Welcome to Ingleton Primary School

Ingleton Primary School was built in 1973 to a semi-open plan design and enjoys plenty of space and lots of natural light indoors. Outdoors we are blessed with extensive, attractive grounds and the school is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Our spacious learning environment, both indoors and outdoors, is respected and used by all in school and we aim, through our curriculum, to teach respect for our world and how we should care for it for future generations, as well as our own.

At Ingleton Primary School we strive to enjoy our learning and make it as much fun and as meaningful and relevant as possible. We offer children an excellent education in a safe, calm, creative, inclusive and stimulating environment. Every child is valued as an individual; we aim to nurture well rounded, respectful and resilient children who will develop skills for life-long learning. As we lead our children on their journey preparing them for adult life in modern Britain, we encourage them to be creative, unique, open-minded, tolerant and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community and the wider world.

At Ingleton our values permeate all areas of school life and are reflected by the school’s motto:

‘Tall oaks from little acorns grow.’

We hope that you enjoy the website and find the information you require. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.

“Ingleton Primary is a good school. Its care, guidance and support for pupils and its links with a wide range of partners are outstanding” – Ofsted




We have an “Early Morning Club” which begins at 7:50am. Mrs Denby runs the club and the children enjoy choosing from a range of fun activities.


“There is no such thing as bad weather, just unsuitable clothing!” We do play out in damp weather and we do go sledging on snowy days.


Here at Ingleton Primary School our aim is for all pupils to enjoy sport and be physically active. We offer a range of sports in PE lessons to enable children to experience a range of activities.
