Have courage and be kind...

Welcome to Knayton Church of England Academy


Our Christian Vision is for children to feel happy and valued as individuals. Children will be nurtured to grow without limits and be inspired to achieve exceptional progress.

This is rooted in our Christian core values of compassion, courage 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, nurture and relationships are at the heart. There is something very special about our school and we are incredibly proud of it!

The bespoke curriculum at Knayton inspires our children and they love learning. The National Curriculum underpins our ambitious approach and our unique curriculum progression documents. Our children will be nurtured to grow without limits and 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.
