We are delighted that you are interested in visiting us in person here at Bluecoat Primary Academy, where our students have immense pride in their school. Our guests often comment on the calm and purposeful atmosphere at our academy and we are confident that you will be impressed with what you see.
Whilst some visitors choose to visit the school as part of our formal tours for potential Reception applications each year (dates below), we also welcome visitors throughout the academic year, often receiving guests weekly. To arrange a visit or book onto one of the tours please contact the Primary office directly on 0115 900 7200.
Bluecoat Primary Academy Head Teacher Mrs Shaw, will always be very pleased to meet with you.
Starting Nursery or Foundation Stage 2 in September 2020
Dear all parents/carers,
Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances, we were unable to hold our yearly EYFS new starters welcome meeting for the children joining us in Nursery or Reception in September 2020. Instead, we held a live stream event on Tuesday 23rd June 2020. Thank you to all of those who attended. The live online event enabled us to address parents and explain a little more about what starting school looks like for you and your child. The evening mimicked as much as possibly the normal ‘EYFS Welcome Meeting’ held each year
If you unfortunately missed the live event, then you can still watch a prerecording of the event by clicking:
This link will take you to a prerecording of the live event, where you will be able to listen to Mrs Shaw, Mrs Trowbridge and the EYFS Team talk to you all about the school, a typical day in Reception and Nursery and what the EYFS curriculum looks like.
We hope you find this useful and we all look forward to working with you and welcoming you and your child into our school in September.
Mr. B Jackson
