Welcome to Bligh Primary School.

A message from Christian Markham, Head Teacher.

It is my absolute pleasure to welcome you to Bligh Primary School.

At Bligh Primary School we know that it is our responsibility to give your children the greatest range of opportunities possible. We believe that providing the valuable building blocks to learning will enable your children to grow into successful adults and valuable members of our community. More than anything we want to give your children the opportunity to make positive choices about their futures, to shape their own destinies, to be what they want to be!

There is no greater gift than that of choice.

Bligh Primary School is a school with HEART. We believe in Honesty, Empathy, Achievement, Resilience and Teamwork. These values are celebrated throughout the school and apply to both children and adults.

We believe that children learn best when they feel happy, safe and are actively involved in their learning. We are a school which believes in learning by doing. We encourage our children to learn as much as possible in a practical way to reinforce formal learning.

We expect our children to leave Bligh Primary at the end of year 6 being excellent communicators of their learning and emotions, valuable team players and experts of their local community.

I hope you find this website useful and l look forward to being part of your learning journey.

Mr C P Markham
Head Teacher
