02 May 2019 - Ofsted - Outstanding judgement

Thursday 02 May 2019

As already advised to parents and carers, on the 27th and 28th March 2019, Ofsted came to inspect our school, for the first time since March 2015.

The inspectors were very impressed with all we have on offer at Portway; in particular, they singled out:

  • Our broad, interesting and well organised curriculum
  • Our children's positive, engaged approach to their learning
  • The excellent academic progress that our children make at school
  • The high levels of attainment in maths and English
  • The way in which we work to support our children's personal development and welfare
  • The way in which our children support and encourage each other
  • The excellent behaviour of our children, both in lessons and around the school building
  • The way in which all groups of children make excellent progress
  • The excellent teaching across all areas of the curriculum, and the high expectations we have for our children

Please do take a look at the report, available to download on this page, alongside a copy of the letter sent to parents.  It will also shortly be published on the Ofsted website.

Thank you to staff, children and parents for working together to ensure this fantastic recognition of our collective efforts at school.
