Welcome Note

Welcome to Knowl Hill Church of England Academy.

 

On behalf of everyone in our school may we extend a very warm welcome to you.  We are a busy and friendly school, with lots going on.

We have fantastic staff who reflect excellent classroom practice, genuinely care for all our children and enjoy their profession.  We have established strong, positive partnerships with our governors and parents and by working together we strive to give every child the best start in life; making them feel happy, valued and successful learners.

 

The school is welcoming, safe and secure and children regularly have the opportunity to learn both in the classroom and within the school's outdoor grounds.  The surrounding environment, including woodland, hills, fields and a nearby village pond, is used to ensure we broaden pupils' learning and independent thinking skills and teach them to assess and take risks. 

 

As a church school, we have a Christian ethos which encompasses everything we do.  We maintain a close connection with the Diocese of Oxford and we value our close links with St. Peter’s Church in Knowl Hill which is part of the Wargrave and Knowl Hill Parish.

 

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries or suggestions you may have.

 

We hope this website gives you a taster of the school, as well as a window into providing regular updated information for parents, pupils and regular visitors.

 

Thank you and we hope to see you soon!

The Castle is open!!

We are delighted that the amazing castle is open and available for the children to play on. Over the last few months we have all been watching with interest as the castle developed and grew.

It contains a range of activities, shapes and levels so that all the children can learn and challenge themelves through playing on it.

WE would like to thank the PTA and all the parents who helped to raise the funds needed to buy the materials and to Mr Woodhouse for his time, effort and skill in building it.

Due its popularity there is a rota for playing on the castle, ensuring that all the children get an equal chance to enjoy playing on it.

Spellathon

On Friday we all challenged ourselves and used our superpowers to help us complete our Spelling Mission.

 

Over the last few weeks we have all been learning spelling list and on Friday we completed the Mission!!

 

Each class were tested on words selected from their lists to find the class 'Super Speller' as well calculating the overall class percentage.  Many of the children excelled and in some classes we had to award 2 winners as the children got all their spellings correct!

 

In a special assembly on Friday afternoon certificates were awarded to the individual winners and Year 1, who achieved a magnificent 88%, were awarded and additional Mufti day later in the term.

 

I was proud of the children for working hard on their spellings, and for celebrating the success of the children who received certificates.
