We were visited by Ofsted on Tuesday 7th January 2020 for a two day, Section 8 inspection. The inspectors recognised the 'positive changes' that have been made recently at Downsview. They also recognised that our pupils feel safe and that they 'know the adults care for them.' The report also highlights our need to further to promote reading throughout the school and offer more opportunities for personal development for our pupils
