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.

Our value for April is Courage; mostly ably demonstrated by Ms Donaghey who abseiled down the Northampton Lift Tower to raise £300 for charity. Well done!
We are delighted to announce that Year 6 have been awarded Master Class status by Renaissance Learning who manage the Accelerated Reader programme. This is a rare and prestigious award which only 12 primary schools nationally have achieved so far this year. This award recognises the children’s achievement and dedication to reading. Every child reads for an average of 25 minutes a day and consistently achieves 90% plus in the comprehension quizzes.
All the Year 5 and 6 children entered the Radio 2 Chris Evans short story writing competition. There were over 123,400 entries. We are very proud that two of our students, Hermione and Sam, have had their stories shortlisted for the final.
