Primary Leadership Training Event

On Monday 30th September our Primary Leadership Team went to Sir Jonathan North Community College to take part in a variety of activities from team building to designing their own Primary Leadership Team shields. They all used their character muscles and had a lot of fun developing their understanding of what skills and qualities makes a great Primary Leadership Team. The children are looking forward to putting what they have learnt in action back at school.  

Daily Boost Launch

On Tuesday 10th September, the whole school took part in the exciting launch of the Daily Boost. The Daily Boost is a programme that aims to encourage children to do 15 minutes of physical activity every day, designed to support children to become more active. The children engaged in a variety of physical activities led by children, members of staff and a visitor, who taught the children lots of different but fun and exciting ways to enjoy skipping. We even had a special visit from the daily boost mascot, Zoom. What a fantastic way to start off the day!

Proposed Change of Academy Name

After careful consideration the Board of Trustees of The Mead Educational Trust have agreed to change the name of Knighton Fields Primary Academy and are proposing to change the name to Knighton Mead Primary Academy from 28th August 2019. The proposed name will explicitly reflect the Academy’s link with The Mead Educational Trust and its family of academies The change of name will not affect the way in which the academy is run. The Academy will remain committed to working together to make a positive difference and continue to improve the life chances of its children and young people through high aspirations and challenge. We would like to take this opportunity to assure parents that students will be able to continue wearing their existing Knighton Fields Primary Academy uniforms for as long as they require them. There is no requirement to purchase an updated uniform unless a replacement is needed…

Art week at Knighton Mead – 2019

At Knighton Mead, we aim to provide our pupils with an understanding and appreciation of a range of artists and their work. Through providing pupils with experiences to explore their varied work, pupils are able to build a repertoire of techniques and styles to improve their learning. One way in which we achieve this, is through our ‘artist weeks’ where classes across the academy focus on a specific artist and create a final interpretation of their work. We have used the corridor display boards to display our work so be sure to check them out when you come to visit. As you can see from our most recent artist week, we certainly have some budding artists here at Knighton Mead.

New Acting Principal

Hello to all at Knighton Fields Primary Academy and a belated Happy New Year! I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to be the Acting Principal at Knighton Fields. I quickly realised what a very special place it is and have appreciated the warm welcome everyone has given me. I am doing my best to learn everyone’s names as soon as possible. If you haven’t spoken to me yet, please come and say hello. I was born and went to school in Leicester. I trained to be a teacher in Sheffield then returned to Leicester to teach. I then spent some time gaining further experience in London in schools in Hackney and Tower Hamlets and returned to settle in Leicester as Vice-Principal at Willowbrook, another one of the TMET schools, before coming to Knighton Fields. I am looking forward to working with the children and staff to ensure…
