Privacy Policy

Who we are

We are Ark Curriculum Plus, The Yellow Building, 1 Nicholas Road, London, W11 4AN. For the purposes of Data Protection legislation, Ark Curriculum Plus is the ‘Data Controller’. This means Ark Curriculum Plus is responsible for any data held about you.

All personal data is held in compliance with UK Data Protection legislation, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018 and with all other laws concerning the protection of personal information, including the Privacy & Electronic Communications Regulations 2003.

We take your data protection seriously, and this Privacy Notice is designed to explain how we use any personal information we collect about you.

How long do we hold your personal information?

We only keep your information for as long as we need to, or for as long as the law requires us to. For more information about how long we keep personal information please email us at for a copy of our Data Retention Schedule.

Keeping in touch

If you are a registered user of MyMastery, or have expressed an interest in English Mastery, Mathematics Mastery or other forthcoming programmes on our website, and have given us consent to contact you, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, ask for feedback or keep you up to date with our programme of work. 

If you no longer wish to hear from us, you can unsubscribe quickly and easily using the link at the bottom of our emails, or email and we will remove you from the list.

Providing digital services

Schools who join the English or Mathematics Mastery programme receive access to our MyMastery learning platform. We will share information with our third-party digital platform provider for the purpose of providing this service. The digital platform provider is the “Data Processor” and Ark Curriculum Plus remains the “Data Controller”.

We recommend that you check the privacy policy of each site you visit and contact the owner or operator if you have any questions or concerns.


Any and all breaches of the GDPR, including a breach of any of the data protection principles shall be reported as soon as it is/they are discovered, to the Ark Curriculum Plus Data Protection Officer.

The Officer will then assess the extent of the breach and take the appropriate steps and precautionary measure to mitigate any risks to affected individuals.
