The Blue Coat School is a family that supports and encourages each other and the pastoral care of our students is very important to us. This has been one of the main reasons our students excel within school, whatever their ability.
The pastoral care of our students at Blue Coat is immensely important. The provision that we provide in this area ensures that they are able to get the most out of their learning and personal development.
At the off-set we want our students to feel part of the Blue Coat Family and we hope to promote this ethos at the very start of a student’s journey here at Blue Coat through the induction process.
Students are placed in one of five Form Houses and each has a Form Tutor who is responsible for the day to day well-being of 30 pupils.
In the Sixth Form, students are placed in appropriate tutor groups headed by Sixth Form Tutors who are similarly responsible for the overall well-being of their students.
Another layer of care is provided by the Key Stage Leaders. There are two leaders for each of the three Key Stages. These members of staff are responsible for monitoring the general welfare and progress of the students and implementing any appropriate intervention as well as being the liaison between the student, parents/carers and staff.
