We welcome your child to Portfields School. The information in this website gives details about our School. Please use it for reference, but do contact us for any clarification or further information you require.

Portfields is fortunate in having a beautiful building and large site, of which we are very proud.


“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.

The vision of the Governors of the Portfields School is:

To give each child the best preparation for life in a changing environment, instilling in them the values for continual learning, tolerance and respect for self and others.

To achieve this vision the following are
the principles which will be followed:

The School will promote and provide equal opportunity of education for all, regardless of gender, race, background, culture, belief and ability. 

The needs of the children will always be of primary importance in making all decisions regarding the management of the School and its resources. 

The School will employ the best quality staff and provide opportunity for continuing professional development.

The education of the children is a responsibility shared between the School and the parents. The school will encourage and support parents to fulfill this shared responsibility and remain approachable and open for consultation.

The curriculum will be balanced, broad-based and differentiated to meet individual needs. It will be reviewed regularly to anticipate and respond to developments in attitudes and values in society.

The School will provide a stimulating and challenging environment in which active learning will take place.

The health, safety and security of the children will be of paramount importance.

Discipline will be fair and consistent with no tolerance of bullying within the School community.

The School will be responsive to concerns raised by all and will create an environment where all parties are comfortable to share their feelings.

Through constant monitoring and evaluation, the School will strive to to recognise the needs of all children and to stretch their horizons to maximise their potential.

As a Foundation School the Governing Body is its own Admissions Authority.

It is determined that the school will continue to admit children as a single point of entry in the September in the year in which they are five years old. This is in line with Milton Keynes Education Authority policy with whom Portfields will endeavour to work in partnership.

The school does not operate a selection process, and places are available in line with our Equal Opportunities and Social Inclusion policies, and irrespective of where they live.

The official limit for admission to the school is 105 pupils in each year group.

The Reserved Area:

The Poets Estate, odds house numbers of Wolverton Road to Lakes Lane one way, and to the M1 motorway bridge the other way.

In offering places the following criteria will be applied.

•  Portfields is first preference.

•  Pupils living in reserved area

•  Pupils with siblings attending the school at time of admission or eldest child in family.

•  Those who have special reasons for requesting admission to Portfields

•  In the event of greater demand for admission than places available, then children with a Statement of Special Educational Need naming Portfields School have the highest priority, followed by “looked after” children living in the reserved area.

If parents living outside the reserved area wish their child to attend Portfields, they should apply to the school and applications would be considered if places are available.

In the spirit of Portfields' vision, all provision will give equal and equitable opportunity for children and diversity of choice for parents. In the event of over-subscription an Appeals panel will be convened and applications considered accordingly.


We expect all pupils to wear school uniform. Portfields sweatshirts and polo shirts may be purchased from school and other items can be purchased in most main stores. We have orders at various intervals throughout the year for sweatshirts and polo shirts. Gym Bags and brief-case style Reading Folders can also be purchased; these bags are normally in stock and can be obtained from the Office. The school also provides a special bag for carrying items to school as we cannot accommodate back-packs and other sports-type bags.
