Welcome To Henleaze Infant School

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

At Henleaze Infant School we aim to create a happy, engaging environment where children develop an enthusiasm for learning, feel valued as an individual and enjoy coming to school. We understand that learning is most successful when schools and families work together in partnership. We have an open-door policy, actively inviting families to share knowledge of their child at home as well as discovering more about their child’s time in school. To ensure our strong partnership with parents continues during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have developed a variety of digital solutions to ensure strong links.

We have high expectations of children’s social and academic development. We strive to 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 and aspirational. For more information about ELLI and our Henleaze Infant’s curriculum see our curriculum page. We know the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted our community in different ways and have adapted our curriculum to respond to this. Please click here to find out about the principles behind our ‘recovery curriculum’. 

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. We are a child-centred, happy school where all staff, parents and governors are committed to supporting the best possible opportunities for our children.

We are really proud of our School and welcome visits from families wishing to see Henleaze Infant School in action. During the current Covid restrictions we are running small tours of five people.  To book a place please telephone the school on 01173772442.  We also ask you to visit our virtual tour to see clips of school life and hear from children, staff and governors.
