Ark Bryon on track to become Outstanding, say inspectors.

This term, Ofsted visited us to conduct an ungraded inspection.

They gathered evidence, and we are pleased to share that they concluded Ark Byron would receive an outstanding mark if a graded inspection took place now.

Inspectors described the school as "happy and harmonious", adding that "pupils behave very well. They are respectful, kind and respond positively to the high expectations the school sets."  

The report highlighted that "learning is careful and linked across the curriculum. This helps pupils to be highly secure in subject-specific knowledge and skills. As a result, pupils access more complex concepts and make connections across their learning with confidence."  
Inspectors also found that "teachers' subject knowledge is a strength because the school and the trust prioritise subject leadership and staff development. Teachers think carefully about how pupils learn best."   

Principal Daniela Grasso said, "I am pleased the report reflects our wonderful school. It recognises our hard work, pupils' enjoyment and progress, and the brilliant support we receive from our parents and governors."
