Hear from our teachers
In our 2022 survey, staff commented that the supportive staff community and building relationships with the students are some of their favourite things about working at Ark Dickens Primary Academy.
"I've already recommended the school to a friend. The support from the staff working here, the structure, the high quality training. Here, you’re not expected to accomplish anything without having been trained in how to do it."
"Everyone comments on the friendliness of our staff. We listen. Ark listens, our Headteacher listens. It’s a very fair and supportive environment."
"My Headteacher is wonderful. She really supports me and talks me through different situations. It’s a two-tiered system: the support is both managerial and professional."
"Here it’s about working together. Everyone has the same focus and we work 100% as a team to get to where we need to be. Everyone is aware that if we want the best for these kids we have to work together."
A diverse and inclusive school
We have committed to delivering a series of commitments as part of a longer-term diversity and inclusion strategy.
