"Growing and learning Together - Settle Church of England Primary School is a place where all children are loved, valued and flourish to achieve their potential".  

Settle Church of England Primary is a forward thinking, dynamic school that currently caters for children ages 3-11. We have approximately 200 pupils on roll , including Nursery Provision for up to 26 pupils. We are currently in a formal federation partnership with Kirkby-in-Malhamdale Primary School with one governing body and an Executive Headteacher overseeing both schools.

Settle CE Primary 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.

In our Federation we greatly value the relationships we form with our children and families and the role we have in supporting our local communities.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 and seek to provide a broad and extensive curriculum provision though our Curriculum for Life opportunities. We want all our children to feel safe, to enjoy learning and to develop as confident strong individuals.

Creative, Critical and Positive thinking provides the essence of our curriculum at Settle CE Primary. We strive for high academic standards but believe that education does not always mean qualification. Children who come to our school will be encouraged to develop life skills (cooking,  first aid, financial management, self-defence and personal well being attributes that include resilience and self mastery. We also have considerable expertise in STEM Teaching and have won national awards for our work in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

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. 

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