We have been published in the Parliamentary Review.
Representatives across a wide range of sectors come together in September's Parliamentary Review to voice their strengths, challenges and expert opinions collectively. With the long-term future in mind, the prime minister's foreword centres on securing the foundations for our future productivity by improving school standards, transforming technical education and delivering infrastructure for growth. These plans for the future are just some of the views echoed throughout The Review from industry leaders from across the country.
After a year of progress for the education sector, The Parliamentary Review outlines areas of excellence and relevant issues for teachers, communities and policymakers alike. These will be featured alongside commentary on the sector from former education secretary and Review chairman Lord Blunkett.
Director of The Parliamentary Review, Craig Wilmann, has emphasised that once again The Review will provide an "indispensable guide to industry best practice, demonstrating how sector leaders have risen to the challenges faced in the current political and economic environment.

Debate Mate Trip to London!
On Monday 21st May 2019, a selection of our Year 5 and 6 children travelled down to London to compete in the Primary finals for the Urban Debate League 2018. They worked incredibly hard all year to be shortlisted to compete in the finals and made Irk Valley incredibly proud! It was a day enjoyed by all as I am sure you can see from the pictures!
We have recently received our Healthy Schools Bronze award.
