A warm welcome is extended to all who join us at Portland Primary School. We trust you and your children will have a rich and fulfilling time with us and we hope to see you often, both in the classroom and at various functions as we work in partnership to provide educational excellence for your children.
At Portland Primary School we provide a supportive, inclusive learning environment which enables students to realise their intellectual, physical, social, emotional and creative abilities. We aim to empower our students to become resilient, lifelong learners who are positive and active members of their school and wider community.
Portland Primary School models the values of respect, participation, reliability, fairness, responsibility and cooperation. Through these values, students, staff and parents work in partnership to achieve educational success.
With an enrolment of around 90 students, we are able to offer a caring ‘family’ environment. Our buildings allow for spacious classrooms, each with computer banks and access to up to date technology such as Interactive Whiteboards and iPads, a well-equipped library with a bank of computers, multi-purpose room, art room, music room and LOTE room. Expansive grassed and asphalt play areas include two basketball and two netball courts, rebound walls, oval, soccer field, undercover sandpit, two adventure playground areas and two undercover courtyards. These facilities are complemented by an outdoor learning centre with kitchen garden/orchard and pleasant flower gardens and treed areas. Our location also provides the school with a unique opportunity to utilise community resources such as the town library, pool, foreshore precinct, sporting facilities and local businesses.
Portland Primary has staff who are enthusiastic, dedicated, experienced and professional. All staff are committed to best practise teaching and learning, catering for individual differences to ensure educational success for all students. An active and enthusiastic School Council provide much valued service and support to the whole school community.
Parental involvement is an integral and vibrant part of school life. Portland Primary has an ‘open door’ policy and parents are encouraged to participate in all aspects of school life.
