The Blue Coat School promotes equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice and ensures that every child is included and not disadvantaged because of ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, learning difficulties or disabilities, gender or ability.

We are committed to establishing and maintaining high standards of behaviour in all aspects of school life. Behaviour includes personal standards, self-discipline, manners, respect, pride, general conduct, and attitude. Children follow the Blue Coat School Values and are expected to be courteous and well-mannered and to show respect for the opinions and rights of other members of the school community.

Be Truthful, Patient and Kind

Cheerfully Persevere

Show Respect to Others


We can be trusted to be honest and truthful, to say what we mean and to do what we say.


We aim to stay calm while waiting, not getting angry with each other and never trying to take revenge, to get our own back, or to get even.


We care for others through our words and actions, always being ready to give and share, especially with those who are in difficulty.


We work hard, trying to do everything to the best of our abilities, refusing to give up when things are hard.


We recognise that we are all of value and importance, and we appreciate each other despite our differences.
