Welcome to Aureus Primary School, a beautiful brand new state of the art primary school in Didcot. We are part of the newly forming but strongly knit local community of Great Western Park, Didcot.
I am delighted to lead Aureus Primary as it is a very special thing for any child, family or member of the school staff to be a part of the very beginning of the history of a new school.
As a GLF Academy school, we are wholly committed to ensuring the highest standard of education and provision for our children.
Our ethos is that of excellence. We aspire to achieve excellence in all that we do, in so doing our children are happy, well-rounded and able to enjoy the successes of life. An important part of excellence is being able to celebrate it and so incentives and rewards are particularly prominent in our approach to education. Parents and pupils are very proud of Aureus Primary. They have high levels of enthusiasm and an unwavering quest for emotional, social, academic, sporting and artistic success and enjoyment. We place a large emphasis on developing the creative arts and fostering creative spirits and minds.
Our staff are dedicated and committed to providing an engaging and inclusive curriculum for all our pupils, thus providing all the necessary ingredients to ensure success and progress for everyone. We believe that children have the right to access a curriculum designed around their specific needs and that takes their local surroundings into account. We could not be luckier! Our local area is riddled with STEM facilities and careers: Harwell Science and Technology Laboratories, Rutherton Appleford Laboratories, UTC and Williams F1 but to name a few! We are therefore very proud to offer a STEAM (we have added the A for 'the Arts') curriculum. Our strong desire is for all to leave Aureus Primary as successful children ready to embark on the next phase of their academic career with confidence, healthy minds and bodies, a desire to strive for excellence and inspired to work hard at their goals and ambitions.
Thank you for expressing an interest in Aureus Primary School and if you are looking for a reception or nursery place for 2019-2020 then please contact the office to arrange a visit.
We look forward to welcoming you on your arrival.
