Welcome to Kniveton Primary School

Kniveton Primary School prides itself on our strong foundations of Christian and British Values. These key values are:

Democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.

We believe that all children deserve equal access to the very best educational experience that we can provide, which will prepare them for their future role as responsible citizens who are respectful, resilient and compassionate.

We encourage children to affirm their own sense of identity whilst celebrating and valuing the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all people and cultures.

Our aim is to encourage children to keep themselves safe in a wide variety of situations. We are a school that prioritises the emotional, mental and physical welfare of all its stakeholders.

We foster strong links with St. Michael’s church and the Methodist Chapel in Kniveton.

We want all our children to reach their true potential and to be inspired and motivated to learn. We do this by providing a broad and balanced curriculum where all achievement is valued and celebrated.

Return to school

Dear Parents and Carers,


I hope that you and your family are having a lovely, if somewhat different, summer.  As a school we are looking forward to welcoming your children back on Monday the 7th September when we are able to reopen to all of our school community.


As I outlined in my letter prior to the summer holiday there will be some changes to our school day, classrooms and school routines.  Please refer back to this letter and discuss these changes with your child in the run up to the reopening of school as this will help ease their transition back into school life.  I have listed below some of the main differences for you to share with your children.


- A staggered start in the mornings. Allocated fixed end of the day time.

 - Increased hand washing and use of hand sanitiser throughout the school day

 - Classrooms will be set out in rows (their teachers will show them where to sit)

 - Break times and lunchtimes in their Year group bubbles

 - No whole school gatherings e.g. worship times

 - Classes groups will be grouped as ‘bubbles’...

Flu Vaccinations

Dear Parents/Carers 


For the school year starting September 2020 we will be continuing with the e-consent for the Flu Programme. 


This year we are vaccinating children in Reception, Year 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. 


When completing the e-consent, please state the year group your child will be in at the beginning of the school year September 2020. If you have already completed a consent form you do not need to do this again. 


Please visit https://www.derbyshireandcityimms.co.uk/Forms/Flu to complete the consent form. 


The option to consent or decline the vaccination is at the end of the questionnaire so please complete even if you do not want your child to have the vaccination.
