Primary Academy



A welcome from the Executive Principal - Mrs Alison Ashcroft


A very warm welcome to Didcot Primary Academy.  This is a highly successful, popular and multicultural primary school.  I am the founding Principal of Didcot Primary Academy and am now Executive Principal of both Didcot Primary Academy and Sires Hill Primary Academy which opened in September 2023.  Both schools benefit from a shared leadership and curriculum. 


At Didcot Primary Academy, children will be immersed in a learning environment that will enable them to be equipped to be successful in a rapidly changing world.  They will learn to be resilient, creative and have a growth mindset.  They will learn that struggle and challenge are vital parts of the learning process and will be able to cope with, and adapt to, change.  They will have hands on experiences and we will continue to foster the natural insatiable curiosity that they are born with into sustaining a life long love of learning.  This will start right from our nursery class and continue into Year 6.  We only have two rules in our school: Be kind and Be brilliant! These underpin everything that we do. Our outstanding Ofsted report (June 2019) identified the wonderful ethos and values that abound in our school.  The staff team are truly inspirational and we work with unity to provide the very best educational experience for our children.


In addition to this, your child and yourselves as parents will be welcomed into a very special community that is united in wanting the very best for your child. There are multiple opportunities to get involved and we will keep you informed about your child's progress throughout the year.  


Please look at the information on this website, but this does not replicate a visit.  We would love to be able to show you round our fantastic facilities and let you experience the wonderful ethos of learning that we have already established for yourself.  Reception tours can be booked during the autumn term.  I look forward to meeting you and your child. 



Be Kind, Be Brilliant
