Dearest Parents and Carers,

We hope you and all your loved ones continue to stay safe and well. I am sure by now you have all heard the Prime Minister's announcement about schools and the decision to have all year groups back in full-time education from Monday 8th March. You can read the government's plan here

We cannot wait to welcome back all our pupils but I appreciate that there may be some nervousness for us all as we approach this. I want to assure you that, as ever, the safety and wellbeing of your children and our staff remains our priority.  

Many of the measures we put in place in the autumn term will still be in operation when your child returns to school. For example, there will continue to be a staggered start to the school day for different year groups to support social distance measures and face coverings will continue to be worn by pupils and staff.

We will now be drawing up more detailed plans for a safe return to school for pupils and staff from March 8th and I will share these plans and what that means for your child as soon as these are finalised. 

In the meantime, please do continue to support your child with remote learning and if you have any questions, please do get in touch with the leadership team on info@arkboulton.org.

Kind regards, 

Leadership Team.

Welcome from our Executive Principal

My vision for Ark Boulton Academy is simple: together we give each of our students the skills, personal qualities and qualifications they need to be successful at university and in the career of their choice; together we make them role models for future generations, helping them to fulfil their potential and raise aspirations; and that together we reach higher by ensuring that our young people can compete on level terms for places at university and in the job market. 

At Ark Boulton Academy we work together to ensure that each of our children can overcome barriers to learning, catch up where needed and achieve at the highest levels by working harder, behaving better and making faster progress than children in other schools.
