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.

Welcome to Kniveton Primary School
Places available in all year groups
We have prepared some work for your children to undertake during the school closure period that begins after Friday.
Please find attached a ‘working from home’ booklet that will enable your child to practise their English and Maths work. If your child is not in school today then you can access these teaching packs here- there is one for each year group.
In addition to this, we are sending your child home with four reading books. We have kept a copy of this letter with the books on to ensure that they are returned safely to school. Please encourage your child to read at home during this period of closure, it is important that they read on a daily basis if possible.
In addition to this, there are plenty of resources online that will keep your child busy during the school closure. The website,
is providing parents with free membership for the next couple of months and has school closure ‘home learning’ materials as well as other activities. Just search by year group, or by subject ie French, Comprehension, Maths and Science.
has plenty of activities that are ICT based. Children could use the tools to create an information leaflet/document about something they are interested in, or make a picture with the art tools. They can also practise their times tables using the games. If your child has a problem logging on, please email Mrs Robson who will fix it!
has lots of video clips/activities for children to complete in all subjects.
We follow the White Rose mixed age schemes of work for Mathematics in school and they have prepared a series of five brand new maths lessons for each year group from Years 1-8. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.
is very useful for times tables practise and also has plenty of activities. Please encourage your child to continue to practise their times tables and their number bonds. Remember that all children by the end of year 4 should know their tables up to 12 x 12. Years 5 and 6 can also practise their squared numbers, cubed numbers and prime numbers.
Mrs Robson has also attached a French challenge sheet should your child wish to complete it.
We hope that you and your child enjoy these activities. In addition to this, you could encourage them to write a diary of their time off or even a short story. Anything to keep them using their skills of maths, reading and writing! Don’t hesitate to contact one of us if you need any help/guidance or recommendations of further work.
Sending you our very best wishes during this uncertain time,
Mrs Board, Mrs Gorman, Mrs Robson, Mrs Raine and Miss Firth
