What a week of celebration: not only did we celebrate the achievements of our Year 6 children as they prepare to leave us for their new secondary schools, but we also celebrated Portway's Outstanding Ofsted judgement. This week, Damian Hinds, Secretary of State for Education, visited Portway to hear about how Portway and Selwyn worked together to deliver huge improvements at Portway, benefiting our local community, which now has two Outstanding schools to choose from. Read more about the visit in the newsletter - http://bit.ly/2Lnp0kY.
We were delighted to receive a letter from the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the School System, Lord Agnew, recognising our achievement in retaining our Outstanding grading further to our Ofsted inspection in March this year.
Welcome to this week's double newsletter, which reports on both the last week before the half term break, and the first week of this final half term of the school year. We hope that you enjoy the new newsletter format, which has been designed to ensure that it is easy to download and read on all mobile as well as fixed devices.
We would love to know what parents think - please give any feedback to the school office, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
