Results and inspections - we are an Ofsted Outstanding school

Portway Primary School is an Outstanding school across all categories.


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.  


Results for summer 2021


Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the government did not conduct the usual summative assessments at the end of key stage 2 (known as SATS, which are sat by our year 6 children).  As stated on the DfE (Department for Education website):

Primary School Assessments - we will not publish any national, regional, local or constituency statistics for any primary school assessments for the 2020 to 2021 academic year.  This includes key stage 2'.

A summary of the summer 2019 key stage 2 results at both our schools, available on this webpage, is published below.  More detailed information (from both 2019 and 2018) is available in the document to download on the left of this page.  Should you require any further information about the results at our school, please feel free to get in touch.
