Our School


The West Riding County Council opened Ward Green Primary School on 11th January 1943 on the Vernon Road site. It has been on an eventful journey from becoming a two site school in 1969 to undergoing extensive building work during 2009/10 to create a one site school on Vernon Road.

From October 2009 to November 2010, major building work took place to transform the two site arrangement into a one site school. The school was built to reflect eco strategies such as solar panels, recycled water and a biomass boiler.

Ward Green Primary school is a large primary school with 386 pupils on role. The new school site has a Foundation unit and 11 Year 1 to Year 6 classes.  Our admission limits are 50 children per year group, with a 56 place nursery provision. There is an independent private day care provider on site. 

In 2016 our school converted to academy status under Hoyland Common Multi Academy Trust https://www.hcacademytrust.education.

Below are some useful links for parents which will provide further information about our school:

Parent View Website Website: http://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/link-to-us 

"Parent View gives you the chance to tell us what you think about your child’s school.

Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. If your child is at a boarding or a residential special school, it also asks for your opinion on five aspects of your child’s boarding or welfare. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when."
