What our parents think of Portway Infant School
These comments come from recent parent questionnaires sent out by school...
“I like the amount of outdoor learning time they are getting and Forest school seems
“I love Portway infants and the way it runs, great staff and the content you deliver is
amazing. Your school offers absolutely everything it blows my mind, from uniform banks to
resource making, from Forest school and mini play leaders it’s just brill. Well done”
“The teachers are very nice and seem to treat the children with respect. The environment that the children are learning in is wonderful - it feels like a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.”
“Very happy with how our child has settled into Portway and so glad we made the school our first choice when applying for a place.”
" Sending my children to Portway was by far the best decision I could have possibly made.”
Email received from a parent (October 2021)
We are extremely pleased with our experience so far with Portway Infant school.
The transition from nursery to school was very smooth even with Covid restrictions. The class teacher liaised with the nursery staff very soon after admissions were sent out to parents. The school sent out a welcome pack very early on which explained which teacher our daughter would have and arranged visit times.
Our daughter settled into her reception class from day one and looks forward to going to school every day.
As working parents we find the class dojo really helpful for communication with the teacher.
Due to Covid we didn’t actually get to visit schools before making a decision. Portway Infant school made an excellent video which was a tour of the school for parents to view. Which was very detailed. This was truly invaluable. It really helped us to get a feel for the school. When we actually got to see the school in person we were blown away by the outdoor space the children have and the forest school.
