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.

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.

Yesterday we spent a sunny afternoon at Bristol Zoo.  We had a polar experience and discovered how animals have adapted to cold environments.  We didn't stroke a penguin but did all get to stroke a very soft chinchilla called Rain.

Today we are exploring the science museum have been finding out about the science of the human body with amazing hands on interactive activities.  This morning we trained to be astronauts by testing exercise equipment to see what we could  use to stay fit in space, testing the absorbency of materials for use in our space nappies.  We also controlled mini canadarms to manoeuvre blocks into stacks and experimented with marshmallows at high and low pressure.  Finally we built our building our own space rockets and tested how well they flew!

We have also been on a grand tour of space in the planetarium.  We chose Saturn, Uranus, Venus and Earth to visit.
