We consider our popular school to be a very special place where children develop confidence and a love of learning. We have very strong links with our local community and families; the children are at the heart of all that we do within our school. We are proud of the inclusive nature of our school where every child is valued as an individual and recognised for their unique talents and gifts. 

We aim to make everyone's time at Ditton Primary an enjoyable and rewarding experience full of happy memories. Every child is supported to develop academically, creatively, socially and physically, developing a sense of responsibility for themselves and others.

Our school is aspirational, providing a quality education for all children and with high expectations of behaviour. Our staff are dedicated to meeting the needs of all pupils through an exciting curriculum that encourages life-long learning.

As a member school of Warrington Primary Academy Trust, we also believe in an overarching guiding principle:

"To deliver a first class education through partnership, innovation, school improvement and accountability."

The school is a secure, caring place, where pupils can develop a range of skills and abilities and achieve their highest standards. Parents are viewed as partners, fully aware of these expectations. To this end school is perceived as a family community, where everyone is valued, where the prevailing atmosphere is supportive, where consideration and respect for others and their property is maintained, and where quality relationships are a significant feature of the school.​
