Welcome to Blackrod Primary School.


We are a highly successful, popular school situated in the north west of Bolton. Ofsted judged our school ‘outstanding’ in every area during their most recent inspection.


Our School featured in the very well received Channel 4 documentary 'The Class of Mum and Dad' which followed a group of our parents who returned to School for a half term to experience at first hand the education their children receive.

 We believe that the key to our success is a love of life and learning within a school where children feel cared for, supported, respected and safe.
We always strive for academic excellence and provide an exciting and enriching curriculum for all our children. We help every child  fulfil their potential and we celebrate everyone’s uniqueness and the gifts and talents they have. Every child is precious and it is a privilege to play a part in their development. We aim to provide them with the skills, knowledge, resilience, enthusiasm and life skills which will equip them to lead a rewarding and happy life.
Our staff are high performing professionals who go above and beyond expectations to make a difference to pupils’ lives.
We work closely with our parents and the wider community.
Blackrod is a National Support School providing professional guidance to schools across the Greater Manchester region.
We pride ourselves on our educational links and we are strategic partners with a range of schools which helps ensure that our own practice remains outstanding and continually challenges our thinking and practice.
We hope that by visiting this site you gain a flavour of just what our school has to offer.
Thank You,
Ian A Dryburgh. M.Ed. NLE.
