Our Vision

At Glasshoughton Infant Academy our vision is for all children to strive for academic, creative, sporting and personal accomplishment through outstanding teaching and learning. We endeavour for all children to leave Glasshoughton Infant Academy as independent learners with self-belief and respect for all. We aim to instil a love for learning where everyone is challenged and encouraged to thrive and achieve as individuals, preparing them for their role as caring and active citizens. 

Shaping our curriculum are two drivers:

1) Aspirations – helping children to know their future possibilities and build aspirations for their lives.
2) Experiences – providing memorable experiences which help children to engage actively in their learning by providing real ‘hands on’ experiences to make links and sense of their learning, provided by visits and visitors.


Our school moto:

Everyone deserves the best, everyone deserves respect.

Our ethos:

At Glasshoughton Infant Academy children come first and our priority is to deliver high quality teaching and learning whilst at the same time making learning irresistible for our community of children.  Everything we do as a school is to ensure that the children achieve their very best.

Our aims provide a cohesive approach to learning through spiritual, social, moral, emotional, cultural, academic and physical development; ensuring they have the resilience to be life-long learners, make positive contributions to society locally, nationally and internationally.
