Privacy Notice for Pupils

Children

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. As such 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.

More coming soon.

Pupil Councillors Collective Worship Focus Group
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. The elected Councillors for 2017/18 are Violet & Connor (Year 2), Aaron , Freddy & Evie(Year 3), Honey & Thomas (Year 4), Eion & Jemima (Year 5), and Stanley & Lilly-Mai (Year 6). Every year, one child from each class is chosen to be a representative in a Focus Group set up to monitor Collective Worship in the school.These children are also given responsibilities during Collective Worship sessions, such as introducing Collective Worship daily in Chapter 3, lighting the candle and leading the liturgy for the day. In Chapters 1 and 2, the children might set up the hall, light the candle and operate the music.All the children are given the opportunity to participate in our Church services.The group meets with Mrs Flower, the Collective Worship co-ordinator and our link governor, Mrs Terry Insull, once every half term to discuss any matters related to Collective Worship and to offer any ideas they or their class might have.Once a year the group are invited to represent the school at a Special Celebration service organised by the Exeter Diocese for Church schools.
Arts Ambassadors Eco Ambassadors
More coming soon. Eco Ambassadors were newly established in September 2017. One pupil was elected from each class to take on the role which will involve half termly meetings. The focus will be on how we can, as a school, care for and improve the local environment in our own school grounds, the local community and contribute nationally and globally too!

The first mission is to improve the ‘pond area’ which has become very neglected and in need of care and attention, as well as improve the environment to be an area for learning, for example, when studying life processes in science but also as an area for reflection, peace and calm.

The elected Eco Ambassadors for 2017/18 are Harry (1M), Ted (1HT), George (2M), Alex (2P), Lincoln (2/3S), Megan  (3Y), Calypso (3M), Joe (4HH), Leo (4A), Chloe (4B), Ethan (5MH), Zak (5SH), Amelia (6S) and Finley (6D).
