Irlam Endowed Primary School

Welcome to the Irlam Endowed Family!

I am extremely proud to welcome you to Irlam Endowed Primary School as the Headteacher and current custodian of this special school. The school was established to serve the local working class community in 1834 during the industrial revolution and has had an enviable reputation ever since. For nearly two hundred years, the school has provided a high-quality education for local families.

The welfare and progress of our children is of the utmost importance to us. We believe all children have the right to an outstanding education which allows them to attain the highest possible standards both academically and personally. Our school motto is ‘Fulfilling Our Potential’ which applies to everyone within our school community: children, families and staff members.

Our four core values of Respect, Kindness, Resilience and Diversity are living forces throughout the school, from our curriculum we offer to the culture we maintain. No one is excluded from the Irlam Endowed family and everyone is expected to demonstrate our four values consistently. All children leave Irlam Endowed with knowledge and skills that empower them to become positive citizens in the local community and succeed in the wider world.

The curriculum is carefully crafted to be sequential and knowledge-rich whilst also being delivered in an exciting and engaging way. Our curriculum is continually enhanced through unique learning experiences to contextualise key concepts. The PE and sports programme available to children is excellent as we believe it is important to teach children about the importance of having healthy bodies and minds. Alongside sporting opportunities, every child has the opportunity to learn a musical instrument and develop an understanding and passion for creative arts too.  

Irlam Endowed is not just for children; we actively encourage parents and carers to become involved in the school community. The school’s is well supported by an active PTA and strong governing body, both of which support our teaching staff in providing the best educational opportunities possible.

I hope you enjoy your visit to our school website. If you would like further information, or to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
