Settlebeck School, Long Lane, Sedbergh, Cumbria, LA10 5AL

Practical Information

All students belong to a tutor group and spend time with their tutor twice a day. This person is their first point of contact for help during the school day and also for parents. In addition, each year group is managed by a Student Progress Leader.

Progress Leaders:

Year 7 & 8   Mrs Lynsey Goodyear

Year 9 & 10 Mrs Helen Waring

Year 11 Ms Sally Ingham

We have very strong links with our partner primary schools and these pupils have many opportunities to visit Settlebeck and to work with our teachers in their primary schools before they join us.

We also have good links with our local sixth-form colleges, ensuring a smooth transition after Settlebeck too. Many Settlebeck students go on to become Head Boy and Girl in their sixth-forms and we are told by the receiving colleges and schools that, at 16, our students are confident, well-adjusted, well-educated young people.

Pupil Premium

Like all schools in England, Settlebeck receives an extra amount of money, called the Pupil Premium, for students who receive free school meals. This is intended to be used to help overcome any disadvantage those students may face and help them achieve their potential.

At Settlebeck we use this money to provide one-to-one support, especially for literacy, to provide in-class support, attendance and family support, and to ensure that these students have access to all the opportunities we offer, for example trips abroad, music lessons etc.

We will always work with every one of our students to ensure they can play a full part in the life of our great little school, and that they achieve everything that they are capable of, and perhaps more than they believed they could. Every student here really does matter to us.

In 2012-13, the school received £8099 in pupil premium money.

In 2013-14 the school received £9900 in pupil premium money.

In 2015-16 the school received £19352 in pupil premium money.
