Family Hub

Welcome to the Family Hub section of our website, which was last updated in February 2018

This area of the website is designed to help parents understand and encourage their child's learning at school, and to support Portway families.  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. 

This part of the website is being developed as a Family Hub - an area which the Portway community, which includes parents and carers, can access in order to find information, advice and support across a wide number of areas.  All events are maked on the Portway calendar as 'Family Hub event - all welcome'.  A detailed programme of events (put together by our Family Liaison Officer, Wendy Zadigue, who can be contacted on is available as a document to download on this page.

The following documents are currently available to download; please review the Family Hub regularly as we plan to provide additional resources:

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.

4) Family Hub - events timetable: this section contains the timetable for the current term's workshops and events.  Further information is available by emailing Wendy Zadigue, our Family Liaison Officer, on

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.
