We offer a wide range of extra curricular activities at Ingleton. As well as sports clubs, we have clubs for keen gardeners, chess players, musicians, writers, computing experts and creative crafters. Some clubs take place after school, while others are held during lunch times. Some run all year, while others change half termly. Read all about our clubs in the termly letter.
PLAYTIME & OUTDOOR LEARNING
Outdoors we are blessed with very attractive grounds which include two playgrounds, extensive fields, a wood, garden, polytunnel and raised beds. We appreciate wonderful views of Ingleborough but our site can be chilly and windy – everyone needs to bring warm, outdoor clothing to school.
Within reason, we do like to embrace all weathers – “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.
Our youngest pupils access outdoor learning most of the time and our older classes have access to our lovely grounds when appropriate to their learning. We also have outdoor classrooms to enhance our teaching.
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. These include; football, tag rugby, hockey, netball, basketball, athletics, orienteering, swimming, dance and gymnastics. We work with the local community to employ experienced sports coaches to teach alongside us to give children the best possible experience. We are also lucky to have Mrs Mercer from Settle College to enhance the sporting experiences we offer.
We endeavour to enable all children to enjoy competitive sport at many different levels. We have inter-house competitions within school, which are led by Year 6 house captains and inter-school competitions within the local area. In recent years we have also participated in county level competitions including; North Yorkshire Quad Athletics Finals and the North Yorkshire Cross-country Competition.
For 3 years running we have achieved the School Games Gold Sports Mark.
