About Coteswood House Pre-school

  • OUR FOUNDER

    Coteswood House was founded in 1937 by the late Miss E Gamble and she taught here for over sixty years. In 2001 Miss Gamble reported to the press: “I always say if you’ve a good beginning, you can go on from there and that’s what my old pupils always tell me I gave them.”

    Miss Gamble’s legacy continues under our existing Management team Mrs Anne Whitworth who has been with Coteswood House for over 20 years and Miss Lisa Wise who has been with Coteswood House for over five years. Both are passionate about the pre-school’s success.

  • EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES

    Each child is regarded as an individual with equal rights of access to all that the school has to offer. Equality of opportunity is encouraged and no pupil is discriminated against on the basis of gender, race, religion, language or ability. Where English is a second language, both child and family are supported according to their individual needs.

  • INCLUSION

    We treat all children with respect and we ensure equality of opportunity. Staff have positive attitudes and we are continually assessing and reassessing the way education is delivered, so that all children receive maximum benefit from the provision we offer, whatever their ability or disability.

  • SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS

    Children are given educational plans tailored to their individual needs. At the same time, these children are encouraged to take an active part in the whole of the school life.

  • EXCLUSION POLICY

    The school reserves the right to suspend or exclude a child should the need arise. Exclusion is not undertaken lightly and is only carried out after following our detailed Discipline and Complaints Procedure.
