Welcome to Blanford Mere Primary School. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
Blanford Mere Primary School is based in Kingswinford. with superb nearby facilities including King George V1 Park, St. Mary’s Church and local businesses which places us at the heart of the community. Our peaceful, safe and spacious grounds offer opportunities for children to both learn and play. We have a state of the art learning resource centre which provides children with the latest technology alongside a well-resourced library. Pupils are encouraged to research and find information using a variety of sources as well as to enjoy quiet moments for children who choose to read for pleasure. We offer exciting curriculum opportunities to foster a lifelong love of learning in our children.
We also support parents by offering a Breakfast Club from 7.30-8.45am and After School Club from 3.15-6.00pm.
We are a community school with delightful children, supportive parents and a hard working team of staff and Governors who work closely together to ensure that children strive to achieve the very best that they can.
We are currently “Number 1” in the league tables of performance for Dudley Schools and are very proud of the achievements of our pupils. In October 2013 we were graded as a “Good” school by Ofsted who commented that “The good behaviour of pupils around the school and in lessons makes a strong contribution to the school’s positive climate for learning. Pupils are independent and display high levels of perseverance and good levels of concentration. They work hard. Pupils work cooperatively and help each other. They are courteous and respectful towards one another”.
We enjoy showing families around school so that they can see school life inaction. The partnership between children, parents and staff is important to us and was recognised by Ofsted who acknowledged that “The school works well with parents and carers. All parents who spoke to inspectors were fulsome in their appreciation of the work of the staff”.
We encourage you to visit and see the school for yourself. Please contact the school office on 01384 818365 to arrange a mutually convenient time.
