School Improvement Plan

&

Self Evaluation Form

At Portfield Primary Academy we have high expectations of everything we do and recognise the importance of ongoing school development. We also recognise the great provision that we already offer and are keen to develop this further to make it even better. Working together, learning from the past and looking to the future will allow us to have clear direction and an unwavering aspiration in our journey to becoming a school of excellence.

As we strive to be an Outstanding school, our key objectives this year reflect our last OFSTED report findings (July 2016) and our vision for the future of Portfield:

1) Continue to improve outcomes and ensure that pupils achieve their full potential by:

a) making sure that teachers respond more effectively to pupils’ needs during lessons

b) reducing the absence and fixed-term exclusion rates

2) Improve communication with parents so that they are well informed about the school’s work and about improvements in its performance since the previous inspection.
