Thank you to everyone who contributed in any way to our recent collection on Sunday 12th & Monday 13th July 2020 – through delivering bags around our parish, collecting the filled bags or by donating items.  Your help is very much appreciated. 

We have had such a tremendous response, with donations also coming from villages outside of our parish, as a consequence of which a second van had to be sent out from Darlington to ensure all of the bags could be collected. 

UPDATE:  We can announce that the amount raised for the Great North Air Ambulance Collection in July 2020 was an amazing £355.60 for both our school and the Air Ambulance.  Once again thank you to everyone who has supported this event.  We would not be so successful without your help and assistance.


Happy Birthday to all our pupils who are celebrating their Birthday this month:


1st April – Madison (Class 1)

1st April – Rosie (Class 3)

10th April – Charlotte (Class 3)

Head Teachers Update (February 2021)

Dear Parents and families,

Following the exciting news that all schools are to reopen fully on March 8th, I feel I must congratulate the pupils at Irthington Village School! All of the staff are so proud of the children; their enthusiasm and keenness to engage with the online lessons and complete all the work set has been amazing! To be honest, delivering daily literacy, numeracy, spelling and phonics lessons have been the highlight of our day. Seeing the pupils’ eager faces and checking in with the children each day has been just lovely, plus this has been a really effective way to deliver targeted key skills for English, Maths and Spelling.

A special mention must be made to all the parents, grandparents and other family members who have fully supported the children and staff to facilitate the home learning. This has not been an easy task by any measure, but you have all done a remarkable job! So, well done and thank you!
