Supporting Portway families is a crucial part of how we support our children's learning both in the classroom and at home. The following documents are available to help parents support their child's learning:
1) Parental Engagement Policy: children have the best chance of success when home and school work together. Our Parental Engagement Policy describes our approach in this area.
2) Supporting your child’s attendance: without good attendance, children cannot make progress at school. Parental engagement (see our Parental Engagement Policy, also available on this page) is vital to ensure attendance – please have a look at this information, and speak to our Family Support Worker, Louise Wilson, for any additional advice and support.
3) Supporting literacy and maths at home: this section contains information re supporting your child's reading at home, which promotes the development of strong literacy skills. Guidance and advice re easy ways to help parents bring maths into everyday life are also available.
Information regarding what we teach, and how we teach it, are available on the curriculum and early years curriculum pages of the website; more detailed termly Curriculum Maps are available on the relevant Year Group pages. Parents will be notified of any updates via the News page of the website.
As always, please come and see us at school should you have any specific queries or concerns. Should you wish to obtain hard copies of any of the information hosted here, most of which has already been sent home with children, please contact the school office, where staff will be happy to help.
For any general enquiries, please use the ‘contact us’ section of the website.
