Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages and publishing those outcomes online.
We are therefore subject to inspection by Ofsted. However, since converting to an academy, we have not yet been inspected; once this does take place the report can be accessed below.
To help guide you further, our ‘Interim Assessment’ since becoming an academy is also available here. This confirmed that we had sustained our high standards.
Before converting to an academy we were rated as at least ‘good’ in all areas.
We are a Church of England Academy and our mission is to create a distinctive educational community for all based upon Christian faith and values. Our ethos is based on our mission statement ‘believe; in yourself, in others, in God.’ This is grounded in the principle from the Bible to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and love your neighbour as yourself” (Luke 10:27).
Our belief is that every student is unique and valued by God. This is critical to the relationships and personal approach to the curriculum that we take with every young person. We aim to develop confident students that have a strong sense of justice and doing what is right. We encourage students to develop belief in themselves in order to be the best they can be. Our students are taught to be resilient, they can work independently and have a good understanding of where they have come from and who they are.
Our belief is that we should value and care for each other. This is reflected in the ‘harmonious community’ that makes up Bluecoat, ‘where all are respected for who they are.’ (SIAMS Inspection Report, May 2016) Students feel part of a local, national and global community, believing in others and working together towards a common purpose. Students develop into respectful, supportive and considerate members of the community who are passionate about making a difference in a context where faith is nurtured and valued.
