 Welcome to Blackshaw Lane Primary & Nursery School 

Welcome to Blackshaw Lane Primary & Nursery School.  This website is intended to provide you with information about our school. Registering your child here will, I am sure, be the first step towards a very happy and successful education. To find out more talk to our Governors, myself, to parents who already have children at Blackshaw Lane Primary & Nursery School, or simply come and visit us.

Your child’s education is best served when home, school and the community work closely together in partnership.
