A great term with attendance!

Attendance at Ark William Parker has improved considerably in the last term. Our boys have shown a commendable dedication to their studies and have shown the perseverance to attend school every day. We are sure that the results of this will show in their end of year assessments in the summer! Have a great half-term and see you back at school on Monday 4th June!

Developing our students

Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of students at Ark William Parker Academy

Good Practice Guide

At Ark William Parker, we fully understand that the development of our students spiritually, morally, socially and culturally is the responsibility of all members of the academy community.  Each community member, regardless of their role, contributes to this personal development of the young men in our care.

The academy’s church school status, our assembly and tutorial pattern, our additional dropdown days and events along with our vision document, our core values and our Parker Manners and Parker Rewards all work collaboratively to develop the core awareness, values, skills and understanding that we seek for our students. However, in addition to that, we expect this development to take place day by day in and around the classrooms and the different subjects taught. 

It is impossible to ‘map’ this provision as, whilst some of it can be identified in advance through perusal of our schemes of work, other opportunities present themselves on a regular basis through the events of school life and the class discussions and conversations held. The following documentation does not seek to be a comprehensive map, therefore; rather, it serves as an exemplar of the types of development opportunities that will be found at Ark William Parker. It is a useful resource for parents, for leaders who are checking that these opportunities are being taken and for staff who are training or new to the Ark network and seeking to align their practice to the expectations we set.
