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.

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

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?

glos dioceseFollowing the school's successful SIAMS inspection outcome, we had our annual visit by the Bishop's Visitor last week. This is an opportunity designed to celebrate the ongoing work church schools are doing with regard to the development of their Christian distinctiveness and ethos.

photo-151The school was recently inspected under the Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools (SIAMS) framework. The purpose of this inspection is to evaluate the school's Christian 'distinctiveness and effectiveness'. In doing so, the one-day inspection involved a broad cross-section of stakeholders being met to give their views, school achievement data scrutinised, teaching and collective worship observed, leaders interviewed... all with the intention of determining to what degree Blue Coat is having a (positive) impact on its school community, in particular the impact of our core Christian values.
