Our Mission

At Dartford Primary Academy, from Nursery onwards, we provide children with meaningful opportunities and experiences to become global citizens who have a desire to learn. 

Our purpose is to equip our children to be internationally-minded and to possess the essential skills they need to be successful and engaged in all their learning throughout their educational careers and within their future vocations. They will leave Dartford Primary Academy as determined, persistent achievers who have the aspiration to change the world for the better.

As individuals, through the embedding of the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile, our children become open-minded and knowledgeable as they develop their ability to inquire and explore their own curiosities. They learn how to tackle problems through thinking skills and communicate, in more than one language, as they work collaboratively. At all times they act in a principled manner and are caring to all that they engage with. Our children develop the confidence to be risk-takers and work both independently and cooperatively. They also develop an understanding of how to reflect on our world and their own ideas and experiences and to ensure that they take a balanced approach in order to maintain and promote wellbeing.

Our aim is to send all our pupils onwards so they become lifelong learners, who are successful, confident and responsible global citizens with a desire to improve the world in which they live.
