Coxhoe Primary School

Believe and Achieve

0191 3770294


We know that even at the young age of three or four, children are already starting to form their first aspirations. By six they are starting to have opinions on what they think they can or can’t do in the future. By the time they’re 10, young people start to make decisions which could go on to limit their future options. 

At Coxhoe Primary School, we believe that all children have the potential to flourish, reach their full potential and be whatever they aspire to be in life. Our key curriculum drivers underpin this belief:

  • Our curriculum is driven by challenging stereotypes and building cultural capital where our children have the knowledge and experiences to be successful and make choices without limits.
  • Our curriculum promotes the importance of being aspirational where our children believe that they can achieve ambitious goals in order to have a successful career.

What does this look like in our school?

  • Making meaningful links to the world of work within curriculum lessons
  • Providing children with opportunities to learn from real world contexts, interact with employers and experience workplaces
  • Enabling children to make links between what they are learning in the classroom and the practical application of that knowledge (and skills)
  • Ensuring that children begin to understand the skills required in the workplace and have opportunities to develop these
  • Helping children understand the opportunities available to them in the local and regional labour market, and variety of pathways into these roles, including through further and higher education.
