Welcome. My name is Richard Healey and I am the Headteacher here at Perry Court E-ACT Academy.
It is with great pleasure that I can announce that during the 2018-19 academic year Perry Court became the highest ranked school in Bristol for KS2 outcomes with a staggering 96% of children achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and maths combined. This will put Perry Court in the bracket of one of the highest achieving schools nationally at the end of KS2.
This achievement built upon the KS2 results during 2017-18 academic year when Perry Court became the most improved school nationally, improving from 16% (2016-17) to 69% in reading, writing and maths combined.
“Fantastic work in what must be one of the biggest leaps (in primary education) this year anywhere.” – Sir David Carter, Former National Schools Commissioner, July 2018.
As a result of the incredible journey our Academy has been on over the past 2 years it was humbling to be recognised nationally for whole school improvement when in April 2019 Perry Court E-ACT Academy was shortlisted as one of 8 schools for the prestigious TES Primary School of the Year Award – outstanding recognition for the hard work put in by an entire school community to raise standards and improve the life and educational opportunities for all of our children.
Through an entire staff team pulling together, with commitment of children, support from parents and carers and collaboration with E-ACT, Perry Court E-ACT Academy has rapidly improved and we know this is an academy on an exceptional educational journey that is flourishing within our community.
A focus on improving learning and teaching is at the forefront of everything we are doing here to ensure that all children make progress academically and socially no matter what their starting point. We offer a broad and balanced experiential curriculum for all children to immerse themselves within that supports and challenges each child to their full potential. All learning at our academy is strengthened by our six fundamental values: Compassion, Responsibility, Respect, Community, Success, Enjoy.
All staff have high expectations of all children in terms of behaviour and learning attitudes and we aim for children to leave Perry Court confident, responsible, determined and equipped with the tools to thrive and develop as lifelong learners. We also look for commitment from parents, families and carers and we wish for you to join us in a partnership that puts the success of children and their well-being at the centre of everything we do.
Safeguarding at Perry Court is the responsibility of everyone at the academy and collaboratively we work hard to ensure that all children are safe and happy. We are committed to safer recruitment to ensure the welfare of all pupils is maintained. Please see our safeguarding policy here – If you have any safeguarding concerns about any aspect of the academy please make an appointment to see me at the office.
We welcome all visitors and we are always keen to introduce new guests to our positive learning community, so if you wish to visit Perry Court then please get in touch with our office team via telephone or email to make an appointment and we will be delighted to show you around.
I hope you enjoy the website.
