Settle CE Primary School is a Local Authority state maintained primary school and has provision for pupils age 3-11 years. The school is classed as a 'small primary school' as it has approximately 200 pupils on roll.
The Head Teacher is Mr Richard Wright, who has served in this capacity since his appointment in the summer of 2003.
The school has had five Ofsted inspections since Mr Wright's appointment and each one has been successful.
Currently the school is classed as at least GOOD in all areas and over the years there have been significant areas of outstanding strength that have been recognised.
Of special note is our strong leadership, caring ethos and proactive support of pupils with special educational needs and disability. We have also celebrated outstanding provision in the Early Years and been praised for our comprehensive, much valued wrap around care provision.
Our teaching and learning standards have consistently been at least on a par with National standards since 2004 and where there are any areas for development the Headteacher and school team (governors, teachers and support staff) are quick to put things right. (Please see the SAT results page for an analysis of current school performance).
Settle CE Primary School is a happy school with valued parent-school relations and is generally considered to be one of the best primary schools in the North Yorkshire County as well as one of the most popular in the North Craven Area.
