Welcome to Portadown Integrated Nursery and Primary School

Pastoral Care Survey

We regularly review our school policies to ensure they are up to date and appropriate to the needs of the school community. It is time to look again at the Pastoral Care Policy.

As part of this it is important to collect the thoughts and views of parents and pupils. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey by clicking the appropriate link below.

Barack Obama supports Integrated Education

US President Barack Obama has reiterated his support for integrated education on his visit to the UK.  On Saturday (23 April 2016) Mr Obama addressed a gathering in Westminster of young people from all parts of the UK.  He described integrated education as “one of the most encouraging developments in Northern Ireland”. 

The President was responding to a question from Cliona McCarney from Belfast who asked how his successor might continue to support the peace process in Northern Ireland. Mr Obama described it as a “story of perseverance” and said “folks are working these issues through”.

He added: “One of the things that you’ve seen in Northern Ireland that’s most important is the very simple act of recognising the humanity of those on the other side of the argument. Having empathy and a sense of connection with people who are not like you. The forces that lead to the most violence and the most injustice typically spring out of people saying ‘I want to feel important by dividing the world into us and them…And fighting that mentality and that impulse requires us to begin very young with our kids.

“One of the most encouraging things in Northern Ireland is children starting to go to school together and having a sense that we’re all in this together, as opposed to it’s us against them.”


Portadown Integrated Nursery and Primary School is awarded the ECO Schools Green Flag Award again. Well done everyone.

Excellence in Education

Portadown Integrated Nursery and Primary holder of the prestigious Excellence in Integrated Education Award

Article 3; The best interests of the child must be a top priority in all things that affect children.



At Portadown Integrated Nursery and Primary School children learn about rights through the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). We believe that by understanding their own rights children learn to appreciate and uphold the rights of others. Children are taught to understand that with rights come responsibilities.

Our playground and Classroom Charters are used to guide the schools vision and helps us to think about the Rights and Responsibilities we all have in our community. 

Children and adults work together to recognise and act upon the rights of the child with respect to the school, the local community and the wider world.

Pupil Voice

At Portadown Integrated Nursery and Primary School we encourage the children to actively participate in their own learning and to be a part of the school decision making process.  School Council representatives from each class meet together to discuss, negotiate and make decisions that will affect the whole school.
