We are moving!
We are counting down to the move from temporary accommodation within Ark Priory Primary Academy to our own new building on the Vale: just a few weeks left to go! We move in the week beginning 19th February 2018 and the school will be closed whilst we move.
Ofsted and Performance Data
We are delighted that Ark Byron's performance data to date is significantly ahead of national averages.
Early Years Foundation Stage "Good Level of Development" data:
Children are considered to have reached the "Good Level of Development" if they meet the Early Learning Goal in the first 12 learning areas of the EYFS curriculum. This indicates they are ready for Year 1.
2016: 86% of Ark Byron Reception children achieved the Good Level of Development (national average 69%)
2017: 85% of Ark Byron Reception children achieved the Good Level of Development (national average 71%)
End of Year 1 Phonics Screening Check
2017: 97% of Ark Byron Year 1 children passed the Phonics Screening Check (national average 81%).
Ark Byron opened in September 2015 and there has been no Ofsted inspection yet.
