At Bluecoat Wollaton we believe that there should be a strong partnership between the Academy, students and parents / carers in order to ensure that students are happy, supported in their education and fulfil their potential and ambitions: our aim is for our students to get in to the best universities in the country.

At Bluecoat Wollaton we feel it is important to set about making excellent progress in your child’s learning by reinforcing crucial information beyond the classroom. Research indicates that the most effective homework for younger students is carefully organised and monitored. To help structure this important aspect of their learning they are issued with a Knowledge Organiser. The purpose of this is to set well-structured and challenging homework that strengthens their understanding of key information, concepts and subject specific terminology directly related to the syllabuses that inform their GCSE examinations. They are assessed by a variety of in-class or on-line quizzes and handing work in.
There are sections of the booklet which outline what subjects they should complete and on which night. There is space for you to sign off this work as complete and should help you support your son/daughter in carrying out their homework tasks efficiently. Furthermore, each subject page has details of the work that should be completed and signed off.
As well as this there is a reading log which allows you to record the reading your child is completing at home –the most consistent and voracious readers during the course of the year will be rewarded.
Versions of the organiser can be found below.
Please look at and use the booklet below to help you self-test and use your Knowledge Organiser effectively.

Supporting your child with Literacy and Numeracy
Attendance at Bluecoat Wollaton is consistently at or above 97% which is Outstanding. This figure is significantly above the national average and the same high standards are expected for this current academic year, 2020/21. It is your responsibility to ensure that your child attends the Academy regularly and punctually.
We are very proud of the calm and purposeful atmosphere at the Bluecoat Wollaton Academy and rely on the full support of parents / carers to re-enforce the high standards and expectations of student behaviour. We believe that parents choose this Academy due to this insistence on the highest levels of respect, behaviour and work ethic. We ask that parents support any disciplinary actions that are taken in order to ensure that their child is a successful learner.
