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 school which has the child at the heart of all we do.  All staff are committed to high standards of teaching and learning.

  We are always developing our curriculum so that children can achieve their full potential and become valuable members of the community.

 Children’s attitudes and personal qualities are very important to us; we work hard in partnership with parents, to develop this across our school.  We also prioritise carefully so that children’s basic core skills are maximised: reading, writing and mathematics understanding is vital for each child.  Pupil confidence in these aspects is viewed as fundamental for future development both for the individual and society as a whole.


Mr P Crossley
