Welcome To Henleaze Infant School

Headteacher Welcome

‘Be kind, be curious, be you’

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 each child develops an enthusiasm for learning, feels valued as an individual and enjoys coming to school. We are ambitious 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 (Kindness, Curiosity, Respect and Community). 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. We understand the great capacity young children have for taking on  knowledge that capture their interest, so ensure our curriculum inspires them to develop their interest in individual subjects and the pioneers in these areas in the hope that our children go on to make their own mark in future. For more information about our Henleaze Infant 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 five 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 children to thrive. To get a feel for what this looks like in action, visit our class blog pages where current learning is shared with parents and children’s achievements are celebrated.

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 0117 377 2442.  We strongly encourage you to visit our virtual tour to see clips of school life and hear from children, staff and one of our 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.
