Welcome to Ark Atwood. We are a two form entry primary school offering a great education for local children in north Westminster.

Our vision is for every child at Ark Atwood to fulfil his or her potential and be set up for success when they move on to secondary school and beyond. We will do everything possible to ensure that we meet the needs of all our children every day. Exemplary behaviour is crucial in enabling our children to learn and as such we have a no excuses culture. Our curriculum is broad and provides the children with the opportunity, through learning in school and beyond, to increase their knowledge of the world around them. Nurturing and developing the personal qualities of every child is also central to our ethos.

Our team of dedicated teachers, supported by every adult in the school, are committed to the success of all our children and teaching at the academy is excellent. Our colleagues are provided with the tools and support to instil a strong learning culture so that every child is set up for success.  Our commitment to knowing every child is shared by everyone on the team.

We strongly believe that children whose parents are involved and interested in their learning do well. We involve parents in their children’s learning and encourage them to be active members of the school community. Parent communication is organised to encourage wide participation and honest conversation.  We expect all parents to support their children’s educational aspirations and achievements.

Ark Atwood is part of the Ark Schools Multi Academy Trust. Within the Ark network, there is plenty of collaboration across schools so that our staff and ultimately, our children, are benefiting from a wealth of expertise.
