Community Links

James Knott Campus has developed many partnership links with local businesses, the police, fire service and local health professionals.

Year 5 pupils are part of The Northumbria Mini Police, an engagement scheme designed to improve citizenship within our communities and give young children the opportunity to learn about their safety, their role within their community and how the police work within the community to keep us safe.

We regularly visit St.John’s Church to enrich our religious education curriculum. Family services are held at St John’s three times each year to celebrate Harvest, Christmas and Easter.

Strong links have been made with Ground Work North East and our children regularly participate in forest school activities, based on campus and in Ashington Community Woods.

The campus is delighted to be part of The Country Trust Food Discovery project this academic year which will see the Year 4 children and their families growing, cooking and selling their own produce grown in the James Knott garden.
