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.
Potters Gate Primary School works alongside St. Andrew’s Infant School with an executive leadership. The two schools have a long history together which continues to be evident with the very close working relationship that exists today.
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.

OUR CHRISTIAN VISION
Achieving excellence through a values curriculum based on
FELLOWSHIP, JUSTICE, RESILIENCE AND TRUST
At the heart of our school the children’s well-being and safety is centred on a creative and aspirational curriculum, exposing children to the wonders of the natural world, with everyone motivated to succeed and fulfill their unique destiny.
Our nurturing school community encourages children to find joy in life, their faith and learning, finding moral strength and discovering a spiritual depth.
This is achieved through our Christian Values of
John 14:1 (Jesus' words to his disciples) 'Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.'
Potters Gate Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
