School years are amongst the most important in our lives, helping us to develop the knowledge, skills and characteristics we need to succeed. At Archway Learning Trust, we are committed to giving every child the very best start that we can. We offer outstanding teaching and learning and exceptional personal support in an inclusive, faith based environment. I became a teacher because I believe in equal opportunities for everyone.

We also believe that every child has the right to an excellent education. Learning is at the heart of any good society and the opportunity to learn from teachers who are committed, enthusiastic and innovative is a right that all children should have.

Our mission is to help children to understand and believe in themselves, respect and care for others and to develop a wide understanding of faith, the world around them and their place within it. The determination of our youngsters to succeed, and the passion of our teachers to make a difference, makes me proud to be Chief Executive Officer of this diverse and dynamic family of Trust’s.

Under the sponsorship of Bluecoat Academy, we have grown to become a strong member of the Archway Learning Trust, playing our part in continuing the tradition of excellent education for children from the City of Nottingham and beyond.

We are thrilled that, in February 2017, Ofsted recognised the many wonderful opportunities that we are providing for our students. In particular Ofsted acknowledged the tremendous progress that has been made at the school since the last inspection of our predecessor school in 2013. It is a great source of pride for everyone connected with Bluecoat Beechdale Academy that we have made huge strides to improve in all key areas and received ‘Good’ judgements in teaching and learning, outcomes, leadership and the overall effectiveness of the Academy.

 We have high aspirations for ourselves, our students and the community we serve and our intention is to improve life chances and life experiences for the children and families we work with. This was evident to the Ofsted inspection team who made the following observations:

“All pupils are being well prepared for [the] next stage of their education, training and employment, because the school ensures that they leave with the skills they need to prosper”

 “Teaching assistants provide effective support to help pupils who have complex learning needs."

BELIEVE – Bluecoat Beechdale Academy is part of Archway Learning Trust whose ethos is summed up by its mission statement: ‘Believe – in yourself, in others, in God’. Although Bluecoat Beechdale Academy is not a Church of England Academy, it was decided that this word – ‘Believe’ – encapsulates the strong links we have with the Trust, while also expressing the commitment to encourage self-belief in our students. Believe speaks of aspiration, ambition, hard work, commitment and setting and achieving goals, all of which are central to our work at Bluecoat Beechdale Academy.

BELONG – The academy has always had a strong sense of community, both amongst its staff team and through its close ties with local primary schools, sports teams and the local community. Bluecoat Beechdale Academy set out to build on these foundations as a successful local school, for local children. The word ‘Belong’ expresses this commitment to our community and a strong sense of togetherness, service to others, inclusion, pastoral care and a shared common purpose.

ACHIEVE – Coming to Bluecoat Beechdale Academy is about students gaining the best possible grades in academic qualifications which will help young people make the next step in their lives. It is also about fulfilling potential in vocational learning, sport, the arts, outward bounds activities and student leadership awards. Our success as an academy is rightly measured by the extent to which our students achieve a range of qualifications and other skills, enabling them to lead successful lives which, in turn, enrich the lives of others

Bluecoat Academy Church of England Primary opened in January 2015 representing growth for the Trust to create an all through learning experience from ages 3 to11. The Primary Academy is an integral part of the Trust benefitting from the Christian ethos, all the shared services and vibrancy of the well-established academy and staffing body.

There are strong links between the primary and secondary schools, which presents exciting opportunities for cross phase learning and integral links between primary and secondary provision of great advantage, including transition work, academically more able work and enriched programmes of teaching and learning.

The academy moved into its new state of the art building in January 2017 where it currently educates 240 students from Reception to Year 4. Each year the school will welcome 60 new Reception children until the school is full from Reception to Year 6. From September 2017, the academy opened a 26 place Nursery and a Focus Provision for children with ASD. The new building has been designed to create a wonderful learning environment for children to help us maximise their opportunities to flourish whilst in our care.

Ours is an exciting environment in which to work, with pupils from a range of cultural backgrounds. Our pupils have very positive attitudes towards their learning and their behaviour. The Primary Phase allows the Trust to intervene earlier in children's lives to provide hope, aspiration and education to be whatever they believe they can be. We aim to provide education where:

We can dream, imagine and be inspired                           Everyone is unique and valued

Enquiry and creativity lead to success

Children are safe, happy and independent           Learning is fun, innovative and challenging. 

The Trust are proud of the staffing body at the Primary and this will continue to grow year on year with excellent opportunities for prospective candidates who want to be part of creating this fantastic learning environment. 

Vision and Ethos
