2G’s Class Assembly

2G performed their fantastic assembly today, about the Great Fire of London in 1666! They spoke loud and clear, and everyone learned lots about the disastrous fire in London, many many years ago.

They enjoyed their interesting visit from Alex Fellowes, playing the role of a witness of the great fire, and learned lots of fascinating things from him. 2G  did brilliant in their assembly, as well as having lots of fun telling everyone about their fantastic time.

Safer Internet Day 2015

Next week on Tuesday it is safer internet day!

At Blakehill we talk about E-Safety throughout the year. It is very important that we know how to stay safe while we are online. Throughout the school we will be taking part in some fun activities all about staying safe online.  We won’t just be doing activities we will also be learning how to be safe on the internet. We do this every single year so we don’t forget how important  E-Safety is and how dangerous it can be. Our digital leaders will  be doing an assembly in front of the whole school all about safer internet day.

Keep safe on the internet !

Ofsted visits Blakehill!

On the 15th & 16th of January, Blakehill had visit from Ofsted. They wanted to inspect our school. We were all on our best behaviour (like always) hoping that they would be as impressed with our school as we are.
The report states … “All groups make good progress“, “Pupils make good progress because teaching is good“, “The school’s safeguarding procedures are highly effective“, “Governors know the school well and share the clear vision of senior leaders“, “Behavior of pupils is good. It is a strength of the school and is at times outstanding”
Everyone is so proud of Blakehill! The Ofsted framework has changed alot since 2012 so “Good” is a huge achievement.  We are extremely proud of our school and are very pleased with our report.
