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. Central to our vision are our ‘Aspire’ school values that run through everything we do. Our values are:

Aspiration & Achievement We all achieve the best we can. We focus daily on doing whatever it takes to accomplish our goals.

Scholarship We are focused on excellence. Hard work and achievement are at the heart of our school.

Perseverance We believe in ourselves and never give up.

Integrity We do the right thing and choose honesty. We are our best selves.

Respect & Responsibility We treat others as we want to be treated.  We look to ourselves to do what needs to be done – no excuses.

Enthusiasm We remain positive. We show our positivity. The positivity we show gives us strength.

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 children’s learning and encourage them to be active members of the school community. Parent communication is organised to encourage wide participation and honest conversations. 

Ark Atwood is part of the Ark Schools Multi Academy Trust. Ark is a high performing network of schools committed to securing excellent outcomes for children; investing in the coaching and development of all staff is central to this.
