Ark Little Ridge Primary Academy - Admission Policy 2022


Welcome from Kate Woolley, Head of School

I am writing to you to introduce myself as your new Head of School of Ark Little Ridge from September 2020. I am delighted and extremely proud to take up this post in a school which I feel passionately about and dedicated to. I am so looking forward to working together with you over the coming years to continue to make Ark Little Ridge a wonderful learning community for your children.

I have worked at the school for several years, initially as a class teacher and most recently as the Assistant Head as part of the Senior Leadership team. During that time, I have worked closely with our staff and children to lead, inspire and motivate them to becoming the best that they can be.

I am committed to providing the very best education for the children of Ark Little Ridge and hold a strong belief in the power of education to change children’s lives and the right of every child to receive an excellent education. I am dedicated to building opportunities for pupils achieve high academic standards but also ensuring that they are known as individuals and that their unique personality, talents and interests are nurtured and allowed to develop.

From my experience of being a school leader, I know that a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together, and that parents make an important contribution to children’s achievements at school. I am looking forward to developing excellent working relationships with all of you.

In September, we are hopeful that school will return for all pupils, but this is likely to look different to usual. Please be assured that as soon as we have finalised arrangements, these will be communicated to you.

I wish to thank you in advance for your support and to let you know, I am determined to do the very best for Ark Little Ridge; I am excited and enthused to take up this new role in September.

For the time being, stay safe and well and I hope you all have an enjoyable summer.

I look forward to seeing you back in school soon.

Kate Woolley (Head of School)
