HOW GOOD THE SCHOOL IS…… OfSTED 2002
“Portfields is an outstanding school that provides a happy and very stimulating learning environment for its pupils. There is a very positive ethos, and staff and pupils work hard. The quality of teaching is very good; pupils are challenged and make very good progress whatever their previous attainment. The school provides an exceptionally broad curriculum. It also provides very well for the pupils' personal and cultural development. The Headteacher's contribution is outstanding and with the senior teachers, leads the school very well. The school provides very good value for money”.
We are proud of Portfields achievements, but we will never become complacent. Life is ever moving on, and therefore we aim to equip our pupils for the ever-changing, technological world in which we live. We wish to do this in positive partnership with parents and carers.
The purpose of the site is to:
• Celebrate our children's achievements by sharing it with our visitors
• Provide useful information about the life and work of our school
We hope you find this website informative and that this is the beginning of a long and happy relationship with us. We will work together to help your child learn with confidence and develop independence in order to prepare them for the next phase in their education and ultimately adult life.
Portfields School - About Us
Classes work within Year Groups, each one corresponding with the National Curriculum designation. Our primary objective is to ensure that every child within a year group has a similar educational experience; irrespective of the class he or she is in.
Teachers plan co-operatively, encouraging an investigative, problem-solving approach through thematic methods. Teaching methodology is planned and exercised through 1:1, group or whole class teaching. Setting is undertaken as deemed appropriate.
We feel that it is essential to foster a positive relationship among children and adults, and therefore all staff are committed to making school enjoyable, as well as challenging and stimulating.
