School Description

Portway Primary School is a larger than the average-sized primary school and is in the London Borough of Newham. The current headteacher was appointed in September 2015. The school converted to an academy in May 2016, joining the Leading Learning Trust, a multi-academy trust. The academy trust is governed by a trust board. The trustees have established a local governing body for each of their schools. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is well above average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is lower than the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is higher than that found in most primary schools. A small number of pupils attend off-site provision at Eleanor Smith School, Newham and Newham pupil referral unit, RIET. Inspection report: Portway Primary School, 27 to 28 March 2019 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection The inspection team observed learning in a range of lessons and parts of lessons across the school. The majority of these were carried out jointly with the headteacher, deputy headteacher or the CEO of the multi-academy trust. Meetings were held with the headteacher, deputy headteacher, senior leaders, the SENCo, the early years leader, members of the safeguarding team, members of the governing body, middle leaders, newly qualified teachers and the chief executive officer of Leading Learning Trust. An inspector spoke on the telephone with the chair of the school improvement board which advises the trust and monitors the performance of the trust schools. The inspection team observed pupils’ behaviour during lessons, when moving to and from lessons and during breaktime and lunchtime. Inspectors met formally with groups of pupils drawn from different classes. In addition, inspectors spoke informally with pupils in lessons and around the school. An inspector listened to the reading of a small group of pupils from Years 2 and 4. Inspectors also scrutinised pupils’ work from all year groups. Inspectors considered the 72 responses to Ofsted’s online parent survey, Parent View, and the 19 free-text comments submitted by parents. Inspectors also spoke to parents in the school playground. The inspection team reviewed a range of school documents and policies, including behaviour and attendance information, information about pupils’ achievement, minutes of governing body meetings and documentation relating to the safeguarding of pupils.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.
