From September 2019, following the merger with King Solomon Academy, all pupils at Ark Paddington Green will become King Solomon Academy pupils and there will be one admission point to King Solomon Academy.
Are you looking for a school place for your child? We still have nursery and reception places available and would love for your child to join the Ark Paddington Green and King Solomon Academy family.

As part of the Ark network, Paddington Green benefits from a rigorous approach to pupil tracking, that allows for progress to be achieved by our pupils. Our pupils' learning is assessed and compared to pupils across the Ark network, so that our teachers can see how pupils are performing and share the teaching techniques which really work. Within this context, pupils are assessed formally on a termly basis (on average) in each of Reading, Writing and Maths.
We aim for all our pupils to achieve a good level of development across nursery and reception and for them all to achieve success in the Phonics screener at the end of Year 1. As our pupils enter KS1 and then KS2, we are able to use nationally referenced tests to assess both attainment and progress over time. This enables us to track how our pupils perform compared to the ambitious targets to be set for them.
