Rated Good by Ofsted

Following our recent section 8 Ofsted inspection in July 2022, we are delighted to share with you that Ark Little Ridge Primary Academy continues to be a good school with EYFS and Leadership and Management continuing to be rated as outstanding.

The report shows there is enough evidence of improved performance to suggest that Ark Little Ridge Primary Academy could be judged outstanding if a section 5 inspection was carried in the near future.

We collaborate with children’s mental health charity Place2Be to support our pupils. Our on-site kitchen take pride in preparing fresh, healthy lunches for pupils every day.
