Welcome to Newcroft Primary Academy

As Head teacher at Newcroft, I am delighted to welcome you to our website.

Newcroft Primary Academy opened its doors to children aged 3 to 10 years (Pre-School to Year 5) 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.


In the main school, we cater for children from 4 Years to 10 Years (Y5). 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.


We have a strong tradition for hard work, aspiration and pride in what we do at Newcroft. As such, some of the information on this site reflects the history of the school from when it was Newcroft Primary School.


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 Leicestershires schools.

Do you know a child who is a young carer, caring for adults in their lives? If so, please contact us at school so that we can help seek the appropriate support for this. We can help both the adults and the children involved.

Thank you.
