Ark Oval Primary Academy: Our Week 10th - 14th January 2022

Sunday 16 January 2022

Principal's Summary

Dear Parents and Carers, 

This week we put the first actual step back to total normality. While we maintain our plans for all worst-case scenarios, 58 Yr6 pupils will undertake a three-day residential visit this week. We haven't managed to do this since June 2019. 

This experience will be hugely important for those children. Still, there is broader importance to us all as a community. We can overcome the challenges around us and make sure that every child has the opportunity to experience, grow and learn as they should in the coming years. We are free of the shackles of the situation we have been in but not forgetting the lessons we have learned and the community we have built.
