Parent Comms

At The Portsmouth Academy we encourage parents to support us in their child’s education by contacting us with any queries or issues.  For urgent issues please contact the school via phone on 0333 360 2200.  For general enquiries, email is probably best.  Please use info@theportsmouthacademy.org.uk if you do not know which member of staff to contact.  Please be aware that most staff will be busy teaching during the school day, and may not be able to read or respond to your email immediately.
