Extra measures in place in school due to increased COVID-19 cases
We have put some of our extra precautionary measures back in place in school due to several positive cases. We are doing everything we can to keep all our pupils and families safe.
Here is a letter from our acting head teacher, Mrs Leonard, that was sent home with all pupils on Friday 17th September, to explain more.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask your child’s class teacher.
Green Tree Schools Platinum Award
We are incredibly proud to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious Green Tree Schools Platinum Award by the Woodland Trust for getting involved in green activities including tree planting, visiting local woodland, reducing carbon emissions and being a woodland ambassador. We take every opportunity to bring the great outdoors, wildlife and green issues into the classroom.
Here is our well-deserved certificate (see left), and thank you to our Nursery staff for leading on such an important area in our school.
Back to School September 2021
School opens for all pupils on Monday 6th September 2021. Here is a letter from Acting Head Teacher, Mrs R. Leonard, with lots of useful information for parents about how our school will operate in the new school year.
For all the latest information, please see our ‘Parents – What You Need to Know’ page here.
Musical Success for Blackhall Bluebells
Over the last few weeks, we have explored the story ‘Greta and the Giants.’ The book tells the story of Noble Peace Prize nominee Greta Thunburg, inspiring children to believe that ‘no-one is too small to make a difference.’ The story was promoted as part of Durham’s book festival ‘The little read.’ Durham Music Service were extremely keen to share our musical ‘provocations’ (ideas to provoke a musical response) on their Facebook Live.
Arts Council Award
We are very excited to announce that we have achieved the Artsmark Gold Award, awarded to us by the Arts council of England.
This means that as a school community we have worked together to promote arts and culture in our values and ethos, engaged our children with the arts, embedded a diverse curriculum with lots of cultural opportunities, developed all of our staff and ensured equality and diversity for all.
We are determined to keep building on this success and offer our pupils ever increasing cultural capital.
Thank you to all of our parents, carers, governors and friends of the school – we couldn’t have done it without you! And congratulations to Arts Lead Mrs Sergeant and all of our hard working and inspirational staff team.
