Coronavirus update: 14.5.20

Update on Coronavirus –

You will have heard the Government announcement asking schools to expand their current provision in order to accommodate more pupils from 1st June.  Pupil and staff safety will remain the primary concern in any planning we undertake and it may not be possible to welcome back all pupils in the way the Prime Minister described. Further updates will be provided next week when we have obtained further information and guidance.



This school remains closed to all pupils except those that have been identified as having the greatest need for provision.

We all have our part to play in helping to stop the spread of Coronavirus. This means we must stay at home to protect the NHS and help save lives.

Community Classrooms for vulnerable students and key workers’ children

Parents should keep children at home wherever possible and thanks to everyone across our community who has followed that advice. The fewer children making the journey to school and the fewer children in our Community Classrooms, the lower the risk of the virus spreading.

At these periods of uncertainty, it is essential that we have up to date email addresses for all parents. If you haven’t recently received an email from us, please email info@arklittleridgeprimary.org with up to date contact details.

This is an unsettling and disruptive time for everyone and we will work together as a school and local community to face the challenging times ahead. Thank you for your support and understanding during these exceptional circumstances. If we can do anything more to help your family, please do not hesitate to get in touch.


Please continue to follow health guidance.





Thank you to everyone for your understanding during these challenging times and a heartfelt thanks to our NHS and key workers who are working so hard to look after us all.

If you need to contact the school, please email info@arklitttleridgeprimary.org

Welcome from our Head of School

Welcome to Ark Little Ridge Primary Academy. We are a community primary school which works very closely with Ark Blacklands and Ark Castledown Primary Academies to serve the local children of Hastings.


At Ark Little Ridge Primary Academy we have high expectations of all our pupils. We know this is essential if we are to realise our vision. We are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to ensure each of our pupils succeed. To achieve their ambitious goals, our pupils and staff work hard and have high aspirations. We put English and mathematics at the heart of our primary curriculum. Skills learnt in these subjects provide the foundations for all learning. Our enrichment activities allow opportunities for our pupils to develop skills in other areas of the curriculum.
