About Lydford Primary School

Welcome 

 Lydford Primary School is a small, rural school, nestled in the heart of the village of Lydford on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. 

 Children at Lydford Primary School receive quality teaching and learning tailored to their individual needs, by staff who truly care about their welfare, safety, progress and achievement. 
  
The school is frequently praised for its friendly, welcoming, family atmosphere and, when children move on from Lydford Primary School, they are often complimented on their independence, resilience and fantastic attitude to learning. 
 
Lydford Primary School is part of the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust.    
We believe that working together allows us to share our strengths and aim for excellence.  
 
At Lydford Primary School we have created a curriculum, which aims to develop the whole child; to build the skills and confidence to become a valuable member of the community and wider world and to own the tools to tackle life’s challenges with a smile. 
 
The school offers a wide-ranging curriculum that incorporates all aspects of the National Curriculum at Key Stages One and Two and the Foundation Stage. We are also able to provide educational visits to support and enhance learning; visits to school by local artists and theatre groups, sporting fixtures, community projects and residential visits for the older children. We are an Arts Mark Gold school, which means the Arts Council has recognised our dedication to the arts and using it to inspire confidence and creativity in pupils. 

We would welcome your interest in joining us as a member of staff. As part of the Dartmoor Multi-Academy Trust, not only will you have a supportive and collaborative work environment with plenty of opportunities for professional development and growth, but you will also have access to an array of benefits as follows: 

Smart Clinic/APL  

As part of the Trusts commitment to creating and sustaining a healthy working environment for all team members, we have put in place a range of benefits and programmes designed to support peoples physical, mental, and social health. The Smart Clinic is a specialist provider of occupational health and corporate well-being packages to DMAT. Their services ensures that our colleagues have access to market leading support, quickly, and conveniently.  

Cycle to Work Scheme  

Cycle scheme is an employee benefit that saves you 25-39% on a bike and accessories. You pay nothing upfront, and the payments are taken tax efficiently from your salary by your employer. You choose a bike, hire it for an agreed time, then wind its value down to a negligible amount. It's like a year-round sale, with interest free credit available in over 2,600 retailers nationwide. 

Tech Scheme 

The Tech scheme enables you to buy the best tech in a convenient way. You save between 2-12% depending on your rate of tax and spread the cost over 12 payments. It’s like a year-round sale with interest free credit. Choose products from Currys and now IKEA and once you have applied on the Tech Scheme website with your employer code and this has been set up with your employer, you will receive a redemption code to use online or in-store. 

 Local Government Pension Scheme (Peninsula Pensions) 

The LGPS is a national pension scheme for people working in local government or working for other employers that participate in the scheme. The LGPS is one of the largest pension schemes in the UK. It is a defined benefit pension scheme which means your pension is based on your salary and how long you pay into the Scheme. Your pension is not affected by how well investments perform. The LGPS provides you with a secure and guaranteed income every year when you stop working. 

 Members Hub | Teachers Pension 

As a member of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme, you are contractually enrolled into the Scheme from day one. You receive a guaranteed pension through the Teachers' Pension Scheme. It is a defined benefit scheme, registered with HM Revenue and Customs, based on your salary and service rather than investments - so there will be no nasty surprises when you come to claim your pension. Your pension will be a regular source of income when you retire - but you can also take some of it as a tax-free lump sum. You will join the career average arrangement and accrue benefits each year based on 1/57th of your pensionable salary including overtime.
