When children start at Blue Coat, they will be completing their final year of the Foundation Stage. The Foundation Stage curriculum promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the foundation for good progress through school and life.
We make every effort to make the transition from pre-school, where they will have begun their learning journey, to school as easy as possible. We liaise closely with staff in their pre-school settings to ensure they have a smooth and happy start at Blue Coat.
We are very lucky here in Class Discovery to be able to share your children’s first year in school with them. All of the adults are committed to making every day exciting and full of fun and learning as they support the children in the next steps of their learning journey.
Our aim at Bluecoat is that every child makes outstanding progress and no child gets left behind; we want to provide a secure foundation through providing learning and development opportunities that are planned around the needs and interests of each individual child. Central to this is the partnership between the Early Years team and parents and/or carers ensuring that each child has equality of opportunity and that every child is included and supported.
