Hoylandswaine Primary School

Haigh Lane, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S36 7JJ




Interim Executive Board (IEB)

Hoylandswaine Primary is a small rural school that works hand-in-hand with families and plays an integral part in the local community. We ensure the environment is safe, healthy and inclusive and free from prejudice and discrimination where all feel valued and supported. 

Our aim is to equip children with an understanding of the wider world so that they engage effectively in modern society, moving forward with resilience, tenacity and confidence as independent thinkers who strive to become the very best they can be.  

We believe that as and when the children grow up and leave us, they will have gained solid social values and importantly, that they will have enjoyed their time at our school. 

The accountable body for the school is the ‘Interim Executive Board' for Hoylandswaine Primary School’ and it is made up individuals who are nominated or elected to represent the Local Authority because of the interpersonal or business skills they possess. We are a dedicated group of volunteers who invest a huge amount of goodwill and hard work into improving the education of every child in the school. We are often in and around school and would like to think that we are approachable by all parents.

The governors are the key strategic decision makers and vision setters and we have a legal responsibility for the overall accountability of the school to the Local Authority and Ofsted. The Interim Executive Board has a vital role to play in driving up school and pupil performance and ensuring that resources are used well to give every child the best possible education and it is our role to focus on these core functions.
