A very warm welcome to each and every one of you.  I am delighted to lead Ivy Bank, a fantastic school which offers exciting and relevant life-long learning experiences in a safe and nurturing environment. Ivy Bank Primary is a large school located in the south of Macclesfield and has recently become a member of The Aspire Educational Trust, a multi-academy trust, working alongside 12 other like-minded academies on the common themes in school improvement and development. Our aim is to provide a secure, exciting and positive environment in which all children can reach their full potential and become responsible, trustworthy and caring members of society.  This website offers a picture of life at Ivy Bank illustrating the vision and values we work hard to deliver.  

We offer skilled teaching and a broad, balanced, creative curriculum concentrating on the education of the whole child, whilst English and Maths are seen as vital life skills and given appropriate emphasis. We have high expectations of children’s work and behaviour, striving to provide a high-quality learning environment in which all children at Ivy Bank can flourish.

We work in close partnership with parents as we fully recognise the efforts you have made in helping your child to learn long before they come to our school. We believe that every parent should be informed of their child’s progress regularly and encourage you to become involved in your child’s education in whatever way you feel confident to do so.


With best wishes,

Mrs Sarah Gill
