Pupils’ behaviour is praised
A PORTISHEAD primary school has received a positive report from Ofsted following an inspection in May.
St Joseph’s Primary School was found to be a good school overall, with outstanding elements, according to the latest Ofsted report.
Of all the judgements made, half were rated as outstanding. Among these were the work carried out in the Early Years Foundation Stage and the spiritual, moral and cultural development encouraged by the school.
The children’s behaviour also won particular praise.
The report confirmed that inspectors found teaching in the school to be consistently good and deputy headteacher Sue McMahon said the lead inspector remarked on the polite, articulate pupils, quipping that he thought he had met many future leaders among the children.
