Curriculum Intent Statement for Potters Green School
At Potters Green School the curriculum is designed to nurture the bright futures of our pupils by giving them a love of learning, broadening their life experiences and enabling them to develop key skills for future success. We believe at Potters Green that the school is a constant figure in a changing world for its pupils. The inter-connected curriculum offered is one which is broad and balanced and which ‘hooks’ children into their learning and which makes it fun. Within our curriculum we are proactive in working with our young people on issues which may be challenging for them within the local area and upskill them to make good choices for themselves and have high aspirations for their future. Potters Green believes that children are entitled to access a range of activities and experiences tailored to meet the needs of our unique school community with the expectation that this will support everyone in becoming educated, responsible, respectful and resilient citizens of Coventry. At Potters we are also committed to developing the learning outside of the classroom and tailoring the offer that is provided for specific needs. The curriculum fosters resilience and motivates and rewards children for good learning behaviours.
