Skipton Ings Community Primary and Nursery School

A consultation on the proposal to close Skipton Ings Community Primary and Nursery School from 31 December 2017 has now closed.

Public notice - closure of Skipton Ings school

Notice is given in accordance with section 15(1) of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 that North Yorkshire County Council, County Hall, Northallerton, DL7 8AD, intends to discontinue Skipton, Ings Community Primary and Nursery School, Broughton Road, Skipton, North Yorkshire BD23 1TE on 31 December 2017.


Following a request from the school’s governing body, we consulted on a proposal to close the school.

It is considered that the closure is necessary to secure the interests of current and future pupils from the school because of concerns about standards of teaching and learning and related concerns about low pupil numbers and the school’s financial position.

This decision has not been reached lightly, and not before alternatives have been considered, such as collaborating with other schools.
