From the Principal, Steve Dunning
Welcome to Olney Infant Academy!
I hope you enjoy visiting our website, as we’re all really proud of our school which is rated as “Outstanding” by Ofsted in every respect. We have very high standards of achievement and a creative and exciting curriculum. Our children are polite, happy and well-behaved and unsurprisingly we have the lowest staff turnover of any school in Milton Keynes.
We were one of the first primary schools to convert to Academy status, in June 2011. From January 2017 we became part of the Inspiring Futures Through Learning Multi Academy Trust.
We continue to serve the people of Olney and the surrounding area as our priority, though our popularity means we receive applications from parents living up to twenty miles away. We are proud of our strong links with all sections of our local community. We aim to provide a high quality education within a secure, happy and caring environment. We have excellent facilities which only a school of this size can provide, including fabulous IT resources, a multi-purpose room with cooking facilities, a huge, covered outdoor classroom for Foundation children, a wildlife area and pond and extensive fields and playgrounds. The children also grow lots of fruit and vegetables which are used in our school kitchen as part of our hot and healthy school meals.
With our excellent staff and good staff/pupil ratio we believe that your child will get the best possible start to their education. The sea of happy children’s faces and the first-class results achieved are testimony to that; Ofsted reported in November 2015 that once again our standards of achievement in all subjects are “significantly ahead of national expectations”. We like parents to play an active part in their child's learning and to involve themselves in all aspects of school life.
We are open from 7.45am every day, with our Breakfast Club, and stay open until 6pm with our after-school club. In addition we have extra-curricular before and after-school clubs including football coaching, tennis coaching, French and Spanish lessons, streetdance, Digital Leaders, Garden Bug Buddies and Magical Maths Club. We are also one of only a small handful of schools which is able to offer stringed instrument tuition to Year 1 and 2 children (charged).
The very best way to find out about our school is to visit us while we are at work. If you would like to do so or require any further information please contact us. We are always proud to show people around the school!
