Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to our new school website. I hope that you enjoy reading through the pages and the site easy to navigate to find the page and information that you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

Settle CE Primary is a forward thinking, dynamic school that currently caters for children ages 3-11. Currently we have 204 pupils , including Nursery Provision for up to 26 pupils. 

We greatly value the relationships we form with our children and families and the role we have in supporting our local community.We always  expect the children to come first in any decision making and for them to always be treated with respect, empathy and kindness.  We work hard to provide an extensive range of opportunities for the children. We want our children to feel safe, to enjoy learning and to develop as confident strong  individuals .

Creative, Critical and Positive thinking are at the essence of our curriculum. We strive for high academic standards but believe that education does not always mean qualification. Our children are encouraged to develop life skills (cooking,  first aid, financial management and STEM Learning (Science Technology Engineering and Maths) and personal attributes that include resilience and self mastery. 

We have a very successful Early Years Foundation Stage (teacher led Nursery and Reception) and we offer eligible working families 30 hours of free childcare on site as well as a breakfast club (open from 7.30am) , after school club (3.30-5.30pm) and holiday club (Easter and Summer) for busy parents at affordable prices. 
The school offers a wide range of sporting activities and outdoor learning opportunities too, making the most of it's location in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. 

The school has a strong Christian ethos and prides itself on it's Care and Guidance and promoting Christian Values.  As a Christian School we have a strong focus on promoting  fairness, treating others as you would like to be treated, demonstrating a capacity for forgiveness and respecting other faiths, beliefs and cultures. 

The school seeks to be pupil and parent friendly - there is no 'them and us'. I expect us to all work together, sharing mutual respect and a desire to always do the right thing for the School and it's children.

Thank you you for visiting our site and for showing an interest in our school.

With best wishes

Mr Richard Wright
