General Information

Common Road Infant and Nursery School serves the community of South Kirkby, an area of mainly social housing, ex mining history, situated in the semi- rural South East of the Wakefield area. The community is supported by a SureStart Children’s Centre on the school site and the school has recently lowered the age range to 2 years to support the much needed, 2 year old nursery government funded places. The area has a strong sporting interest, which is supported by the school as well as the local, South KIrkby Academy and Minsthorpe Secondary schools which are close by.


We are a very caring and supportive school providing a safe, secure environment where all children are valued. The whole staff work together as a team and are fully supported by our dedicated, skilled and talented leadership team to ensure that our children reach their full potential. No sky too high!

Staff have high expectations of the children and themselves. They work hard as a team to provide stimulating and high quality learning environments, they do this with enthusiasm and motivation in order to gain the best results for all children in school. The environment is supportive of all learners and children are encouraged to develop independence, self-esteem, confidence and to ultimately develop a life-long, love of learning.

Parents and Community

The school works hard in order to promote parental partnerships, to secure good relationships and involvement at all levels. Our parents are very supportive of their children’s learning and well-being and embrace the family learning opportunities provided in school.
