About Bligh Primary School (Infants)
Bligh Primary School is part of the Maritime Multi-Academy Trust, an innovative partnership of schools in Greenwich and Kent. Our schools transform through collaboration and an entrepreneurial curriculum which equips children with life skills.
We are thriving two form entry school which has been selected by the DfE to ‘grow’ to a three form entry school due to its good and outstanding statuses. By 2023 Bligh Primary will be a full three form entry school
Our key objective at Bligh Primary School is to equip all our children with the key skills of communication and collaboration as well as being community minded. We expect all our adults to provide the children with first hand experiences, knowledge and the necessary skills to articulate what they have learnt in a clear and informative way. This is developed through our clear teaching and learning focus on communication, community and collaboration.
Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We welcome and celebrate differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by our HEART values. Bligh is a school with HEART. Honesty, Empathy, Achievement, Resilience and Teamwork. We believe that these personal characteristics are essential in forming positive adult lives.
Our community is an essential part of the curriculum, which is why we chose to focus on using the surrounding local area to deepen the children’s understanding, making them experts of their locality throughout their learning journey.
Children leave Bligh with a sense of belonging, the ability to work independently, in pairs or as part of a team in collaboration. They can communicate effectively what they have learnt, gather a wealth of knowledge and skills through all areas of the curriculum. They have a clear understanding and knowledge of the community around them, their place within it and the opportunities it presents.
Finally, we are a school which believes in research-based practice. We believe that teaching is an art which is underpinned by research and best practice. Learning happens best when professionals understand the principles and science of learning.
Working with the children at Bligh Primary School is a privilege. We have a clear understanding of how our children learn and expect this to be evident in all the work we do.
