Opening up for 2012

Previously, we've taken quite a traditional model of showing prospective parents around the school with the Headteacher on a short tour. Whilst this has some distinct benefits for parents, this year the Senior Leadership Team decided to broaden prospective parents' and pupils' experience of blue Coat by holding open mornings.

The format of the mornings meant that they could meet more teachers and leaders, speak to a group of our seasoned Year 6's, take a look at our new website and resources, peruse Reception learning in books and photos as well as participate in a tour of the school and its grounds. Oh, and there were hot drinks and biscuits too! 

Feedback was positive and with a turn out of over 50 families we were satisfied that we'd gone some way to help parents in one of their most important life decisions.

A big thank you to all members of the SLT (Mrs Nelson, Mr Clements, Mr Bailey and Mrs Buckley), Mrs Davies, our brilliant group of Year 6's, and all of the parents who could spare some time to visit us.
