Welcome to Dartford Primary Academy

We are a large three-form entry school with a split site (Infants and Nursery based at St Albans Road and Juniors based at York Road).  We have an excellent, established nursery provision with committed, dedicated staff.

Dartford Primary Academy is a welcoming, safe and happy place where everyone feels valued and is listened to. We aspire for all children to achieve their full potential in a stimulating environment that both nurtures and challenges them, enabling them to become independent and resilient learners.

Our motto – Determined, Persistent Achievers Learning to Change the World underpins the values for all in the academy.
