Blakesley Hall is a popular school which was founded in 1959
between Richmond Road and Blakesley Road and is bounded by
parkland and domestic gardens.
In 2008 the school underwent a total rebuild as part of the second phase of the
Birmingham Schools PFI Project. It is now a modern three form entry school and caters
for over 500 boys and girls aged between 4 and 11 years.
The school has 21 classrooms and a wide range of modern facilities. There are two large
halls which are used for assemblies, physical education and also school lunches. These
are cooked in the school’s own kitchen and children have a choice of healthy meals.
Recent changes to the PAN mean that we currently admit 60 pupils in Reception but we
have 90 pupils in Years 2 – 6, in addition to a 15 place Resource Base. Each Reception
class has a qualified teaching assistant who works closely with the class teacher.
Blakesley Hall Primary School is a community of learners.
Our mission is to enable every
child to be: safe, secure and successful:
- Safe: We take all reasonable steps to ensure the physical safety of all members of
the school community.
- Secure: Our curriculum and our pastoral support programme are designed to make
out school an emotionally supportive environment for all.
- Successful: We work together so that all members of the school community can
achieve their individual academic potential.
