Welcome to Coalway Community Infant School.
I am extremely proud to introduce you to our school, which is a happy, thriving and successful Infant School located in the beautiful surroundings of the Forest of Dean. Our school has a warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere, and is a popular, well-established school with high expectations and standards of achievement. We have committed, caring and experienced staff, supportive parents and governors, and fantastic children!
At Coalway we have created a happy, caring, family atmosphere where the children feel secure and valued and are motivated to acquire attitudes to learning that will stay with them throughout their lives. We are all dedicated to doing the very best for your child. By working together we are able to provide the best possible start to the children’s education.
I hope that you find our website informative. If there is anything at all that you are unsure about or would like us to add, please contact us.

Hi, I’m Clare Brown and I’m a Governor on the Teaching & Learning Committee as well as a Teaching Assistant in school.
Did you know that over £4,000 has been invested on staff training this year?
In addition to individual specialist training, all staff have received training on ‘Zippy’s Friends’ (an emotional, social and mental wellbeing programme), ‘Talk Boost’ (an intervention designed to improve langauge and communication skills) and Autism awareness and inclusion.
Have a look at our last ‘Coalway Kids News’ to find out about our emotions, social skills and Zippy’s Friends work in school.
