Welcome to the Foundation


A super start to the New Year as we offer a warm welcome to the new children and their families to our school. We know this will be the start of a great partnership as we all work together.

Already our new pupils have worked very hard to make new friends and are learning the Class room routines.

School Council, Eco Representatives and Sports Representatives have been elected by the Class. They   already they have had many ideas to take to the Whole school Meetings including planning Charity events   which encourage everyone to care for people in and beyond the School.

Our Topics this Term will include Stories with familiar settings, Nursery Rhymes, Traditional Stories, Stories from the Bible, Keeping Safe, Understanding Values and Customs and Places around the World e.g. Chinese New Year

Our Counting   Skills and Phonics programmes have got off to a great start with children enjoying their learning in the indoor and outdoor classroom.

Remember to borrow a Reading book from the large selection in the entrance porch to share at home with your child ( if possible try to share a book every day …it really makes an impact) just sign and date the slip in the cover then return so someone else can borrow them. Books without words are a valuable resource to share as you and your child can imagine a new story each time you work together as you look for the picture clues developing   understanding and vocabulary.

Each child has been issued with a book containing the resources we use in Class e.g. 100 square, phonics, Tricky words, alphabet etc. Keep this at home and refer to it  throughout the year.

Please bring named P.E. kit on Monday to take home Friday.

This term will be packed with learning as the children continue their Learning Journey at Kneesall C. of E. Primary School .In addition we are looking forward to joining in the many wonderful whole school and after school events that have been planned for this Term.

Thank you,

Mrs .Hutson/ Class Teacher

Mrs-S-Ilett-Coupe-Head-TeacherWelcome to Kneesall Church of England Primary School! We are a small, rural Church school where every pupil knows how valued they are and all are encouraged to reach their full potential. We provide a secure, yet stimulating learning environment that enables pupils to be inspired and enthused. Our staff lead by example and our Christian ethos is evident in everything we do. We encourage our pupils to care for each other, for their community and for the world in which they live. Their spiritual, moral, cultural and social development is as important to us as their academic attainment.

Kneesall School has served our village for more than 150 years and is an important part of our local community, as well as the wider community. We take an active part in village life through our strong links with our church and the local villages.

Our beautiful school grounds provide plenty of opportunities for environmental studies, structured playtimes, development of expressive arts and areas for reflection. The outdoor equipment and playing field are a real asset to school and pupils are encouraged to develop their physical abilities.

We provide a rich and meaningful curriculum which sets out to educate the ‘whole’ child and creates opportunities for each and every one to experience success.

We know how important it is to have strong links between home and school in order for good learning partnerships to be forged and we greatly value these partnerships.

We would love you to come and visit us so that you can find out more about our school, our values and the special place that is Kneesall C of E Primary School.  All of our information is on the website but if you would prefer paper copies they are available from the Office.
