Head Teacher Mrs Noreen Black

Mrs Black 300x269

 Hi I'm Mrs Black.

This is my fourth year of being the Head Teacher of such a fantastic school. 

My vision for Blacklaw Primary School is a school where parents want to send their children, pupils want to learn and where teachers wish to teach.

I am very proud of my pupils and staff in their determination to ensure that the high standards, which are a feature of Blacklaw, are maintained and extended. 

Although my job keeps me extremely busy, I enjoy going to the movies, reading books and taking my dog for long walks.




Acting Depute Head Teacher Mrs Speirs

Hi I'm Mrs Speirs.

I have been part of the fantastic Blacklaw team for over five years now and I just love working with all the pupils, parents and staff who are part of our school community.

Prior to becoming a teacher I studied Environmental Science and Outdoor Education, hence my passion for outdoor learning (and play) of any kind!

Although I don't have a lot of it, all of my spare time is spent playing with my two year old son and going on mini family adventures around Scotland.

If there is any advice that I try to live my life by, it would be that of Shakespeare: 'To thine own self be true'.
