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.

Harvest Festival:
WOW! What amazing children we are lucky to have at Blisland. The harvest festival was a big success: the Food bank were very grateful for your donations and the children were amazing. Thank you all for supporting.

Attendance: It is very important children are at school as often as possible as it will give them the best chance to learn with consistent input. This YEAR'S attendance so far is: 92.1% which is still an improving figure but we really need this to be above 96% to have the best impact on your children's learning. Reminder: We are unable to authorise the majority of absences and persistent absence could result in fines.
Children with 100% attendance at the end of each term will receive a prize!

North Cornwall Book Show:
This week, Years 4,5 and 6 visited the ‘North Cornwall book show’ at St Endellion. The children and staff all came away very inspired after meeting poets, authors and Illustrators - including Martin Brown (The Illustrator of Horrible Histories). I have no doubt this will 

Who were the victorians?
KS1 have been making some brilliant silhouette pictures to look like victorians. I am sure they will be on the class page soon.

Special Place (Log Cabin):
Good News! After a successful bid to the Lottery from Julie Pearce for £10,000, with the help of our amazing PTA and Bridge Schools, we have found the remaining £7,000 to fund a new cabin to be built in our reception and nursery playground as an extra learning, assembly and sports space for the children.

Best wishes, Matt Avery (Head of School)
