Thomas Arnold Primary SchoolLearning for Life



Dear Parents and Carers


I am delighted to be joining the team at Thomas Arnold Primary School.  I have lived and worked in Barking & Dagenham for twenty years and in recent times I have seen how Thomas Arnold Primary School has gone from strength to strength. You know only too well that this success is due to the endeavours of our highly motivated staff, alongside the hard working pupils & supportive parents and governors.


We plan to maintain this positive journey.  We are a community of learners, committed to high educational standards and excellent pastoral care. Our aim is to create a place where children are inspired to learn and achieve to the very best of their ability. A place where children love coming to school, where they feel safe, develop strong friendships, have fun and have the confidence to explore new challenges.


We believe very strongly in working closely with parents and carers, who provide so much essential encouragement and security to enable children to thrive during their years at school.   I have received a very warm welcome from those of you that I have already met.  I look forward to working with you all in the future. 


We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to leave comments in the Guestbook, or contact the school direct with any queries you may have.


If, as parent of a pupil attending this school, you require a paper copy of the information on this website,we shall provide this  free of charge.

Thank you for visiting!


Yours faithfully,

Mr M Goodyear,
