Headteacher's welcome- Kati-Anne Roughley

Welcome to E-Act Blackley Academy!

At E-Act Blackley we believe that our role is to equip children with the life skills that they will need to be successful, both now and in the future. We believe that children deserve the highest standard of education and we work hard to deliver such high standards every day in a safe and secrure environment.

We offer a variety of experiences to our children from working with our artist in residence to sports coaching with Manchester City. We run cookery clubs, craft clubs, coding clubs and many more.

Our aim is that all children will leave the academy at 11 with good SATs results, but most importantly, with a lifelong love of learning. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like any more information, we look forward to hearing from you!

Regional Educational Director - Kathy Allen

We opened in 2012 with ambitious plans to raise attainment, improve our Ofsted grading, to attract more pupils and to develop the facilities at Blackley Academy. I am delighted to report positive outcomes in all these areas and in January 2014 we were judged by Ofsted as ‘Good’.

Safeguarding Information about the Internet

Dear parents,
I am writing to you on the advice of the Police about an app named MUSICAL.LY which I am aware a number of children will have access to. Whilst this app is totally innocent and a creative app for children to use, it does have the facility to connect to other people throughout the world. We have today been advised that a girl of 9 years of age from Salford has been contacted by a man using this app and a process of grooming had started. Fortunately the parents were vigilant in checking the phone and have been able to report the matter to the police. We regularly remind children never to communicate with anyone online that they do not know personally and will be repeating this message again this week.  Could I ask you to also reiterate this advice strongly with your child.
