Northampton Primary Academy Trust (NPAT)

Vision Statement

The Northampton Primary Academy Trust Partnership (NPAT) is a collaboration of the following schools:

  • Abington Vale Primary School
  • Ecton Brook Primary School
  • Headlands Primary School
  • Lings Primary School
  • Simon de Senlis Primary School (currently under consultation)
  • Weston Favell Primary School

With responsibility for approximately 2400 children across Northampton, NPAT is driven by a vision of innovation, high aspiration and achievement, and a commitment to sport and the arts. This approach is encapsulated in our motto:

‘Extraordinary Children Doing Extraordinary Things’

NPAT schools all share this common vision and are committed to these principles, whilst retaining the freedom to innovate and develop their own identity and character.

The Partnership is built on the principle of synergy; that a collaboration of vibrant and successful schools ensures that we can achieve collectively what a single school couldn’t achieve alone.   NPAT improves our schools using collaboration and innovation through partnership working that brings together children, parents, teachers and school leaders,

‘My school is your school; your children are ‘our’ children.’

Within the partnership, schools will have differing strengths and needs at different times and all schools are committed to an ethos of mutual support and sharing of practice.

“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.”

George Bernard Shaw
