Information for grown ups



We are looking forward to welcoming your child to our school as a new Year 3 pupil in September. 

Obviously, we do not know what the next few weeks will hold and so we are not making any final decisions about induction meetings, visits, etc, until things are a little clearer.  

Our aim is for this part of our website to be dedicated to information that is helpful for parents and carers of the children who will join us in September. You will have hopefully also noticed the section of the website that is aimed at your children. Please have a look at this with them and watch the videos we have uploaded - there will be more over time! 

The link below shows you a little more of our school. We are looking forward to welcoming you and your children for the start of Year 3.

Portway Junior School Parent Booklet 

Please see below a link to the Information Booklet we usually give to Y3 parents at the Induction Meeting that we would usually have.  Although we have included all information as we would normally do, please bear in mind that, with the current COVID-19 situation,  we are unsure of what September will look like for our pupils. Therefore there are arrangements that might not happen in the way that they normally would. We  will endeavour to keep  you as up to date as possible. 

Y3 Parent Information Booklet 

The other document that you may find interesting is our Portway Press. This is our school newsletter that is published weekly. It is always sent to parents/carers on a Wednesday and a copy can always be found on the front page of our website. 

Y3 Transition Booklet 

We have produced a transition booklet for children coming into the junior school. There is a link to it on the children's page of the website but,  if you would like to have a look at it too, please click the link below. It gives some 'who's who' information for the new year.
