Heads Blog

Week beginning Monday 3rd January 2022

Welcome back all! It has been lovely to welcome all the children back this week and despite the initial shock to the system of getting back into the swing of learning and school routines, the children are back to their best. Both classes have a history dominate focus in their learning and we will update the class blogs with more information about the work and how you can support at home next week.

Welcome to Mrs Carr (Miss Chadwick):
Today (Friday) Mrs Carr (Formerly Miss Chadwick) has joined our lovely school community. The children have been very excited to meet her and we are looking forward to quality teaching she'll bring to our school and the excellent opportunity for tuition for small groups and individuals over the coming terms. I know you will all make her feel welcome.

After school clubs:
This 1/2 term we have a Pilates club for KS1 after school on a Tuesday (Please email Mrs Pengelly if you would like your child to sign up for this club. Pilates will start Tuesday 18th January until 1/2 term (3.15-4.00pm). On Tuesdays and Thursdays Y6 will have a revision club for preparing further for end of Key Stage 2 Assessments.

You do not need me to mention that Covid-19 is still prevalent both locally and nationally. As guidance changes, we will update you; and we will endeavour to give the children best normal learning experiences possible. Staff are lateral flow testing regularly over the week and classrooms have carbon dioxide monitors to help indicate when better ventilation is required.

Head Teacher awards: Emily S and Lowen M
Star of the week: Jack S and Lerryn

As always, thank you for being such a positive and supportive parent community. The children thrive with all the support that they have around them and we as a school really appreciate it. Have a lovely weekend.

Blisland School was built in 1880 and serves the village of Blisland and surrounding countryside area. Blisland School is located just outside the beautiful village of Blisland in a hamlet, named Waterloo, on the very edge of Bodmin Moor.

The school is situated only a mile from the A30 and is five miles from the nearest town of Bodmin, bordered to the north by St Breward parish; to the west by St Mabyn and Helland parishes; to the south by Cardinham, Warleggan and St Neot parishes and to the northeast by Altarnun parish. Matt Avery, Head of School.

Blisland School has a nursery which caters for children from the start of the term of their third birthday. There is one infant class and one junior class, all staffed by caring outstanding practitioners. We have three playgrounds and a field. We regularly visit Forest School with the children and believe that outdoor learning is key to children's wider development. All children have access to laptops and ipads.

In December 2011, Ofsted inspected Blisland School and recognised the school as Outstanding. The Ofsted inspection team said, "The school is a happy place. Through the strong family atmosphere which permeates the school, pupils learn to take very good care of each other. As a result of excellent teaching throughout the school, pupils achieve very well and attain significantly above average by the end of Year 6".

Blisland School is a very special place offering a unique, quality education.

Matt Avery, Head of School.
