What Learning Looks Like at Knayton 


At Knayton we believe that innovation and inspiration are central to classroom practice. When pupils are engaged and inspired by exciting learning opportunities, the learning is deep and intrinsic motivation is high.


Our Principled Approach:

• Children feel safe, happy and valued due to the excellent pastoral care and nurturing approach

• Learning is exciting, engaging and inspiring for all

• Learning behaviours are developed and pupils have a growth mindset; they are critically evaluative of their learning and motivated to improve. Children are not afraid to fail in their quest to succeed

• The approach is explorative and childled; building on excellent Early Years practice

• Exceptionally high standards and a culture of deep learning mean that progress is rapid and attainment is high

• ‘Keep Up not Catch Up’ culture ensures that pupils access preteaching and interventions as soon as they begin to fall behind and in most cases before they are able to fall behind

• Teachers who will do ‘whatever it takes’ for their children; both academically and from a nurture and care perspective; we are driven by the conviction that no child is left behind.


Our school is a safe environment that provides opportunities through the curriculum to allow children to flourish. We have developed a culture where opportunities in school and extended school enable pupils to experience success and build self-belief. This, in turn, develops the children’s innate curiosity for learning and enables them to be resilient citizens of modern Britain.
