Welcome to the Portsmouth Education Partnership (PEP) website. The PEP brings together all Portsmouth schools and partners to improve attainment and opportunities for all children and young people across the city. Our key priorities are to drive:

  • Inclusion – we create an environment that is welcoming to all children and young people, and we do not give up on any pupil.
  • Attainment, expectations and aspirations – we have high aspirations for all of our children and help them and their families see what they could achieve.
  • Teacher recruitment and retention – Portsmouth is seen as a place of choice for the very best education professionals, where continuous learning is fostered, career ambitions met, and workloads kept manageable.

This summary of the PEP strategy outlines the vision, values and priorities of the partnership. The full Education Strategy is available here. (Appendix: Education Strategy data.)

This website is aimed at giving all those working in education in Portsmouth useful information, support and resources related to all education organisations working in Portsmouth. To share information about relevant resources, support or opportunities email [email protected]
