whether you have a personal faith or not.

Within this welcoming and inclusive school questions are encouraged and other world views are accepted and celebrated.  Children are expected to respect, challenge and inspire one another and to act courteously and generously towards one another.   

All children at this school are aware that they are unique individuals whose value is intrinsic and not determined by outward success or achievement.  Children, whatever their circumstance or level of need are welcomed, nurtured and enabled to thrive, recognising their part both in the school community and wider society.

Our curriculum, enhanced by trips, visitors, sport, music, arts events and extra-curricular activities is designed to give children every opportunity to become independent engaged learners and to develop and succeed, whatever their passion, skills or interests.

The best way of getting to know this school is to visit us; you will be warmly welcomed.  Please call the school office where one of the school administrators will make the arrangements for you; I look forward to meeting with you and showing you around.
