Portway Junior School is a friendly and popular school in Allestree, Derby. There are currently approximately 350 pupils and over 40 staff.
The children are in mixed ability classes although all year groups put the children into ability groups for numeracy and literacy lessons. We value the high standards achieved by the pupils here, however we equally recognise the importance of their social, moral, spiritual, cultural and emotional development.
Parents value the high quality teaching and learning and the variety of extra-curricular clubs and activities available including football and other sports and music. We have good links with Cool Kids (an after school club) and they collect several children each day to take them to the club.
We are proud to be a forward looking school and one that aims high in all areas. We have achieved the following awards: Eco Schools Silver Award and Active Mark.
