The Governing Body of Bluecoat Academy working in liaison with The Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham and the Department for Education supports Bluecoat Academy. Bluecoat Academy offers an all though education from age 4 – 19. The Academy is both distinctively Christian and inclusive. It is clear about its Christian ethos whilst welcoming children of other faiths or no faith. The Academy primarily serves families who wish their children to receive education within a Christian framework in which religious education, acts of worship and the spiritual life of the Academy are in accordance with the principles and practice of the Church of England. Families are advised that children are expected to participate in daily acts of worship and to receive a full religious education.

Admission Arrangements and Forms
Determined Admission Arrangements 2019/20
Bluecoat Primary Academy has recently undertaken statutory consultation on proposed admission arrangements 2019/20.
Bluecoat Academy was an all-though Academy operating on 3 sites, with the secondary provisions at the Aspley Lane Campus and Wollaton Park Campus. Following our recent consultation to formally separate the primary and secondary phases into their own distinct schools the academies are now officially their own school, this therefore requires each Academy to have their own admission arrangements, as such, for admission from 2019/20, there will be separate admission arrangements for the academies, details of the determined admission arrangements for 2019/20 for Bluecoat Primary Academy can be found below.
The admission round for 2019/20 intake will open in September 2018.
