Blisland Primary Academy - An Outstanding School (Ofsted 2011)
Blisland Academy was built in 1880 and serves the village of Blisland and surrounding countryside area. It 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 Academy has a nursery which caters at present for children from the start of the term of their third birthday, although from September we will be accepting children from the age of two-and-a-half 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 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".
In 2012, the school federated with St Cleer Primary School, and has a joint governing body.
Blisland Academy is a very special place offering a unique, quality education.
Please feel free to come and see our wonderful school and fantastic children; you will receive a very warm welcome!
