The Academy Attendance target is 96%. It is your responsibility to ensure that your child attends the Academy regularly and punctually. As well as the significant loss in learning opportunities which come from low attendance, there is a significant reason to demonstrate high attendance and punctuality, as these personal records are sent to employers, higher education institutions and apprenticeships when references are requested.


We are very proud of the calm and purposeful atmosphere at the Bluecoat Beechdale Academy and rely on the full support of parents / carers to re-enforce the high standards and expectations of student behaviour. We ask that parents support any disciplinary actions that are taken in order to ensure that their child is a successful learner.

Learning and Attainment

Using Go4Schools you can access data on how your child is progressing, this includes attainment data and their attitude to learning (ATL grades.) A guide to the data available for your child can be found in the Progress, Assessment and Reporting section of this website.

Please ensure your child completes homework tasks on time and that they take advantage of the study clubs and intervention sessions that operate in and out of the Academy day.
