Ark Oval Primary School – consultation

arkArk Oval School is consulting on the possible expansion of the school. If the proposal goes ahead 90 places will be offered to children applying for reception places in September 2015 using the school’s normal admissions arrangements. The school will receive additional funding to employ an extra class teacher and meet the other extra costs associated with the additional children in the school. The school would continue to receive an additional class in reception each year, so that by 2022 the school would have an extra 210 pupils in total, with 90 children in every year group.

There is more information on their website including a questionnaire if you would like to take part on the consultation.

Ark Oval Primary School is doing exceptionally well and their has ben a rapid improvement due to the hard work of staff and commitment of pupils and parents. Cllr Mark Watson, who was part of the Executive Board that appointed Ark and who is a founding governor of ARK Oval Primary Academy, stated “Sonia has done a fantastic job in turning the school around and motivating staff and pupils to excellence. Ark Oval is becoming the school of choice for local parents and I am pleased that residents  now have an excellent school locally available. The school is keen to develop link with the wider community so I hope local people will contribute positively to the consultation to expand the school.”
