Parents and Carers


Children who have started Reception at Bluecoat arrive from many different pre-school settings. The decision to create two classes is based on the best available information at the time, but given the wide range of settings Reception children join the school from, there is limited face to face prior knowledge of the children, friendships, attainment, learning needs, support required, progress, capability and aptitude. However, by the end of Reception there is a very detailed knowledge of the children in all areas of learning, which can inform our decision making for class organisation the following year. We also often have children leave or join the school in different year groups at different points throughout the year. These children have to slot into whichever class has a space. Re-organising classes helps us to find the best place for all children.

If you would like to know more about how and why we move children between classes, please see rationale for the re-organisation of parallel classes document below:
