The Primary Department of KNES is delighted to welcome you to our website, which provides an insight into life at our school. We provide our pupils with a good quality education in a warm and friendly, family atmosphere. The caring ethos which permeates all aspects of school life promotes pupils’ personal development well and ensures they feel safe, secure and valued as individuals.
The staff is committed to provide a quality educational program that meets the needs of individual pupils in a safe environment where achievement is recognized and celebrated, staff collaboration is on-going and purposeful, and where a strong home, school and community partnership exists in order to ensure that all pupils develop into respectful, self-confident and responsible citizens.
The curriculum offered is the National Curriculum in England. It is pupil-centred. It identifies three primary aims of primary education:
- to enable the child to live a full life as a child and to realise his or her potential as a unique individual.
- to enable the child to develop as a social being through living and co-operating with others and so contribute to the good of society.
- to prepare the child for further education and lifelong learning.
Although we feel Literacy, Numeracy and Science are important, our curriculum is broad and stimulating, including specialist teaching in French, Music, ICT, Art and Physical Education. Our well-equipped classrooms provide a stimulating learning environment. Our aim is to educate the whole child through a rich curriculum with many stimuli in order to support an atmosphere of life-long learning. We value the broad and balanced curriculum which our staff offers and all children are able to access not only academic but creative and physical areas of the National Curriculum fully, so that they receive the highest standard of education.
In addition, we also offer a range of after school clubs daily offering hour-long sessions in Sports, Spanish, French, and Art and Enrichment clubs in the core subjects (English and Maths). To help working parents, we offer the services of school buses which run before and after school making pick-ups and drop-offs along the route to various destinations.
We hope that you enjoy visiting our website. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
