Welcome to Potters Gate C of E Primary School

I have great pleasure in welcoming you to Potters Gate C of E Primary School. I hope that this website will give you the information that you need about our school.

At Potters Gate, children have the opportunity to form lifelong friendships and make an excellent start to their education. We are very proud of our school which offers an environment where staff, families and governors work together to ensure the best possible education for all our children.

As a Church school we have a distinctive character where Christian Values are promoted in all aspects of school life. We encourage all members of the school community to promote a Christian ethos where care and respect is shown to everyone. As a Church school there are strong links with the Parish Church of Saint Andrew's.

For the next few weeks, the value being considered as a whole school, in Collective Worship and in the general life of the school is Resilience.


Jayne Venables, Headteacher




At the heart of our school the children’s well-being and safety is centred on a creative and aspirational curriculum, with everyone motivated to succeed and fulfill their unique destiny.

Our nurturing school community encourages children to find joy in life and learning, to believe in themselves and others, exploring and celebrating matters of faith.

We  provide our children and families in the Town Centre an holistic experience, guided by worship, which engages the head, the heart and the hand to guide them to success.

This is achieved through our Christian Values of Fellowship, Justice, Resilience and Trust.

John 14:1 (Jesus' words to his disciples) 'Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God; trust also in me.'
