A warm welcome from Mr Crossley

I would like to take  this opportunity to welcome you to Portland Primary School which has eight classes including a Foundation One base.

At Portland we work hard to ensure excellent relationships between children, staff and parents.  We are regularly described as being a happy, welcoming school which has the child at the heart of all we do. 

All staff are committed to high standards of teaching and learning and the continued development of our provision. We have recently reviewed many aspects of our curriculum and are currently implementing a number of exciting changes that will enhance pupil learning. Our focus is on all pupils achieving their potential and becoming valuable members of the community.

 Children’s attitudes and personal qualities are very important to us and we work hard in partnership with parents to develop these across our school.  We  prioritise the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics as pupil confidence and attainment in these is key for personal development, opening up  future  life opportunities and achieving one's full potential.


Mr P Crossley
