Portesbery School's most recent Ofsted inspection was in May 2023. The overall rating for the school was 'Good', and we received some very positive comments, including;

Pupils arrive at school with smiles on their faces. They are happy, safe and well looked after.

Every moment of every day is focused on learning. Staff exploit every opportunity to teach pupils important life skills.

Learning through different experiences enriches the curriculum. There are many opportunities for outdoor learning, including various trips and visits to places in the local area. These different activities help pupils to develop their understanding of risk taking, safety and their sense of community.

During the inspection, one member of staff captured the views of many. They described the school as a ‘magical place’. Staff feel well supported by the headteacher and other leaders. Their workload and well-being are prioritised.

Ofsted Parent View - Give Ofsted your view on your child's school

Ofsted Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think of your child’s school, including: 

 - how happy your child is at the school

 - how the school manages bullying or challenging behaviour  

If your child has special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), we will ask how well the school supports them. 

The questionnaire can be completed at any time - you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected. 

We will use your responses to help us plan inspections. The information you provide can:  

- inform discussions inspectors have with school leaders during an inspection  

 - help Ofsted decide when to inspect a school   

In addition to this, we also publish the overall summary of the responses to Ofsted Parent View. This information is anonymised.
