Welcome to Blackwater CP School
Blackwater School was built in 1877 and serves the village of Blackwater and surrounding areas. The school comprises a nursery which caters for children from 3 years old and runs between 8.45 - 1.15 daily and is fully integrated with our Reception Class. We also have another infant class and 2 junior classes, all staffed by caring, outstanding practitioners. In total, we have around 130 children. Our outside space is stunning- we have a large playground, huge field, a wild area and an outside classroom. All of our ICT equipment is wireless and mobile and we run both Apple and Windows platforms. Please feel free to come and see our lovely school and wonderful children. Our recent highly successful OFSTED report gave rise to our new ethos of RAISE Blackwater, where we try and help children move towards the attributes and qualities below: Resilient Respect Achieve Aspire Independent Individual Standards Sensitive Enriching Experimental.

Parking – Please can I remind parents of the need to park and drive considerately, not to block entry and exit points, and above all to ensure the safety of our children. I have asked the community police to attend again in the new year.
