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 Recepetion 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

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.
