Welcome from the Headteacher, Peter Wain MA
I am proud to be Headteacher of Portfields Primary School, a post I have held since January 2015.
Arriving at the school I was deeply impressed by 2 things above all else - the behaviour of the children and the commitment of the adults.
These 2 things contribute hugely to the success of the school - children want to learn and adults want to teach!
I am building my vision for Portfields on that. Our visit by Ofsted in October 2017 confirmed my "high expectations for the school" and how "pupils are excited and articulate when talking about their school."
I always aim to make Portfields the best it possibly can be. We are a long way there and we have a long history of high achievement, I want to go further though, and make ours a school that works in partnership with its parents and its community, one that prepares its children fully for the world of the 21st century and one where children develop that love of learning that will stay with them throughout their lives.
