Blue Coat School, founded in 1693, is a popular and successful Voluntary Aided school situated in the town of Wotton-under-Edge. Situated 10 minutes from the M5 and only a short drive from Stroud, Tetbury and Thornbury, our school is within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The school leadership structure
is in the form of our Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher, Assistant
Headteacher and our Business Manager. Following consultation with our
stakeholders, we have developed an exciting vision for Blue Coat by focusing
firmly on the future and how we best prepare our pupils for it. Underpinning
this vision are four core Christian Values – all of which are firmly embedded
and have significant impact on our whole school community, as recognized within
the “Outstanding” SIAMS report
The school was last fully
inspected by Ofsted in 2023 when it achieved an Good Ofsted
judgement. Blue Coat has a committed team
of teaching and non-teaching staff who work together to provide the best
possible education for our children.
As a Voluntary Aided school,
Blue Coat has very close links with our local church. The children visit St
Mary’s Church for a service at least once a term and representatives from the
local churches lead acts of worship in school on a weekly basis as well as
providing a range of other enrichment experiences.
Our Parent Teacher Association
(PTA) is very active, forward-thinking and supportive, organising several major
fundraisers over the academic year which contribute towards funding the
school’s improvement priorities. Families are extremely supportive of our
school and involved in all aspects of school life.
The Governors work closely with
the Headteacher and staff in evaluating and improving the education we offer
and ensuring that we provide the best possible outcomes for all our pupils.
