Welcome to Irchester Community Primary School Website. It is with great pleasure that I introduce our school to you.
Irchester Community Primary School opened in September 2002 after the amalgamation of the former Infant and Junior Schools. There has been a school in the village since 1848. We have built on those traditions and are at the heart of a caring vibrant learning community in the centre of Irchester. Recently building work has expanded the school to accommodate 420 pupils taught in single year groups with two parallel classes in each year.
The staff and governors at Irchester Community Primary School are committed to providing the highest quality of education and care for every child in our school. We believe this is best achieved through creating an open and positive partnership between home and school. Through working together we are able to provide the personalised learning experiences required to ensure every child is happy, successful and can develop to the best of their ability.
As a values-based education school we promote the values of kindness, care and respect, creating a strong positive ethos and happy environment with high standards of behaviour, consideration and cooperation with others.
We are unique in having a dedicated science space in our primary school, known as Lab 13. The lab is managed by the pupils, for them to devise experiments driven by their curiosity and imagination, ably supported by our scientist in residence. We are a centre of excellence for primary science; providing training opportunities for local teachers and workshops for children.
I trust you will find this website useful and if you have any further questions then please contact us using the ‘Contact Us’ button or feel free to telephone or visit the school; you will be most welcome.

Year 2 have enjoyed visiting Irchester Country Park to discover the signs of spring. They have been tracking the changes in the Country Park throughout the year, making careful observations and keeping a record of what they have found.
Year 6 have survived SATs week – we are extremely proud of their positive approach and resilient attitude towards what were quite challenging tests. They can now enjoy preparing for their residential in June and Shakespeare performance at the end of the year.
