Dear Parents and Carers,
We opened Ark Byron Primary Academy in September 2015 and now have five year groups, ranging from Reception to Year 4 and a total of 300 pupils. At Ark Byron we are committed to providing the best possible education and experience, whilst also expecting the highest standards, from staff, pupils and parents. The school is not selective nor fee paying and welcomes pupils from all backgrounds.
We believe in high academic standards but learning at Ark Byron is not simply about academic achievement. We want to develop the whole child to have caring, considerate pupils with a love of learning. Please look at our news pages to glimpse some of the varied learning experiences enjoyed by Byron children. Ofsted has graded us as "good" (November 2018) and there is a copy of the report on this website.
Our mission is to set the foundations and preparation for university or a career of choice, to provide pupils with real life choices and enhance their opportunities.
Ark Byron’s values and our logo encapsulate our vision and ethos. Our motto “Courage to reach for the sky” reflects the high aspirations we have for each pupil, encouraging them to aim high in everything that they do. Pupils are encouraged to try new things, to challenge themselves and never give up. By doing so, they will excel in everything they do.
As part of the Ark Academy network Ark Byron Primary Academy has total commitment to providing all its pupils the best possible start with their education and setting children on an exciting learning journey; enabling every child to make excellent progress and reach his or her full potential.
Our new building on the edge of Acton Park provides us with an enviable location and we enjoy using this unique position to help our pupils develop an interest in, and respect for, the natural world and the environment.
