Week beginning 11th May 2020


Home learning:
Thank you to all who have sent different aspects of their home learning in to us. We do like hearing from you and knowing that you are all safe and well. Please remember to take part in any aspects of learning you have the time and means to do. This week for KS2 we will set some interesting challenges for showing and completing your work.

Phone Calls:
It has been great for our staff to speak to most of you last week. If you have n't had your phone call yet (I know I have 3 still to make), don't worry you have not been forgotten, your teachers have been quite busy and will call you this week.

Schools' Phased Reopening - 1st June:
We are sure that like us, you have lots of questions following the Prime Minister's announcement last night. At the moment, for us in school, there is no change to the guidance, so we will be continuing to operate as we have over the last few weeks. We will continue to provide essential child care for key worker families as well as vulnerable children (this is happening through hubs - our hub is Wadebridge Primary Academy). The message remains that it is safer to stay at home. We appreciate this is a confusing time. If you require information about access to child care through our hubs, please email. I completely understand that some of you may be feeling anxious about these phased change but rest assured we will always make the right decisions for the children's and your wellbeing - the reopening of schools are still subject to review. Once we have assessed the new information and reviewed the guidance on how to manage a safe, phased return we will of course keep you informed.
Below is detail for parents with questions and answers - this information is subject to change:

Best wishes,

Matt Avery

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.
