Spring Lane Primary, Northampton ~ Day 1

Spring Lane Primary

Spring Lane PrimaryThe first of our two days at Spring Lane Primary. A school situated in the centre of Northampton town, serving with respect a diverse and vibrant community. Thanks go to Headteacher Alex Owens for inviting us, her staff and her colleagues from neighbouring schools and the Collaborative Academies Trust: St Barnabas Church of England School, Lumbertubs Primary, Willowdown Primary Academy, Priorswood Primary, Wellesley Park Primary, Manor Court Primary, Willow Brook Primary and Woolavington Village Primary.

Thank you to Gary Avery, Assistant Headteacher, for coordinating our visit, and for his thoughts here:

We are looking for ways to inspire our children to go ‘beyond’ what they think they are capable of, to develop imagination and creativity. Our teachers do a fantastic job but we think something different, innovative and that taps directly into the things our children are interested in will provide the spark for rapid progress. We have complete confidence that our staff will be able to integrate the new ideas and then add to them so that we end up with something that is perfectly adapted for our children.

    What a great day – sessions like these with Tim and Sarah remind me why this is the best job in the world. So many ideas, can’t wait to share them with children and watch what happens.

    A fantastic & inspiring day with lots to think about & try (thank goodness the holidays are coming up & I’ll have time to play). Looking forward to seeing it in action with the children, both tomorrow back at Spring Lane & within my own classroom. Thanks for the opportunity 🙂
