2015-01-06 10.22.01 amFirstly, a Happy New Year to you! We started 2015 in school with the staff's third INSET day. The focus? Laying the foundations for developing an exciting and effective school curriculum capable of making our children, as our vision claims,  'future ready'. The renewed school curriculum will be delivered in September 2015 and has high aspirations for all of our pupils.

PC170120...and the result? Well, how about a surprise visit from the big man himself! This afternoon, following a fantastic Christmas dinner in the school hall, our children bopped away in classrooms as the 'Christmas class party' got under way.

However, the dance moves were cut short when Santa Claus, and his very supportive team of PTA helpers, rocked up at classrooms, one by one, to spread festive cheer and give children a small taster (present) ahead of Christmas day.

Designs-for-Kids.-Happy-New-Year-2014The winter weather and volume of recent seasonal festivities haven't stopped our pupils in their determination to achieve. We have several notable mentions to make, all of which conclude a very successful 2014 at Blue Coat.

photo-4Our children put in a 'super hero effort' today for Children In Need 2014, dressing either in onesies or as superheroes whilst raising cash for those who need it most.

Having either flown to school or used powers of teleportation to make it on site, the children donated £1 each for the privilege - all of which will go to the charity. Our Milepost 3 learners engaged their enterprising skills to set up a series of stalls for morning break, offering cakes, treats or the opportunity to win something big and bold. Uptake, as always, was BIG and the children will lead an assembly later this afternoon to hand out prizes and celebrate their fundraising efforts.

Yesterday afternoon saw two 7-a-side teams, comprising of a selection of our Milepost 3 boys, take to the artificial surfaces of Katherine Lady Berkeley's sports centre pitches in the hope of securing a group win to qualify them for the county cup finals.

girls footballLast year, our attention was drawn to a Year 5 girls' football team who performed brilliantly in local competitions aimed at Year 6 teams. We knew they held promise and they've been carrying out some light training work thanks to Mrs Needham's son, a trained coach, Tom Needham, over the last couple of weeks.

Once again, the girls performance proved to be oustanding. Here's a brief match report from Rowen (Team 1) on the experience:

IMG 1662It seems only fitting that when the previous news item bid farewell to our cherished Class of 2014, we now take the opportunity to welcome the new members of our Blue Coat school family - Class of 2021!

IMG 0690aOne church; one school family; one amazing group of Year 6's. Today, we bid 'farewell' to our eldest pride and joy, wishing them every success in their exciting futures. Songs/hymns, orchestral arrangements, memories, readings and buddy presentations of cards and Bibles made for a moving service. We also found time to say goodbye to Mr Jones and Miss Gleeson, both of whom will be missed in September.

IMG 0655Today's celebration worship was a memorable one as England Rugby International, Ben Morgan, decided to drop in and meet our pupils! 

Milepost 2's topic has culminated in a Blue Coat Sports Award shows where sporting personalities were marketed and then voted for by our children. The excitement gathered momentum as the whole school cheered on their choice personalities in each category. Sadly, Usain Bolt, David Beckham and the England Rugby team were unable to make it... or were they?
