Welcome to Irlam Endowed Primary School.

Hello, my name is Miss Da Costa and I am the Headteacher, and this special page has been set up to ensure you have all the information you need prior to us welcoming you and your child in September 2020.

We are all so excited to meet our new Early Years pupils, and cannot wait to help you all get ready for ‘big school’.

Unfortunately, these are strange times this year and our usual list of induction activities cannot take place as normal at the moment. We usually have lots of opportunities to meet each other, visit school and answer any questions you may have. However, this will need to be done a little differently this year. No worries though, we love being creative and a challenge, so we decided to  set up this webpage. Please keep checking here and also look out for texts, and we assure you that we will make everything as smooth as possible.

We will share information about meeting teachers, school day, uniforms etc, from the start of June 2020. This is so we are releasing the latest information. You will also be able to collect a pack from school, when advised to do so.

So everything you need to know will be shared on these pages, but if you have any other questions, do not hesitate to email me at (This is the same address to send any evidence linked to your acceptance too please.)

Don’t forget to let us have your mobile number please, if you haven’t already, so we can keep you updated by text too.

To get you started, please feel free to look at the rest of our website. Look at the school prospectus, policies, the learning activities etc. If you do not know the school well, it will give you a great overview of Irlam Endowed.

We cannot wait to meet all our new families, as well as siblings of children we already have in school. Thank you so much for choosing Irlam Endowed, we know your child will be very happy here, and we cannot wait to welcome them to the Irlam Endowed family.


Keep safe and well,

Miss Da Costa and all the staff
