Getting to Know School - 2024

New Reception Intake - Getting to Know School Programme

If your child is due to start with us in Reception this September, you can find some useful information and videos below. 

The 'Getting to Know School Programme' (GTKS) is a comprehensive programme designed to give new families a thorough introduction to Bluecoat and to allow children to feel welcomed and prepared, ready to start their Bluecoat journey. We look forward to meeting you all in the coming weeks!
