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.


The following practices and procedures are in place so that we can make sure our children, families and staff stay safe:


  • Parents notified so they know to communicate test results to school.
  • If a child is vulnerable in any way, the Designated Safeguarding Lead will ensure that appropriate agencies are notified and will arrange for regular 'safe and well' checks via phone calls.
  • Those not engaging with home learning are to receive a phone call from a member of the school's senior leadership team to discuss the obstacles and support needed by the family. This may then be followed up by calls from the Parent Support Adviser.
  • Where children would normally receive additional support from SEND agencies, the SENDCO will make arrangements for those to continue via Zoom as long as the agencies engage.
  • If school have not heard from a child either on Google Classroom or via telephone after the first week of isolation, a home visit will be arranged by the Parent Support Adviser.
