Irchester Primary School is a founder member of the newly formed Nene Valley Partnership Multi-Academy Trust. This is a partnership of 3 local schools, established in April 2019 which aims to provide excellence in education for the local community. The Local Governing Board needs to recruit 2 new members from the local community to join the existing Governors in providing strategic support to the school. No previous experience of being a school governor is necessary although a background in marketing or business would be beneficial to the Local Governing Board as a whole

Location: Irchester Community Primary School

Time commitment: Approximately 6 meetings per academic year (2 hours per meeting from 6pm) for the Local Governing Board plus membership of a sub-committee which also meets up to 6 times per academic year (dates and times vary)

Irchester Community Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, we expect all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.

That was the task faced by years 5 and 6 as they prepared their competition entries for the Primary Engineer Leaders Award. After speaking to engineers at school and online, children had to identify a problem at home, in the               community   or in school, invent a solution to solve it, produce a labelled illustration and write a letter persuading judges why their invention should be selected.

Well done to Joseph Hopper in 5AT who was selected as a winner for his age group for his idea of an earpiece with a sonar sensor that informs visually impaired people the location of objects around them. He received a trophy     recognising that fact at an award ceremony on June 27th at Coventry University. He also had his entry on display at the Public Exhibition held at the university.

Another twelve children were shortlisted, with six of these gaining a ‘Judges’ Highly Commended’ certificate:

Distinction – shortlisted: Ruby Salek, Gracie Harrison, Dennis Clarke, Geena Braich, Richard Fajinmi, Poppy Jones                                                                                       

Judges’ Highly Commended: Lewis Plant, Jaiden Baker-Hearne, George Swain, Orla Cameron-Cafferkey, Oliver Toyer and Holly Warwick-Selfe.

Thank you to parents Mr Crowson (Ben and Oliver Crowson) and Mr Dicks (Joshua Dicks) for coming in to talk to the children about the job and experiences in engineering at the start of this competition.
