Learning Together Achieving Forever
Our mission statement “Learning Together, Achieving Forever” reflects our understanding and beliefs. We aim to ensure that the children at our school are provided with high quality learning experiences based on a broad and balanced curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school. This leads to a consistently high level of pupil achievement, preparing pupils for the challenges, opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
The school is characterised by the strong partnerships which exist between the pupils, staff, parents and governors. We believe in being open, friendly and honest in our communications. Every week we write and circulate a newsletter known as the Portway Press, which keeps all in our community up-to-date with news and events. We recognise that through the hard work and commitment of all those in school we have been able to build and maintain our high standards.
We are very lucky to have a school that has modern facilities, but with a long tradition of being at the very heart of the local community. I believe we offer a happy and friendly atmosphere where children can grow to their full potential and become responsible and caring members of the community. The school has very good academic standards but we are also proud of our achievements in sport, music, drama and art.
I am very proud to be the Headteacher at Portway Junior School. If you would like any further information or a tour of the school, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
