As a long-standing member of the Didcot community, I feel privileged to be Headteacher at Aureus Primary School, a growing school, at the heart of a growing new community on Great Western Park. As the Headteacher, I take pride in knowing each child personally, championing their achievements and supporting them to fulfil their potential.
Our aim is for our children is to dream, believe and achieve and our embedded STEAM curriculum has been specifically written and deliberately designed for children living in Oxfordshire. We follow The National Curriculum and deliver it through a Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics lens. The STEAM curriculum is a vehicle to encourage children to aspire to work in the high technology industries within Oxfordshire and to develop a love of learning.
Wellbeing and nurture of children is at the heart of all school decisions, our explicitly taught high expectations are modelled by staff and are underpinned by our school values. These values are respect, appreciation, compassion, determination, grit, resilience, excellence, creativity, curiosity, responsibility, leadership and teamwork.
Our extensive grounds enable us to provide rich indoor and outdoor learning environments, where we can foster confident, independent learners.
