ARK Atwood Primary Academy is structured under the leadership of the Headteacher.
At ARK Atwood Primary Academy we believe that in order to ensure all our pupils achieve to the highest level we need to do things differently.
ARK Atwood Primary Academy will admit 60 Reception pupils in two forms each year. In our first year, 2011/12, we will have just 60 Reception pupils. We will add 60 each year until in 2017 the school reaches its full complement of 420 from Reception to Year 6 plus a 30 place Nursery.
We believe you can only teach to a high standard if each teacher knows their pupils well. To maintain the feeling of a small school the academy will be managed as an infant school and a junior school. Keeping the school small will help us to create a strong school community where no pupil is left behind.
All children need a firm mastery of English and mathematics as early as possible. Our first priority is to build a secure foundation in literacy and numeracy as the basis for all other learning. Pupils will be taught to read, write and work with numbers fluently and confidently. Where pupils need extra support it will be provided, to ensure that every child reaches and exceeds nationally expected standards.
To achieve our goals, we need to extend learning time. Our pupils benefit from a longer school day, giving them the opportunity to take part in additional learning activities, including musical instrument lessons, art and sports. To provide this extra time for learning the primary school day will run from 8.30am–4.00pm.
