Coleham Primary School is situated in the historic town of Shrewsbury. It is a wonderful community school.

We are a popular school and are fully subscribed with around 420 children on roll, in 14 classes. There are two classes in each year group, so teachers plan and share expertise together.

Whilst our school is large in terms of the number of children, it has a close-knit feeling of a much smaller school, our Coleham family. The school grounds are vast, including a wonderful conservation area.

Coleham is a successful school where pupils achieve excellent results on all measures. We pride ourselves on ‘Creativity’ and a love for all the subjects in our ‘creative curriculum’, embracing special talents and celebrating all successes. We are all in pursuit of excellence whilst putting the children’s best interests at the heart of all decision making. We are a very dedicated whole school team who set high expectations for the children and have the children’s well-being, enjoyment and progress at the centre of our positive ethos.

We are committed to enriching the curriculum for our children through a wide range of after school- clubs, trips, performances, House competitions, community work and collaboration with other schools. It is important to us to offer as many opportunities as possible to the children and regularly draw on the local links and town centre history that sits on our door step.

We have a very inclusive approach. Our Pastoral Leader and Learning Mentor support children, parents and teachers within the school.

Pupils are well behaved, enjoy their learning and consider school to be an important part of their life, along with their teachers - of whom they value very much.

We are committed to continued professional development for all our staff and foster open, professional and respectful relationships. Our staff well-being and happiness is paramount as we see them as our greatest asset. Building strong relationships with everyone in our school community is our strength.
