Children in need: Friday 15th November. Wear your spots or PJs. Any change to raise money for the charity would be gratefully received.


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.

What another wonderful week at Blisland!
We have seen some tremendous work go on this week: Amazing writing from all. Congratulations to those who received headteacher certificates for their amazing writing.

Poppy Appeal:
We will still be selling poppies and other poppy appeal items (key rings, bracelets etc) in the school office next week. Poppies are available for a donation; bands and other items for a minimum of £1.00. On Monday we will take part in the 2-minute silence along with an assembly for remembrance with the children. Children in KS2 have made an amazing piece of art for the remembrance service as the St Protus and St Hyacinth's Church (Blisland Sunday 10th Nov)

Children in Need:
Children in need is on Friday 15th November. The school council have agreed that we would like to dress in either spots or pyjamas. They have also ask that we bring in donations in the form of unwanted change. We will also be decorating and selling biscuits with a spots theme; they will be on sale from 3pm onwards for 50p.

Reading VIPERS - Coming soon:
As you are hopefully aware, we have a big emphasis on reading. We are using something called "Reading VIPERS' to develop knowledge of the skills for reading comprehension. We will soon be sending home VIPERS bookmarks and phonics packs to help with supporting reading at home.

Best wishes, Matt Avery (Head of School)
