Mission Statement

Mission Statement

In September 2017 I started my new role as Headteacher following the school converting to an academy in May 2017. Having been at the school since 2012 though, I am very familiar with it and am absolutely committed to Knowles and will stop at nothing to achieve the very best for your children. Knowles is a school in the heart of a very special community and I feel very privileged to continue my journey at Knowles leading the school on the next steps of its incredible journey and working with the Lakes Academies Trust who share my vision that your children deserve the very best during their time with us.

We have a dedicated, hard working and friendly team who put children at the heart of every decision they make to ensure they are happy, safe, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future.

Our shared values at Knowles support us to think about the kind of people we aspire to be and the education we aspire to; they support us to learn about human diversity and instil in us the knowledge, skills and attitudes we need to live and work together in our community.

We aim to create a happy, caring, safe environment in which children develop self-confidence and independence; are encouraged to be considerate and show respect for others. Knowles children are encouraged to work hard; have a positive attitude to learning and become confident in their own ability. We are continuously seeking excellence for all children.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities that you need, but of course if you are interested in joining our school and finding out more, please contact us and we will be delighted to show you around.

With very best wishes

Sarah Rice Headteacher
