Our Values

Our School Values underpin the life at the school. We focus on one value every half term and you will see these values in and around our school; they are woven into lessons and learning. We believe that these values develop our children towards being confident learners and leaders and becoming the best that they can be. Our Values are:








Life at Ark John Archer

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum at Ark John Archer Primary Academy; one that is rich and inspiring, with a broad range of experiences and opportunities. We endeavour to enrich the curriculum with a wide range of trips. We are incredibly lucky to have a variety of transport links so that we can unlock the wonders of the city for the children. We are committed to educating the whole child in order to enable them to reach their potential. Pupil wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do and we pride ourselves on knowing every single child.

Partnerships with Families

Working in partnership with Parents, Carers, Families and the wider community is crucial to ensure all our children develop both their educational and social skills. We pride ourselves in our open-door policy as we are here to support our community to develop and grow. We believe that children deserve the best possible chances in life and that they learn best when there are strong links between home and school.


I am very proud to be the Principal of such a richly diverse school community, which is representative of this busy and exciting area in London. At Ark John Archer Primary Academy, children from many different backgrounds and cultures learn together as one and everyone is valued, supported encouraged and celebrated.
