School improvement

Westfield Primary Academy is always striving to improve and develop; 

We are ambitious for our school.

On this, the "School Improvement" page, you will see information about our results etc. We have also set the targets for next year's attainment; progress towards these is closely monitored to enable targetted teaching against assessments.
Please talk to your child's teacher for updates about their progress towards targets. 

Pupil Attainment Data

Booster classes very effective - April estimates have been exceeded!

It should be noted that Westfield Primary Academy opened on 1st October 2013 and as such cannot show comparitive end of KS1 or end of KS2 attainment and achievement results.
However, all cohorts of pupils transferred from Westfield CP School into Westfield Primary Academy, therefore we have assessment tracking data referring to past data, when the school was a Local Authority maintained school. 

There has been significant improvement in KS2 results when tracked from the first year of having a Year 6 cohort in 2012. There has been a continued upward trend in KS2 results, with this year's results are the best yet:
