Our Aims and Values


"Happily Learning Together"


This simple phrase encompasses our ethos. We strongly believe that for children to learn they need to be happy. If you've already visited our school you will know that the children are happy, friendly, polite and well-behaved.


They are a joy to work with and our staff love coming in each day almost as much as the children do! And it's not just the children who learn; staff at all levels are constantly developing , seeking higher qualifications and working with other schools to share best practice to try to make our school even better.


We have five broad aims, which are to:

  • Provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment
  • Value others and ourselves
  • Give everyone the opportunity to achieve their full potential
  • Prepare children for their future
  • Put the school at the heart of the community

Olney Infant Academy is part of the Inspiring Futures Through Learning (IFtL) Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), which comprises of ourselves, Olney Middle School, Two Mile Ash School, Chestnuts Primary School, Whitehouse Primary School, Fairfields Primary School, Ashbrook School, Holmwood School, Heronshaw School (all in Milton Keynes) and three further primary schools in Corby.

The Trust is committed to developing a family of schools whose purpose is to inspire the futures of their children through learning, who share the same values and ethos:


  • Where independent, articulate thinkers and learners have the confidence to achieve their ambitions.
  • Where the team is constantly in the pursuit of development and excellence every day.
  • Where teachers of the future come to learn and develop their careers.


We are creating schools where children, staff and the wider community thrive in an atmosphere of opportunity and challenge, where they learn with and from each other, and where their ideas are valued and respected so that they develop. We are inspired to achieve excellence in all we do.
