The Village school is situated in the small, friendly village of Coleshill, close to Amersham.
Founded in 1847, the school is a Voluntary Controlled Church School in the Parish of St. Mary’s, Amersham. The spacious building is set in its own grounds, consisting of a large playground and gardens. A recent extension to the school has added additional education space. The school is well equipped with latest information technology and has several well used PC’s.
There are currently 56 pupils attending the school.
The aim of the school is to foster, in a caring environment, the all round development of each child, encouraging at the same time self- confidence, self-discipline, responsibility and courtesy. Children follow a graded reading scheme and care is taken to hear each child read daily.
The mathematics curriculum is balanced and varied, and every opportunity is taken to practise the skills the children have learnt. The curriculum includes science, history, geography, music, art, design and technology, information technology, physical education and religious education. Children with special needs are given individual support.
The Head Teacher - Mrs. Jenny Earp brings a wealth of experience from her previous teaching posts. Despite the demands of juggling family life with a very busy head teacher's existence, Jenny looks forward to leading the School into the 21st Century. Click here to email the Head Teacher
School News - Spring 2017
The children (not the adults!) have been disappointed that, to date, we have not had enough snow to play outside in this winter. However, we have had some wonderful frosty days and the children have taken some beautiful pictures of the frost-covered leaves and trees around the school, using their iPads. Also I captured a few stunning sunrises taken from the school garden before the children arrived earlier in the year. We always encourage the children to see the beauty of our surroundings and we are certainly very lucky in that regard being located in Coleshill Village.
We all enjoyed taking part in Unicef’s ‘Day for Change’ in February. The children were allowed to come into school in non-uniform and the teachers, in turn, dressed in school uniform, swapping classes to teach in different age groups. I have photographs, but would not dream of embarrassing them… A variety of activities took place to help children think about others who are less fortunate than themselves. The children brought donations to school, including money from their pocket money and we were able to send £86 to the charity.
Could I please remind parents with children in the village that the school playground and garden is out of bounds to the public when the school is closed. On several occasions, people have been seen playing in our outdoor areas and on the equipment, which has sometimes been left in disarray. The school grounds are owned by Bucks County Council and they have placed several notices around the school saying that ‘offenders may be fined £100’.
I would like to invite you to join us for a short end of term service on Friday, March 31st at 11 am at All Saints’ Church, Coleshill. Do please come along if you are free that day.
Looking further ahead, our annual May Fayre will be held in the school garden, weather permitting, on Saturday, May 13th.
A big thank you to everyone who supported the Christmas Bazaar. We are just counting the last few pennies, but we think we have raised approx. £3000. THANK YOU!
