Welcome to Kniveton Church of England Primary School

At Kniveton C of E Primary we believe that all children have the potential to achieve the extraordinary.

When a child joins Kniveton, they become part of a supportive family that is dedicated to creating ambitious achievers, committed learners and responsible citizens. Our small class sizes allow us to build meaningful, long-lasting relationships with children. These strong bonds enable us to really get to know each and every child in our care, find out what inspires them and then challenge them to be brilliant in everything they do. 

Being in the heart of the Derbyshire Dales, we foster a love of the great outdoors with regular lessons taking place in our forest area adjacent to the school, regular trips to neighbouring Carsington Water and half-termly school trips to special places like the Chatsworth Estate or Buxton Opera House.

On top of these meaingingful experiences, our dedicated staff ensure that every child’s journey from Nursery through to Year 6 delivers the highest standards of achievement (amongst the top 1% in the country) and inspires a genuine curiosity for the world around them.

6 lucky (names drawn out of a hat) pupils had an amazing day at the Commonwealth Games event at Anthony Gell today! We had so much fun trying out wheelchair basketball, Quidich, climbing, Zumba and curling.
The children behaved really well and tried their hardest in all activities!
