Knowing what it means to be part of a global community and a responsible global citizens who works for the good of their community, is something of great importance to us at Pilton Bluecoat Academy. Whilst with us, we strive to ensure that our children acquire a depth of knowledge about the world in which they live. Through this we want our pupils to build positive relationships with other children in the UK, Europe and from across the wider world. Teachers from Croatia, Turkey, Portugal and Italy visited our school in Autumn 2022, and our children have established links with the other children in these respective schools in order to see beyond the borders of North Devon.
