The Robert Blair Experience

When your child begins their journey at Robert Blair School, they will embark on what we call the ‘Robert Blair Experience’. The children at Robert Blair always come first. You can expect your child to be well taught, well looked after and, in partnership with you, receive the best possible education during their time with us.

Pupils leave us ‘Year 7 ready’.

Our approach to learning is through an enriched, stimulating and engaging Arts centred curriculum which support our pupils to;

  • respond with wonderment and awe
  • be inspired by the world
  • develop increasing confidence and independence
  • demonstrate empathy and understanding
  • drive their own learning
  • be resilient and hard working in their approach
  • be healthy, with a strong sense of community and self-respect
  • experience and develop the skills needed to exercise flexibility in thinking
  • drive ambitious future aspirations
  • embrace their social responsibility
  • understand their impact on others and the potential to change the world around them

We have high aspirations for all our children and staff which is embodied in our strong ethos of care, guidance and support and all stakeholders working together, to ensure that pupils become the best that they can be. Visitors to our community comment on our calm purposeful environment, the warm and welcoming children and staff and the creativity on display throughout the school.

We aim to develop articulate, energized achievers ready for the future. At Robert Blair we ensure our pupils are ready to enter the next stage of their lives with a positive self-image and that they look back on their time with us as an important and engaging one, knowing they are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for personal success and for their transition to secondary School.

Our staff are a dedicated highly skilled and hardworking team – always ensuring that excellence in programme delivery is maintained. The staff welcome parent contact and feedback. Remembering that class time is paramount, an appointment via email, or our school office ensures your concerns are addressed with the attention they deserve.

I am immensely proud to lead such a diverse, energised and positive school community. We look forward to getting to know you and working with you in supporting your child to become the best that they can be as they embrace ‘The Robert Blair Experience’.
