Portfield School was inspected by Ofsted on 21st March 2019. The inspection concluded that Portfield continues to be a good school. The report highlights that the school has maintained a good quality of education since its last inspection.
The report recognises that Portfield is a happy, friendly, safe and encouraging place. This involves strong relationships between staff and students, high expectations and a team around the child approach which is personalised and results in students developing their skills well.
We are making a real difference in the lives of our students and their families. We are delighted that the efforts of all those involved and the achievements of the school have been recognised by Ofsted; however we will not rest on our laurels, there is more to do and we will continue to ensure that we provide the very best for every student.

We welcome any enquiries and would encourage you to contact us to arrange a visit of the school so you can see first-hand our specialist facilities, dedicated staff, happy students and experience the warm, safe atmosphere for yourself. Please do get in touch with us for a chat or to arrange a visit. If you’d like your child to attend The Portfield School, please get in touch with us. We welcome all enquiries and are happy to arrange tours of the school so you can see our specialist facilities, meet key staff and ensure it meets your requirements.
If you feel that Portfield School may be the right school for your child, you will need to contact your Local Authority. If they then make a formal referral to us, we will promptly carry out a comprehensive assessment.
Our admissions panel will then carefully consider the assessment’s findings and decide on our ability to meet your child’s needs. We will also take into account the age of the student, any additional needs, learning style and whether we have an appropriate peer group at the time.
If an offer of a placement is made, we will need agreement from the Local Authority that they are willing to supply funding. If the place is accepted, we will then work with everyone involved to ensure a thorough and robust transition plan is implemented. This could include us writing social stores, visiting the student, sharing photographs and arranging visits to the school.
If the school reaches capacity and we have children referred to us for admission, we will operate a waiting list system. Children will be allocated a place based on the spaces which become available.
