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.

Clerk to the Governors
Hi, I am Sue Jordan, Clerk to the Governing Body a position I have held for the last 26 years. I also worked as School Administrator for 24 years before retirement. During this time I have been involved with the day to day running of the school and documenting the school’s many achievements and successes over the years. I continue to enjoy the good relationships within school and the childrens’ school life. Recently the Governors and myself were invited to school to meet with the School Council, followed by tea! During the afternoon, governors enjoyed a guided tour of the school, a question and answer session led by the children and the opportunity to share childrens’ workbooks. The children were proud of their achievements, passionate about their learning and excelled in explaining their topic and displays in their classrooms with confidence and enthusiasm. A highlight of the afternoon was children and governors taking part in the daily ‘Coalway burst’ exercise session. The Governors thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and congratulated the children for all of their hard work and thanked them for their kind invitation. The afternoon was a great success and we all look forward to the next time!
