Irthington Village School 

Irthington is a small rural primary school and the children are divided into three classes. We very much hope that your child will be happy and feel safe and secure in our school. In classes the children are divided into small teaching groups, ensuring that each child is challenged and progresses to reach his or her full potential. 

A variety of teaching and styles learning techniques are implemented to full effect. Each child is given as much individual attention as possible, which is one of the many advantages of a small school setting. The school requires children to undertake regular homework. Each child will bring home reading books and parents are requested to listen to their child read. 

We will endeavour to provide the best quality education and encourage your child to fulfil their individual potential. Irthington School provides innovative and holistic education, developing children’s potential for intellectual, spiritual and physical learning. We encourage positive action within the school and the wider community. We provide a safe, welcoming and compassionate environment where children, parents and staff are valued and respected.

Description

Children of all abilities are welcomed at Irthington. All pupils are taught as individuals and their personal achievements recognised. An important part of the school’s philosophy is the creation of an atmosphere where all individuals are valued and appreciated whatever their individual differences.

All children have an entitlement of access to the National Curriculum. Certain children may be exceptionally talented in some way and need greater depth and stimulation in their teaching. Other children may experience some form of difficulty within their learning, beyond that of other children of the same age. If we have any concerns about a child our first contact will be with his or her parents. When necessary the school is able to involve various outside agencies to support and advice on the individual needs of a certain pupil.

We are currently updating our website.  Therefore please contact us for the school’s special needs policy.
