Irk Valley Community School


The importance of valuing others, listening to different viewpoints, taking care of belongings, manners, appreciating the diversity which exists in our community and beyond


The determination to reach the highest standards, every day.


The desire to grow and develop, achieving the best for ourselves and each other.


The knowledge that working with others, asking for help when needed and supporting others to develop are the foundations of growth.


The importance of joy in what we do, discovering our strengths and using them.



In Nursery we focus a lot on handling books, looking at pictures in the story, talking about who is in the story and repeating familiar phrases. We encourage children to act out familiar stories and use their voices to speak about the different parts and characters. It is a great help to your children if you read them a bed time story each night and practice these key skills that are very important this early on.
