Parent Consultations

We are looking forward to welcoming our parents and carers to school this Thursday for our Parent Consultations. There will be refreshments available in the hall as well as two pupil led stalls. We have the Fairtrade Team and the Rights Respecting Team ready to share their learning with you. In the Big K we have some of our support staff on duty to supervise the children during your appointment time(s). We would ask that you sign your child in and out of the Big K and give your permission for them to have a juice and a biscuit whilst there. You will see that the children have prepared a feedback sheet for you to complete on the evening. These can be found in the pupil work folders/trays outside the classrooms. We would be very grateful if you could complete it and place it back in the folder/tray.

Red Nose Day

Our Pupil Council have been working hard to organise Red Nose Day this Friday 24th of March. We are asking everyone to come to school dressed in something red for a £1 donation. Children can dress up or simply wear something red or even just a red hairband!

There will be a Red Nose Day stall with items priced from 40p – £1.

Our ‘guess how many sweets in the jar’ has being doing the rounds already this week, priced at 20p.

Our competition for the best class joke is going well, keep them coming in as the best from each class will be able to tell it at our Red Nose Day Assembly on Friday.

Thank you in advance for your support in raising lots of money for this very worthwhile cause.

Comments Off on Festival Choir Success

Festival Choir Success

The Knowetop Choir not only won their category at the Glasgow Music Festival last week but also were overall winners of the Wood Memorial Trophy Certificate.



This is the second year in a row which our choir have won the overall event, no mean feat considering that competion came from various Local Authorities and included both state and private sector schools.  The choir are conducted by Mrs Sally Wilkinson, one of NLC’s Kodaly instructors.  A number of Mrs Wilkinson’s school choirs were highly placed in the competition, as were those of other NLC Kodaly instructors.

Our pupils performed beautifully and behaved in an exemplary manner – we are so proud of their achievements and the way they represented themselves, the school and NLC.

3sixty Stunt Team Visit to KPS

We were delighted to welcome the 3sixty cycle stunt team to Knowetop on Tuesday afternoon.  The stunts were amazing! But boys and girls……they are professionals and please don’t try the stunts at home!!

If you’d like to see more of their performances visit the 3sixty Bicycle Stunt Team on YouTube.

The Big Pedal 2017

Knowetop is taking part in ‘The Big Pedal’ 2017.  The Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose 2 wheels for their journey to school (where possible).

The challenge runs from 20th – 31st March 2017.

During this fortnight, we are trying to encourage as many children as possible to peddle or scoot to school.  Mrs Mosley and ‘The Bike Crew’ will count the bikes every day and enter the data onto the Big Pedal website.  Claire Brady (NLC I.Bike Officer) will record the numbers too.  There are local and national prizes to be won!!

We are aware that not all children will be able to cycle or scoot due to the distance travelled.  Where this is the case, we would encourage parents and pupils to park a little bit further away from the school and walk.  All active travel will be recognised in school.

Look out for a letter in your child’s bag with further details.
