Headteacher’s Welcome!


Irlam Primary is a school in which every child is valued and given every opportunity to develop their full potential in a supportive and caring environment. A beautiful and harmonious family atmosphere pervades our school. We always strive for high standards and very good progress.

One of my favourite sayings is

 ‘Shoot for the moon! If you don’t reach the moon, you’ll land amongst the stars!’

We have a wonderful and experienced staff who pride themselves in their consistent hard work to provide an exciting curriculum which brings about good progress and high standards for our pupils.

We also have very supportive parents and our school works in close partnership with them in order to ensure that our children have the best possible start to their lifelong journey in education.

Our dedicated and committed governing body both support and challenge our school in all we do.

We boast an extensive range of after school activities which include basketball, streetdance, Fitness & Fun, art and craft, cookery, netball, spanish, Taekwondo and cross country.

We look forward to welcoming you,

Elaine Darwin

A word from our Head Girl

Hi everyone,

My name is Phoebe Stephens-Pantoja and I'm Irlam Primary School's new Head Girl! I'm really happy that I've been picked for this special job and my parents were so proud. I will try my hardest to make sure everyone is happy, and will try to make sure that our school is the best!

Thanks again,






A word from our Head Boy


My name is Thomas Bowmer and I'm very pleased to be the new Head Boy. I was surprised when I was chosen by the teachers. I'm proud to have been given this opportunity to be a good role model. I promise to do my best.
