Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages and publish those outcomes online.
We have yet to be inspected as a new school. When this happens the report will appear here and also on the pages here
Bluecoat Bentinck Primary Academy does not yet have published performance data since it converted to an Academy in September 2023.
Outcomes from Academic year 22-23 will be the first set of data for Bluecoat Bentinck which will be published on this page once available.
Once we have our Key Stage 2 data you will be able to see how we compare to other schools via this link: https://www.gov.uk/school-performance-tables
We are privileged to work in a multi-cultural school where our children come from diverse heritage backgrounds. We strive to ensure that everyone is celebrated and ensure that all cultures and beliefs are valued and celebrated.
Our educational philosophy is a simple one and centres on achieving the best possible outcomes for all of our children so that they are ‘ready, responsible, respectful and safe.

All our pupils take part in structured PE lessons each week through which we aim to develop balance, control, agility, co-ordination, flexibility, strength, technique, tactical knowledge and teamwork skills. PE is delivered through areas recommended in the National Curriculum including Dance, Invasion Games, Gymnastics, Athletics, Outdoor Activities and Swimming. Our aim is to introduce children to a wide range of sports – giving them the opportunity to discover their passion in a supportive and inclusive environment. We are developing partnerships with different providers to ensure that we are consistently offering a high level of provision that engages children and allows them to progress in a manner that is best for their individual needs.
We also use specialist coaches to teach particular sports to ensure the best possible PE provision. Over recent years we have had professional coaches teach urban hockey, ice skating, tennis, basketball, trampolining, boccia, handball, gymnastics, athletics and dance to our pupils.
Swimming regularly is not only a great way of keeping fit and healthy but also an important life skill. This is why we now ensure that all children from in KS2 are provided with quality swimming lessons for a whole term each year.
Swimming lessons take place at the local John Carroll Leisure Centre and are led by two fully qualified swimming instructors. We feel that it is incredibly important for us to support as many children as we are able to access a high level of swimming instruction. These are used both to support children with the necessary skills to achieve the end of KS2 target of swimming 25 metres, and to ensure that children feel safe in the water and, hopefully, develop an enjoyment of the activity which they can pursue further at their own leisure.
After School Clubs
We aim to provide a variety of free sports clubs to our pupils, taking place at lunchtimes and after school.
After school clubs vary throughout the year due to the seasons. These regularly involve football and cricket clubs and a variety of others dependent on the time of year.
