Thank you for visiting Blackwater CP School...                                      

Welcome to Blackwater CP School

Blackwater School was built in 1877 and serves the village of Blackwater and surrounding countryside hamlets.
The school comprises a nursery which caters for children from 3 years old and runs between 8.45 - 1.15 daily. We also have 2 infant classes and 2 junior classes, all staffed by caring, outstanding practitioners. In total, we have around 120 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 it's fantastic children.

Blackwater Children are Celebrating Outstanding Writing...

A fantastic amount of just over £500 was raised on Sports Relief Day. Many thanks to everyone that took part. 

This year we will be raising money for Sport Relief on Friday 21st March.  

We will be having a non-uniform day on this day (wear red if possible.) Pupils will need to bring £1 to go towards Sport Relief.  

Attached is a sponsorship form to complete a ‘mile on wheels’ at school on 21st March. Pupils will be able to bring any wheels they have at home (roller blades, skateboard, bicycle, scooter) to complete the mile on March 21st. This will either be on the field, on the playground, or a mixture of the two! 

The sponsorship form can be downloaded or please ask at the school office for a hard copy. 

I look forward to, what I hope will be, a fun day raising money for a good cause.

At Blackwater School

We want your child to enjoy reading and develop a love of books. We have researched recommended reading lists that you can use as a guide for choosing suitable books to share with your child.

Take a look at our Literacy page.


Blackwater is a small rural village situated in the parish of St. Agnes between Truro (6miles) and Redruth (4miles) and close to the north coast and its sandy beaches (3 miles).

A Foundation Unit is incorporated within the school for children aged 3-5 years. The Foundation Unit eases the transition between Early Years and the first year of school. Our children get to know school staff really well and are given excellent educational activities.

Blackwater CP School has also achieved Healthy School Accredtation.
