ESCO: Melanie Smith, the Northampton Extended Service Co-ordinator works closely with our cluster of schools and among many other activities she runs successful holiday clubs across Northampton during school holidays-these are often oversubscribed so do book early see www.northamptonesco.co.uk
Faith Links: We are fortunate to be supported by a wide range of Christian organisations and other faith groups. The two main Churches we are linked, with due to our amazing school history, are All Saints and St Giles in the centre of town, but we also work closely with the Christian School Assembly Team, CSALT, as well as the Methodist circuit, Broadmead Baptist and Reynard’s Way Church.
School Networks: We are fortunate to work in partnership with a number of local schools, including Kingsthorpe Village, Sunnyside and Whitehills. We are all committed to continual school improvement, through collaboration and School-to-School support, S2S. We work collaboratively as head teachers to audit the quality of provision in our schools; undertake whole staff involvement in book scrutiny, develop subject leadership, teaching assistants and Governance. Our strength is that each of our schools are very different to each other including representation from a Multi Academy Trust, MAT. These differences coupled with a shared ambition for our pupils help us pool resources, gain ideas and inspire best practice and training.
Peterborough Diocese: As a Church school we are part of Peterborough Diocese and its Board of Education, more information about their work, courses, news and events can be found on their website at www.peterborough-diocese.org.uk
School to School Network-S2S. We work closely with a number of local schools including Whitehills, Sunnyside and Kingsthorpe Village Primary School. Our staff work collaboratively on school improvement projects and our current focus is developing subject leadership.
