Welcome to the Foundation Stage


The Summer Term sees Foundation welcome our new F1 children and their families. Our Foundation Stage children are very excited about helping you settle in and build new friendships. Miss Gray and I very much look forward to seeing you grow as you begin your Learning Journey. What will you achieve this year?

This Term promises to be another exciting learning experience with many fantastic opportunities. Foundation Stage prides itself on being very imaginative which has led to our new topic:

Twisted Tales

This will be supported through traditional fairy tales such as, Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, The Three Little Pigs and many more. The Twist… the children will become familiar with the traditional endings to many of the tales but they will create their very own. Where will your imagination lead you?

In addition, our Early Years environment is designed to be adapted according to the interests of the children, providing spontaneous learning opportunities adhering to the core principles.

We also look forward to joining in the many wonderful whole school and after school events that have been planned for this Term and the F2 children are very much looking forward to our upcoming trip to Sherwood Pines.

Please bring named Swimming Kit every Monday (Foundation Stage 2 children only)

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

Thank you,

Miss S. Walsh Foundation Class Teacher

Miss V. Gray Teaching Assistant

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.
