Dates and Events

Please remember that the Governors do not authorise holidays or extended leave during term time. Please do not make any travel arrangements during term. Please be aware that if your child is absent from school for an unauthorised holiday or unauthorised leave, you could be subject to a fine or your child could lose their school place at Blue Coat.

Please look out in our weekly newsletter (Blue Print) for further details. Blue Print is sent home with your child every Friday and it is also available online via the Federation website here.

Please be aware that dates can change. If this happens we will endeavour to inform you at the earliest opportunity. Thank you for your understanding and support.
