Welcome to Irk Valley Community School.


Irk Valley is a large primary school close to Manchester’s city centre. We are lucky enough to serve a culturally diverse community and we enjoy learning from each other in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

This is a warm and friendly school with a family feel, where our children are happy and safe. The staff team work very hard to ensure all children reach their potential.

Our motto at Irk Valley is REACH (Respect, Excellence, Aspiration, Cooperation and Happiness). These values underpin all aspects of school life. 

I have the highest expectations for the children – I believe they can achieve great things, if they are equipped with the right skills and attitudes.  Here at Irk Valley, we guide the children to reach the highest academic standards whilst also developing a love of learning which will stay with them long after they have left us. We prepare them for the next stage in their education and for their lives by nurturing their skills and talents, encouraging them to pursue their interests and supporting them to become good citizens.

I believe that learning should be fun. At Irk Valley, we provide a range of exciting educational experiences to bring learning to life. We ensure that every child is actively engaged in lessons.

I hope you find our website easy to navigate.
