We were delighted to be presented with a ‘Good Schools Award’ at the second Teach Portsmouth Awards ceremony on Friday 4th October 2019.
The Portsmouth Education Partnership Teach Portsmouth Awards celebrate much of the fantastic work that takes place in the schools and colleges in Portsmouth.
We received the award for our ‘Good’ assessment at our recent Ofsted Short Inspection in November 2018 where we were recognised as an ambitious, happy and hardworking school where pupils and staff strive continuously to live out school’s values of ‘believe, inspire, achieve.’
Middle leaders are a significant strength of the school. They promote consistently strong teaching through precise monitoring of learning and achievement with subsequent effective support.
Pupils say they love coming to school. They talk openly and enthusiastically about their learning and their enjoyment of lessons and playtime. Pupils described their school as ‘brilliant, fantastic and fun’. They are well behaved, move around the building sensibly and use equipment carefully. In lessons, pupil maintain their concentration well and pay full attention to the guidance that adults offer them. Consequently, they achieve well.
