Welcome To Henleaze Infant School

Headteacher Welcome

Welcome to Henleaze Infant School. I am very pleased that you have chosen to visit our website and hope it provides a useful starting point to finding out more about our school.  

At Henleaze Infant School we are committed  to creating a happy, engaging environment where children develop an enthusiasm for learning, feel valued as an individual and enjoy coming to school. We have strong ambitions for our children and understand that learning is most successful when schools and families work together in partnership. We actively involve families in sharing their knowledge of their child as well as discovering more about their child’s time in school.  We have developed a variety of digital solutions to support these valuable links.

We have high expectations of children’s social and academic development. To support this, we provide a rich and broad curriculum underpinned by a focus on our four key values (Respect, Feeling Safe, Happiness and Inclusion). We help children understand the skills of life-long learners through the use of ELLI characters, encouraging them to be curious, creative, resilient and aspirational. For more information about ELLI and our Henleaze Infant’s curriculum see our curriculum page.

We are a child-centred, happy school where all staff, parents and governors are committed to supporting the best possible opportunities for our children. During the past two and a half years I have been privileged to be part of the dedicated and passionate team who have worked tirelessly to ensure our school provides the best education and environment for our children to thrive. 

We are really proud of our school and welcome visits from families wishing to see us in action.   To book a place please see our school tours page or telephone the school on 01173772442.  We strongly encourage you to visit our virtual tour to see clips of school life and hear from children, staff and governors.

Henleaze Infant School shares its site and a connection with both Claremont Special School and Henleaze Junior School, enjoying shared events and collaboration opportunities for our children.
