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.

Week Beginning Monday 2nd December 2019

It's starting feel very Christmasy here at Blisland. The children are full of Christmas cheer, rehearsals for the upcoming Nativity are well on the way and Father Christmas has been visited by our EYFS and Nursery children.

Lanhydrock visit:
Year 1 and 2 children visited Lanhydrock House on Monday for an educational visit linked to their topic "Who were the Victorians". The children had an amazing time, learn lots, survived the bitter temperatures and impressed the general public, who commented on their lovely manner.

Whole school: 92.7% so far this term. It is very important that children are at school as often as possible as it will give them the best chance to learn with consistent input. We really need attendance 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 from the local authority.

Climate Change Music Workshop:
Years 1 to 6 worked with Matt Douglas to finish their song about climate change. The children have composed an amazing song which will be performed in some form at the Eden project. We will update you with any news about it soon.

Live Draw:
KS2 take part in a Christmas "live Draw" via the internet with the illustrator of 'The Christmasaurus'. The Children's Drawings were amazing.
