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.
The children at Blisland Primary Academy have been visiting Bodmin College gymnasium for their gymnastics lessons this term. Their coach, Paula Deveraux, has remarked how they have grown in confidence through the 3 sessions of apparatus work. Blisland Primary Academy does not have a hall, so it has been wonderful for the children to experience a variety of gymnastics equipment.
One child who was quite scared of heights has conquered her fear and is now able to climb the wall bars. Another surprised all her class mates by whizzing up a rope with no hesitation!
This week, they were improving the quality of their movements, making sure toes and fingers are extended, and sequences are performed well-synchronised. You can see this in the photograph here.
