What does it mean to be a Church of England Academy?
As a Church of England Academy, we believe that positive and supportive relationships are key to the success of all members of our family.
These are underpinned by a shared belief that each individual is made in the image of God. This has a profound impact on behaviour. Scholars and staff alike take care of each other and believe, ‘I am because we are’. This reflects the Christian understanding of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It means that bullying is rare and that we aim for every member of the Ark All Saints Academy (AASA) family to feel loved and supported. Attendance is high. The pastoral system offers scholars forgiveness and a fresh start each day.
Scholars feel that staff care for them, want them to succeed and work hard to keep them safe. The sense of being a Christian family is palpable.
‘I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.’ John 10: 10
I am the Reverend Roberts Ark All Saints Academy’s Chaplain. I joined the Ark All Saints family in June 2014 and live in the neighbourhood not far from school. I am Vicar of Camberwell St Michael – the church joined onto the school building. I know the local area our scholars come from very well.
I’m involved in the ‘MumSpace’ and ‘English for Action’ that meet in my church. The Iman of the local mosque and I have a very good friendship. I also do some work for the Southwark Church of England Diocese.
I have a good friendship with the Iman at the mosque in the corner of Wyndham Road and Camberwell Road. I also do some work for the Southwark Church of England Diocese.
I am sure that Ark All Saints is God’s gift to our scholars so that they can live their best lives. Every day, I help Ark All Saints appreciate and realise what God is doing at the school through our Morning Reflections, and I help find the words to bring to God in prayers.
I am always happy to speak with staff, scholars and parents.
