This school provides a fresh start for pupils who have previously disengaged from learning. Most pupils arrive disillusioned and often ready to give up on education. They say this school is different because teachers believe in them.

What does Ofsted says about Blackwater Academy?

In accordance to the school's attendance policy, if your child has not arrived to school by 9:15am, an automated text will be sent out to parents stating that their child is not in. This will then be followed on by a call if parents have not replied to the school regarding their child's whereabouts. 

If your child does arrive late, they will be given a late code but will not be put down as absent. 

If your child is sick and will not be attending school, please call Miss Abigail Brookes on 01212380758
