As Principal, I would like to warmly welcome you to our inner-city primary academy, situated in Leicester. If looking to choose a school, I hope that you will feel Knighton Mead is the place for your child. We strive for all of our children to have special and happy memories of their time with us and value highly the positive relationships we have built between children, parents, staff, governors and our neighbouring communities. We hold true our values of Nurture, Learn, Achieve.
Children get one chance for an education and here at Knighton Mead we want this to be the very best. There is a driving determination to ensure that all pupils and adults reach their full potential. Through the development of positive learning behaviours (5Rs and Character Muscles), we aim for all of our children to leave with the skills necessary for successful, lifelong learning and success. Learning is celebrated and openly admired. We work and learn together, alongside parents and carers.
At Knighton Mead, we value the role of outdoor learning and have developed our grounds to provide a stimulating and enriching environment. Our broad and creative curriculum is enhanced and enriched by every class experiencing trips offsite and/or workshops/ visits each half term; including residentials which are heavily subsidised. A specialist music teacher, dance teacher, sports coaches and links with Leicester City Football Club and Tigers Rugby Club further add to the curriculum offer. We have a variety of clubs before, during and after school – all of which are free to our families.
We have a lot to be proud of at Knighton Mead. We have well-resourced classrooms and specialist support bases to enhance learning. The school is a happy, stimulating and caring place and we expect high standards of behaviour and good manners throughout.
We would be delighted to show you around Knighton Mead Primary Academy, for you to feel the inclusive atmosphere, give you the opportunity to meet the staff and see the children as they work hard and enjoy the ambitious learning here at our school.
