​Welcome to our school website.

 ​

We are all very proud of our wonderful school community. We hope that our website offers you both information about our school and an insight into the many magical moments that we experience here on a daily basis.

There is a calm, warm, supportive and friendly feel as soon as you walk through the door. The biggest strength of our school is the relationships that are fostered here. 

'Everyone deserves the best, everyone deserves respect' is our school motto. We believe that everyone has special skills and talents and here at our school, we strive to provide every opportunity for every child to be the best they can be and truly grow in confidence and character.  Embedded in our school ethos are the important values of thoughtfulness, kindness and respect for all.

Our school is an exciting and inspirational place to be. Our curriculum is important to us where we strive to Make Learning Irresistible.'  Engaging, creative, and varied, it is enhanced with exciting theme days, visits and visitors, which create memorable experiences and help children develop a love of learning and a thirst for knowledge.  We aim to ensure that learning is fun, purposeful and challenging and recognise that the journey we make together provides us with a sense of pride and success, as much as the outcomes.

We have high expectations in all we do; behaviour, presentation, personal and academic progress, and we work hard to fulfil our ambitions.  Whether working together in lessons, putting on amazing productions, or taking part in clubs and sporting events, teamwork is important to us. At our school, you will find a community of people – Children, Staff, Governors and Parents - who are respectful and supportive of each other. We know that working hard together helps us to achieve our goals and provides us all with amazing and enjoyable moments along the way.

 

I look forward to welcoming you to Glasshoughton Infant Academy

Kind regards
