Every student at Bluecoat Beechdale Academy is issued with a Knowledge Organiser, which captures all the key facts students need to be able to recall, in order to access lesson content. Each subject has a designated page, which will be an invaluable revision resource as they collect them each half term. The Knowledge Organiser does not capture everything that is covered in lessons but outlines the key information that students need to remember.
