Through our faith in God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we strive to nurture each pupils` abilities and talents so that they can `have life to the full` (John 10.10) and use it in the service of God and other people.
The curriculum at Newton Bluecoat School is about:

Never giving up
Exciting and enjoyable
Christian and has British Values embedded at its heart
Outward looking pupils
We also recognise the importance of an education which meets statutory requirements where all pupils can make good progress spiritually, socially and emotionally as well as academically. We aim to develop well-rounded young people who treat other people as they would like to be treated themselves and are ready to’ live life in all its fullness’ , meeting the challenges of life with confidence and enthusiasm.
Through quality teaching of knowledge, skills and vocabulary across core and foundation subjects, all children will be challenged to be inquisitive, compassionate, courageous and creative learners. They will have opportunities to influence their own learning through age appropriate and progressive themes and topics. Effective learning characteristics including being ambitious, reflective and imaginative will drive teaching and learning.
Our children will have a confident set of skills, knowledge, norms and Christian values which can be used to get ahead in education and life more generally. In short they will learn more, remember more, enjoy more and develop more spiritually, socially and emotionally. Thus enabling them to be ready for their next stage in education.
