Ivy Bank Primary is a large school located in the south of Macclesfield. 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.

We have an enthusiastic, highly motivated staff committed to a caring, child-centred ethos. We offer skilled teaching and a broad, balanced, creative curriculum concentrating on the education of the whole child, whilst Literacy and Numeracy 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.
