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.

Hello! I'm Claire Bushell and I have been a governor at Coalway Infant School for approximately 15 years. I am also a teacher in another local primary school. I became a governor when my two daughters attended Coalway; they have grown up now but I stayed on the governing body because I love the school community so much! I am a member of the Teaching and Learning Committee. In my role I have visited the school on many occasions for the learning walks, work sampling and afternoon teas with the school council. Every year, as a committee we also approve policies and review the progress of the School Development Plan and the attainment of the children. I am always very impressed by the childrens' learning and attitudes and the commitment and dedication of all the staff. As governors we always support, praise and challenge the school in everything they do.
