“Arguably the most important aim of education is to allow young people to take greater control of their own lives – ‘Personal Empowerment’”
~Dylan William

As a school, this statement has provoked a long list of baffling questions that we require answers to. Why? Because we believe that acting upon the answers will equip Blue Coat pupils to be ready for their futures (our school’s vision).

We’re looking for inquisitive, committed and like-minded learning coaches who are also uneasy about leaving big questions unanswered.

In return, we can offer you a long list of prospects topped by:

-a collaborative teaching experience in an Outstanding Early Years unit -amazing pupils who never fail to make you smile
-fresh, new ideas in becoming a better educator (and leader)
-a valued part in a friendly, collegiate and committed teaching team
-fantastic facilities, beautiful surroundings and easy access from most locations

Don’t dodge the big questions; join us in finding the answers so as to become a better teacher and play a key part in successful and exciting futures.

This is a great time to join and shape a high performing team who will be trialling new baseline materials in an Early Years Foundation Stage Unit in our school. You will be a member of a teaching team working collaboratively for 0.5FTE to support our 30+ Reception entrants.

At both the field event competition at North Nibley and the delayed track event at KLB, we were represented brilliantly by our children, with a great level of success in both.

young writers

In the spring term, many of Blue Coat's aspirational authors submitted their entries to a nationwide short-story competition.These 100-word spooky sagas both thrilled and terrified in equal measure!

Despite the testing word limit, the children crafted their mini sagas skillfully, ensuring that they thought carefully about the purpose of their writing as well as their audience.

qklogoTwo teams of Year 3 and 4 children took part in a Quad Kids competition hosted by KLB on Wednesday 22nd May. 

The children showed great team spirit and were fantastic representatives of Blue Coat because not only did they try their hardest, but they showed great sportsmanship towards all the children from the different schools, cheering them on and encouraging them at every opportunity.

christian aidLast week a giant bronze and silver worm was spotted on the Blue Coat
playground. Don't panic though - it was no child-eating beast!

Indeed, instead of being something which would cause people to scatter in all directions, it was something which brought our school community together.

A sponsored run organised by Blue Coat pupils has raised £592.00 for Water Aid.

Three of our Year 6 girls were inspired to raise money when they noticed water being wasted. Anya P., who had the original idea, said, "My brother was wasting water at home which made me think about people in other countries who don't have the clean water we have".

ArcheryYesterday, a small group of elite Blue Coat archers competed in the Level 2 Primary School Games event at KLB.

As a school, we try to ensure that we compete in a wide range of sports, catering to a wide range of children - those who regularly compete in sport through to those who don't get the opportunity to.
