Welcome to Knayton Church of England Academy


Like the smallest mustard seeds that become the largest trees, we are all nurtured, inspired and challenged to grow with courage, compassion and respect, believing that we can make a positive difference wherever we are. 

This is rooted in our Christian core values of courage, compassion and respect and our determination to transform the world!

At Knayton, we believe that children need to feel happy, safe and valued in order to learn, with nurture and relationships at the heart. There is something very special about our school and we are incredibly proud of it!

Our curriculum at Knayton inspires our children and they love learning. The National Curriculum underpins our ambitious approach and our curriculum progression documents. Our children will be nurtured to grow without limits and we know they achieve great things!

We have the highest expectations and feel privileged to work with enthusiastic and motivated learners, inspirational and passionate staff, supportive parents and a forward-thinking Governing Body.

As a school we are part of Elevate Multi Academy Trust, a collaboration of primary schools. Our collective aim is to improve outcomes for all children through a self-sustaining, dynamic system of school improvement and support across the region and beyond.

If you would like to find out what it is like to be a part of our Knayton family, please come and visit us. We would be more than happy to give you a tour of our school and introduce you to the people who make Knayton an exceptional place to learn, work and grow.
