We are still encountering some teething problems with IT in our new building. This is being worked on, but it can prove difficult for us to pick up phone messages. Please email us (if you can) rather than leave messages so that we can respond quickly - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to Ark Byron Primary Academy
WELCOME TO ARK BYRON PRIMARY ACADEMY
Ark Byron Primary is a new primary school in Acton Park for 4-11 year olds. We will be welcoming our first children in September 2015.
Our mission is to make sure that every child is supported and nurtured from their very first day with us, as we help them to develop in the classroom and beyond.
MORE TIME FOR ENGLISH AND MATHS
We are focused on helping all of our pupils master the basics of English and maths because if your child does well in these subjects then they are more likely to do well in their other lessons.
We dedicate more time to English and maths than most other schools, and it shows; our primary schools achieved a brilliant 88% pass rate in phonics, compared with the national average of 74%. Three of our schools even had a 100% pass rate.
BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
As well as developing skills inside the classroom, it is important to us that your child has plenty of opportunities to develop outside of the classroom. Taking part in activities such as sports, music and drama clubs and arts and crafts are brilliant ways to improve their confidence and social skills.
THE ARK NETWORK
We are proud to be part of the Ark network of schools because it offers our pupils and staff great support, the chance to learn from each other and the opportunity to take part in local and national events and performances.
Each Ark school has its own unique character, but we all share the same mission - to give every child the very best start in life.
Being part of the Ark network means that we are able to learn from others that have also created fantastic schools, including Ark Conway Primary Academy in White City, which is the best primary school in the country.
Nearby Ark Priory Primary Academy is also a part of the network and we are looking forward to working closely together.
