The children are at the heart of everything we do here at Bluecoat and as such there is an overwhelming sense that it is their school.  There is an enormous amount of pride that comes from them and a desire to make the school the best it can be.

Year on year pupils from across the year groups are keen and excited to put themselves forward for a number of roles and responsibilities that are available to them; roles that allow them to represent their peers and their school.

Pupil Councillors

The Pupil Council is an elected body of pupils whose role is to represent a valued pupil voice regarding key issues that concern the school, aspects of the local community and events further afield.Each year, every class votes for their representative who then attends regular meetings. It is the representative’s responsibility to relay ideas or concerns from their class to the Council, as well as to report back on items discussed during the meetings. This exchange of information provides the opportunity for all students to be involved in the decision making process concerning aspects which affect the life of the school.
