Week beginning 7th June 2021

Thrilled to be all back together

This week, after returning from 1/2 term, we have been able to come back together as a whole school for the 1st time properly in over a year. It was great to see how excited the children were to become one bubble. The children loved being with one another and I know this has been a big moment for them. We used Thursday as an opportunity to have our 1st whole school assembly together in our new cabin which was built for moments such as these. It was fantastic and heart-warming to see how happy and genuine the children are for the successes and achievements of one another.

Over the 1/2 term, myself and our staff staff worked in school to organize the classrooms to be better suited for us being one bubble. We also have started decorating and reorganizing our library space now it is easier for children to freely take books out. We look forward to utilizing this space. A huge thank you to Mrs Pearce, Mrs Harrison, Mrs Powdrill and Miss Lenton, who gave up their time to make our classrooms and Library feel and look special. 

After school clubs on Fridays:
From Friday 18th June, we will be able to offer 2 afterschool clubs at no cost. For KS1 and reception, Mrs Blackburn will be delivering a mini-Olympics club running from 3pm until 3.45pm. For KS2, I will be running a netball and basketball club, also running from 3pm until 3.45pm. During Swimming (Friday 25th June and Friday 2nd July) there will be no netball or basketball and KS1 may find it tricky to get back in time for the mini-Olympics club on these two sessions. If your child is interested in attending one these clubs, please email Mrs Hawker: secretary@blislandprimary.co.uk

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.
