The Curriculum at Irk Valley Community School


At Irk Valley, our school vision is REACH (Respect, Excellence, Aspiration, Cooperation and Happiness).  This drives all aspects of our school life, including our approach to the teaching of our school’s curriculum. 
We aim to deliver a world-class, broad and balanced curriculum. 

The curriculum comprises:

  • The statutory curriculum – these are the subjects set out in The Primary National Curriculum and the EYFS statutory framework.
  • The non-statutory curriculum – this is all other learning which we believe will enable children to thrive and reach their full potential.


There is a range of subjects and activities in place that help pupils acquire knowledge, understanding and skills. Mathematical, linguistic, scientific, technical, social, physical and artistic learning is evident throughout the curriculum. The curriculum is further enriched by a broad range of activities, such as special learning days, educational visits and extra-curricular learning. 

We strive to ensure that the content of the curriculum and the way it is delivered, help to meet the needs of our vibrant, Mancunian, urban and multi-cultural community, enabling children “to develop confident, successful, happy and caring individuals who love learning and are able to make a positive difference in the world.”
