School closed at the end of the week for most children

The Government has announced that all schools in England will be closed at the end of this week for a vast majority of pupils. This will include our Nursery. Details are still emerging around provision for children of key workers and for vulnerable children. I will update you on this tomorrow.


We have made work packs for the children to take home which have already gone out for a few year groups. The rest will go out tomorrow. If you are in isolation, please send a safe adult to school to collect a pack. Our teachers will share their work emails with you so you can email them questions about their learning only. They will not be able to answer any questions beyond the learning.


Over the next day or two we will update the class pages on our website with all the information you need if you can’t get anyone to school.


We will post updates on the following platforms:

  • Messages via MarvellousMe
  • Our website
  • Our School Facebook Page @PortsdownPrimary
  • Our Nursery Facebook Page @PortsdownNursery
  • Text messaging


We will continue to monitor the situation and will update the platforms above. Everyone here at Portsdown wishes you all the best at this difficult time.
