If the answer is yes, then Ivy Lane Primary School is the place to be!

Ivy Lane School is a two-form entry Primary School in the centre of Chippenham, Wiltshire and is part of the Pickwick Academy Trust. We believe in ‘Learning for Life’, aiming to equip every child with both the skills to be successful beyond their primary years and a life-long appetite for learning. The school community really is a special place to learn. Our recent Ofsted Jan 2022 recognised this; ‘Teamwork is central to the work at Ivy Lane to ensure pupils are educated and nurtured well.’

Our school values of ‘Learning, Environment, Others and Ourselves’ underpin our ethos. We place a huge importance on outdoor learning and are very lucky to have Forest Schools Provision. We also have an extensive provision of social and emotional support for our children. In April 2022, we opened our onsite nursery classroom, extending our school age range to 3-11.

We are looking to appoint a new member to join our dedicated lunchtime staff team as an MDSA/Kitchen Assistant at Ivy Lane Primary School.

The jobholder must demonstrate a commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.  This will involve undertaking annual Safeguard training and using school reporting systems for any Safeguard concerns.

Visits to the school are strongly encouraged so you can get a flavour of our fabulous school!  Please contact Mrs Kerry Nowosielski (Admin Officer) on 01249 652556 if you would like to arrange a visit.
