Ark Paddington Green Celebrates Ofsted Result

Ark Paddington Green Primary is today celebrating the results of its recent Ofsted inspection, which graded the school as “good” with outstanding features.

The report praised the school’s leadership, stating: “Leaders, governors and the trust have worked highly effectively to make significant improvements to the school since it became an academy. They have designed a relevant and inspiring curriculum that develops pupils’ skills and knowledge, and fosters a strong understanding of equality and diversity”

Paddington Green joined the Ark network two years ago, working closely and collaboratively with nearby King Solomon Academy. From September 2019, the two schools will merge with all pupils at Ark Paddington Green becoming King Solomon Academy pupils.

Head of School, Katarine Deeks, said: “We should all be very proud of our fine school. I want to thank our special community of parents and carers who have remained committed to the school throughout these years of change and growth. We are grateful to the many families who fully support our mission to deliver an outstanding education for all, in order to ensure our pupils have the best chance of a life of choice and opportunity.”

Inspectors also praised the school for the outstanding personal development, behaviour and welfare of the children: “Pupils’ behaviour is impeccable. They are thoughtful and courteous and have excellent interpersonal skills. Pupils feel very safe at school. The quality of the work leaders do to foster pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding

Executive Principal Max Haimendorf added: “Ark Paddington Green Academy is a special place and school staff, pupils and the entire community should be really pleased to have received this well-deserved acknowledgment. We will continue to build on that success when the school joins with King Solomon Academy, allowing us to offer a great education to even more young people in this community.”
