Academy Statement

Earlier this year we were notified of an investigation into a teacher employed by Blackburn with Darwen Council at the school between 1972 and 1989. The case concluded yesterday and we share the community’s concern for the victims of these appalling acts which, it has been reported, were committed between 1979 and 1990, when Darwen Vale was run by the local authority. The school transferred from local authority control to our multi-academy trust in December 2014.
