The Village school is situated in the small, friendly village of Coleshill, close to Amersham.
Founded in 1847, the school is a Voluntary Controlled Church School in the Parish of St. Mary’s, Amersham. The spacious building is set in its own grounds, consisting of a large playground and gardens. A recent extension to the school has added additional education space. The school is well equipped with latest information technology and has several well used PC’s.
There are currently 56 pupils attending the school.
The aim of the school is to foster, in a caring environment, the all round development of each child, encouraging at the same time self- confidence, self-discipline, responsibility and courtesy. Children follow a graded reading scheme and care is taken to hear each child read daily.
The mathematics curriculum is balanced and varied, and every opportunity is taken to practise the skills the children have learnt. The curriculum includes science, history, geography, music, art, design and technology, information technology, physical education and religious education. Children with special needs are given individual support.
The Head Teacher - Mrs Julie Field officially took over in January 2018.
School News - Spring 2018
Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to the staff, pupils, parents, governors and local community for making me feel so welcome. I am extremely proud to be the headteacher of Coleshill Church of England Infant School and am looking forward to a wealth of new and exciting adventures we have ahead of us.
I am extremely proud to be able to announce that the school has been awarded an “Outstanding” grade by the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) for the positive impact its Christian ethos has on pupils, following an inspection on Wednesday 7th February. The inspectors found that: “Coleshill Infant School is unstinting in the support, care and challenge it provides for all members of its community…..School staff live out the Christian belief that everyone is important and that social, emotional and wellbeing issues are as important as academic outcomes. The resulting supportive, trusting relationships contribute to exemplary pastoral support.” I am absolutely delighted by the report which has truly reflected the values and aspirations of the school. I would to thank the children, staff, parents, governors and the local church for all the hard work and support which has allowed us to achieve this.
The children have had fun taking part in several special events this term, including Spirituality Week, Citizenship Week and Chinese New Year Day. During Spirituality Week, the theme this year was Creating Character, and the children were given opportunities to reflect on respect, responsibility and resilience. At the end of the week we were visited by John Hardwick from Barnabas who engaged all the children in an enjoyable mix of drama, song and stories. Year 2 also attended a multi-skills morning at Dr Challoner’s High School where they had a chance to try out a range of sporting activities along with several other schools from the area.
We have a range of exciting activities planned for this term including World Book Week at the end of February and Round the World Day in March.
The children will be presenting mums and grandmas with flowers at All Saints’ Church on Mothering Sunday, March 11th at 9 a.m. and our end of term service is on Thursday, March 29th at 11 a.m. at All Saints’ Church. Do please come along if you are free on those days.
