Dear Parents & Children,
A very warm welcome to our school website!
It is safe to say that the past year has been a challenging year for everyone globally with the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world. Children's education throughout this time has had to establish new routes in order to reach the same destination. In order for our children's education at Knowle to continue to blossom, staff have worked tirelessly through this pandemic to serve our school community. Our COVID catch up work during lockdowns and post lockdowns has ensured that gaps in learning for all of our learners are addressed and plugged with urgency. Following academic research (Education Endowment Fund) and government advice, leaders at Knowle have invested heavily in supporting that catch up of learning through...
A tenacious and rigorous approach has been taken by leaders in school to ensure that no child is left behind or misses out.
We are all very proud of the school and its children who, continue to go from strength to strength. At Knowle, we provide a quality, broad and balanced curriculum that challenges every learner. Our staff are passionate about getting the very best out of every child ensuring that we maximise every learning opportunity and resource to our disposal. Walking around our school, it is evident that Knowle is a vibrant, energetic learning environment whereby our children are enthused about their learning. We provide opportunities for our children to take risks and challenge themselves in their thinking as well as in their actions.
Over the past 5 years, Knowle has been rapidly raising standards and expectations. Staff constantly seek to improve their practice and in doing so provide your child with the best opportunities to progress in their learning. We are pleased to say that in June 2021 we were awarded a Good rating from Ofsted. Knowle is a unique and special school with the children at its heart. We create lasting memories for our children and ensure that their learning journey is enjoyable and rewarding.
As a school we pride ourselves on our warm and approachable nature. We operate on an open door policy that enables parents/carers to feel part of our school community. We love a challenge at Knowle and like your children, we learn best when we are challenged to improve.
We wish a happy and successful year and future to every one of our children.
Mr. Cameron Lancaster (Head Teacher)
