Exceptional provision, especially in the nursery,
early years and special school environments
Northamptonshire has a University Technical College (UTC), academies and Multi Academy Trusts (MATS), a high performing Free School (more Free schools opening soon) and exceptional provision in the nursery, early years and special school environments. Northamptonshire’s schools are improving their performance and young people are increasingly ‘work ready’ through engagement with Enterprise Advisers but performance in our primary and secondary sectors still remains below the national average.

We are a modern primary school across two sites approximately a mile apart and part of the Northampton Primary Academy Trust. Although both sites are very different in appearance, both share the same ethos, values and dedication to high standards. The teachers work hard to ensure that the children experience a very high standard of all round education.
Park Campus (the original Abington Vale site) was built in 1968, it is an attractive building surrounded by extensive grounds, which provide a stimulating environment for both learning and play for our pupils.
Stirling Campus was completed and opened in September 2013. It is a fabulous office block conversion providing a unique and exciting learning opportunity for 210 children. Its modern and dynamic design is based upon Scandinavian school principals with large collaborative spaces.

Alfred Street School is located in the centre of Rushden and is housed in Victorian buildings which give it a distinctive character. The number of pupils which the school plans to admit in any year (the Admission Number) is 60
We are extremely proud of our inclusive, inspiring and creative school. All Saints CEVA is an oversubscribed “outstanding” Church School for 210 pupils with 52 children attending our nursery provision. The school has strong connections with the Peterborough Diocese and All Saints Church. Our mission statement encompasses this:
“With Jesus as our guide we will inspire a passion for learning, high aspirations and respect for all”
It is of vital importance to us that our children develop a lifelong love of learning through a relevant, creative and fun curriculum, appropriate to the children’s needs and interests. We see the child as a “whole” and it is of paramount importance to us to develop their social, spiritual, moral, cultural, physical and academic wellbeing. Our Victorian building built in 1880 has undergone substantial refurbishment, turning it into a contemporary, appropriate building able to accommodate a well-resourced 21st century curriculum. Our intention is simple, we want every child to be happy and excited about coming to school.
We are a happy and vibrant school situated on the outskirts of Daventry. Our reputation for valuing, caring for and attending to the needs of each child is justly deserved and a real strength of the school.
We are far more than just a two-form entry Primary School. We run a successful wrap around care facility, providing provision for breakfast club and after school care both of which are based at our school and managed by staff children are familiar with and hugely popular.
Ofsted inspected Ashby Fields Primary School in April 2015 and we were judged to be ‘good’, remarking that ‘Leaders, including governors, have successfully improved teaching since the last inspection……as a result, pupils are making good progress in reading, writing and mathematics and their attainment is rising rapidly.’
Our team are extremely talented and wholly committed to making a difference.
Our children enjoy coming to school and are very excited about learning. They feel trusted and respected and they know that there is always someone who will listen to them. School is a safe, warm, and caring place where children can thrive and succeed.
Our team are passionate about making a difference and strongly believe that all children should have equal opportunities to achieve well and become the best they can be. To this end, we promote the highest possible expectations of our children and each other in all aspects of school life.
We know that our staff are our most valuable resource and invest heavily in ensuring that everyone has the skills they need both to fulfil their current role and to prepare them for future aspirations. We will ensure that you have all the support and training you need to be effective in post.
