We also offer extra-curricular activities linked to career pathways through our Bluecoat Life initiative.
What is Bluecoat Life?
Bluecoat Life is an initiative which ensures career-related learning happens within our school in the form of different after school clubs. Bluecoat Life after school clubs will involve teachers and teaching assistants raising aspirations and broadening children’s’ horizons (through careers insights and ‘what’s my job’ discussions) and offering our children career opportunities within our curriculum (through topic-based activities) designed to motivate children, to give them self-belief and to connect learning to life. This also includes children learning to improve their non-academic skills (i.e. activities often based in the curriculum but geared more towards improving enterprise and life skills, financial awareness, socioemotional skills and behaviours
When does Bluecoat Life happen?
Bluecoat Life happens every Tuesday after school from 3:10pm to 3:50pm for the first 5 weeks of each half term. Children can choose from a range of four after school clubs that all have a focus of developing their non-academic skills. Each club is led by three Bluecoat Teaching Assistants and has a maximum of 20 pupils per club.
