Joining Ark Byron Primary Academy is an exciting opportunity to help develop a young and growing school (currently in its fifth year) and embark on a rewarding career path within the Ark Multi-Academy Trust. 

Ark Byron Primary Academy is a two-form entry primary school that opened in September 2015 and currently has 420 pupils across six year groups from Reception to Year 6.  

We are based in a brand new, purpose-built building in a fantastic park setting on the edge of Acton Park, with views of trees from every room. We make use of this unique resource through integrating outdoor learning into our curriculum.

Our motto, “Courage to reach for the sky!” reflects Ark Byron’s high expectations for every child.  By aiming high and setting ambitious goals, we believe that pupils will be able to reach their full potential, though this will require real effort and persistence.  We support our pupils to show courage and take risks to improve, learn new things and embrace new experiences, so that they become resilient and equipped to deal with life and to be both successful and happy. 

We encourage children and adults to follow the Ark Byron values of “Exploration, Endeavour and Excellence” in everything they do.  

Our community is already very strong, we are fortunate to have an extremely committed and supportive parent body. The diversity of our staff and student body is a source of pride to us, celebrating all backgrounds and cultures. 

There are plenty of opportunities for career progression and we offer exceptional professional development opportunities.  We will provide access to regular training and coaching, and an arena to share best practice regularly. 

Our ideal candidate will:

• be a positive role model for the pupils in your care,

• believe in the potential of every child and be committed to seeing that every child reaches that potential,

• be able to inspire learning beyond the classroom, ensuring that learning doesn’t stop once the school day ends,

• possess the skills and determination to make a significant difference to the lives of the children,

• be enthusiastic to contribute to the success of this exciting young learning community.

Applications must be received by noon on Friday 3rd December 2021.   We will review applications as we receive them and may contact applicants before the closing date.  Interviews will take place from Wednesday 24th November 2021.
