Welcome to Newcroft Primary Academy from Alex Smythe, Executive Head teacher
I am delighted to welcome you to our website.
Newcroft Primary Academy opened its doors to children aged 3 to 11 years (Pre-School to Year 6) in September 2016 after choosing to convert the previous school. Newcroft Primary School, to an Academy.
Newcroft is an Ofsted Outstanding Rated Primary School in Shepshed, Leicestershire and we have a strong tradition for hard work, aspiration and pride in what we do at the school
In the main school, we cater for children from 4 years old (Reception) to 11 years old (Y6). Our Pre-school is for children after their 3rd birthday.
We are very proud of the school and the outcomes for our pupils; and we welcome visits from any parents interested in finding the best possible education for their children.
Newcroft is a founding member of the Symphony Learning Trust which is a multi-academy trust, set up to provide a firm strategic approach to excellence in a number of Leicestershire schools.
Newcroft is also the lead of Symphony Teaching School providing professional development, initial teacher training and school to school support for schools in need.
Newcroft is led on a day to day basis by Mrs Hallam (the Head of School) and I work with her and other senior leaders to define the strategic direction of the school (as I also do at Thornton Primary School in my capacity as Executive Head).
Mr Alex Smythe
Executive Head teacher
