Description of the school

This is a larger than average sized primary school. Pupils’ home circumstances differ widely but a high proportion live in areas that are socially disadvantaged. Very few pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds. When they enter the Nursery, children’s skills vary but are mostly below the expectations for their age. A smaller than average proportion of pupils has learning difficulties and/or disabilities. Partly due to the closure of another local school, Hoyland Common has this year absorbed 46 extra pupils across all year groups. The school moved into a new building in February 2007. It provides breakfast and after-school clubs. A children’s centre is due to open in April 2008. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
