Blackshaw Moor CofE First School caters for pupils aged between 3 and 9 years. Many of our pupils come from Blackshaw Moor and the villages of Thorncliffe, Meerbrook and Upperhulme. There are several pupils who travel in from Flash and Leek.
The school is set in a beautiful location between the Roaches on the edge of the Peak District National Park and Tittesworth Reservoir among the rolling hills of the Staffordshire Moorlands. The school has hard working, dedicated teachers who are highly experienced in teaching mixed age, mixed ability classes and who are committed to ensuring that each child can flourish and reach their full potential both academically and socially.
We provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment and pride ourselves on the family atmosphere and the effective working relationships between pupils and teachers which enable pupils to develop the skills, knowledge, attitudes and values necessary to build a successful future.
We are happy to welcome visitors and parents of prospective pupils to our school to meet the staff and pupils and see what we have to offer.
“Working together in God’s love for the benefit of all”
A prayer written by a child age 5:
Please God and Jesus, look after the children and everyone, Amen
At Blackshaw Moor Church of England First School we value the whole child. We aim to offer our children a creative, enriching and fulfilling learning journey enabling all to flourish. We aim to develop strong links with our local community whilst preparing our children to be good global citizens. Our school values and Christian distinctiveness underpins all that we are and do.
We are an inclusive school where all children have the opportunity to participate fully in school life and have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, regardless of academic ability, religion, physical ability, gender or ethnic origin. All children are valued, whatever needs they have, and we aim to create an environment within our school which will enable all pupils to learn to the best of their ability.
