Northampton Primary Academy Trust
‘Achieving Extraordinary Things’
In April 2018 we converted to become an academy and joined the Northampton Primary Academy Trust (NPAT). Being part of a wider academy trust has strengthened our position at a time of some uncertainty with the Local Authority, but will also provide us with exciting opportunities for future development for our children and staff.
NPAT has strong links with partner agencies such as The Royal Shakespeare Company, Microsoft and Create Development which allows NPAT schools to demonstrate exemplary practise in sport, dance, drama, the arts and technology. The aim of the Trust is to ensure that children can achieve the highest standards at the same time as enjoying a rich, challenging and relevant curriculum, which focuses on their personal development and prepares them for their place in the wider world.
Already this year, our children have benefitted from NPAT Trust-wide opportunities, for example Year 4 attended a Shakespeare First Encounters performance of ‘Comedy of Errors’ and children from Reception to Year 6 will take part in a Trust-wide Shakespeare project based on Romeo and Juliet in Spring term.
Our staff also benefit from regular training and network opportunities with colleagues and experts from within and outside the Trust, which can only mean good things for our children.
