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