blackwell first school bromsgrove 4Blackwell First School was inspected by OfSTED in December 2023. You can read our report on the OfSTED website. The link to DfE data held on the school can be accessed through this link https://www.gov.uk/school-performance-tables

OfSTED main findings included:

"Pupils attend this warm, caring and nurturing school eagerly. They are keen to learn, and the excellent behaviour of all pupils means they can do so without interruption. They behave exceptionally well in lessons, when moving around the immaculately kept buildings and at playtimes. The school has developed an atmosphere where all pupils show a huge level of respect for each other. This is modelled for them by the committed, kind and dedicated staff."

"The school has high expectations that all pupils... achieve highly and work to the best of their ability. This high ambition is realised particularly well in reading, writing and mathematics. This begins in the early years where children get off to an excellent start in a highly stimulating setting."

"The school provides an exceptional personal development offer for pupils. They learn that it is never acceptable to treat people differently because of how they look, what they believe or difficulties they might face."

"The school is held in extremely high regard in the community. Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the education, care and offer their children receive."

    ...we are so happy with our children's progress... (Parent comment)

We continue to be inspected by external inspections each year and are pleased to say that on our most recent external school reviews, the school self evaluation was validated by two separate reviews (2023). An external review of Governance and the awarding of an Early Years Quality Mark (2021) also outlined the strong practice at the school. These reports are the most up to date and accurate evaluation of the school's performance.
