Head Teacher’s Welcome


Welcome to Blue Coat School

 

At Blue Coat Church of England School, our vision is “Living life in all its fullness”. We exist to equip our students to live life in all its fullness by providing excellent education which is distinctively Christian and inclusive of all. At the heart of this education are the values of Care, Hard Work, Respect, Integrity andServanthood, working Together for the good of all individuals, the school and wider communities.

 

Our values are essential to us in order to ‘live life in all its fullness’. As a Church of England school, we recognise that we are part of a rich history, delivering high quality education to the places and people where it is most needed. In that respect, we exist to serve both the Christian community of Coventry and the surrounding area, and our local geographical community.

 

As a Church of England School, we place high importance on developing the whole individual: academically, socially and spiritually. We look for opportunities to recognise our values in lessons and times together, and staff adopt the language of our values in interactions with pupils.

 

The Church of England Vision for Education is ‘Deeply Christian, Serving the Common Good’. ‘Living life in all its fullness’, allows students and staff to pursue the big questions of life, whilst allowing for considerable diversity of opinion and freedom of expression: a ‘complex yet generous’ model.

 

‘Living life in all its fullness’ is a vision which encourages all members of the school community to reach their potential in everything they do. Our school is one which is fully inclusive, truly diverse and about the whole person. It is a challenge to all of us to make the most of every experience and opportunity.

 

We know that not all staff and pupils will be followers of the Christian faith, yet there is an expectation that all members of the school community are sympathetic and respectful of the place of individual faith in personal development. Our values therefore reflect the distinctiveness of the Christian faith yet can be applied by all stakeholders, no matter their spiritual or cultural background.

 

Our curriculum is both rich and challenging and delivered by a dedicated, enthusiastic and experienced staff. We pride ourselves on the breadth and variety of our extra-curricular provision with Music, Drama and Sport playing a pivotal role in the wider educational experience we provide and demonstrating the importance of ‘Togetherness’ in our school community.

 

With our strong ethos, high expectations and excellent examination results, Blue Coat is a place where children thrive and learn to live life in all its fullness. We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
