Welcome to Glasshoughton Infant Academy’s website. I hope you find it informative and that it gives you an insight into the daily experiences of the children. The Academy has a strong early year’s ethos and our aim is to encourage children to spend time developing a love of learning, a thirst for knowledge and build positive relationships. We welcome families to work together with the Academy to secure the best possible future for our young children and enable them to reach their full potential.
Through dedicated teaching and a caring pastoral system we help our young pupils to become confident, happy, independent and caring young people.
Our academic standards are high and consistently maintained from year to year. Our belief and motto is that ….
‘Everyone Deserves the Best and Everyone Deserves Respect’
This belief is extended to every member of our school community, so please come along and see for yourself. You will see that our displays are vibrant, a true celebration of the children’s achievements; you will feel the friendly atmosphere and watch the children learning through fun first hand experiences. I look forward to welcoming you to Glasshoughton Infant Academy.
Mrs Barbara Townend, Executive Headteacher
