Christmas Jumper Day 14 December

Christmas Jumper Day 14 December

On Friday 14 December 2018, we are inviting all pupils to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.
The whole school will be taking part by pulling on a Christmas jumper for a great cause.
We are asking pupils to make a suggested donation of £1, to help transform the futures of children in the UK and around the world.
All money raised will go to Save the Children.

Leading on Research and Partnership Working

Portswood Primary School is now one of only 3 schools in the country designated as a Research and Development Hub by NACE (National Association for Able Children in Education).  As a R&D Hub school we will invite fellow NACE member schools within our region to join the project. Participants will come together to share expertise, research and resources, and will collectively work to identify areas for further investigation and development.

Highlighting the excellent provision already in place at many NACE member schools, Caroline Gaitely (who will oversee the initiative in England and Wales) adds: “It is hoped that Hub activities will not only benefit schools through sharing existing good practice and considering the latest developments, but that the initiative will also lead to a wider national debate about how schools should support more able learners in the years ahead.”

Commenting on the initiative, NACE CEO Sue Riley, says: “The R&D Hubs will allow NACE to respond to the needs of schools, build capacity and add value, and encourage the sharing of expertise and participation in the context of local issues and priorities. We are delighted to announce our first three Hub schools, all of which are already highly outward focused and successful in their regional approaches to capacity building.”
