Welcome - Ethos and Values

We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.


We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

Ashby Fields Primary School is part of InMAT - message from our CEO below:



InMAT is a multi academy trust based in Northamptonshire. Our aim is to provide exceptional opportunities for learning for a family of primary academies across the county. Our passion is primary education and we believe that children can achieve the highest academic standards at the same time as enjoying a rich, rewarding and challenging curriculum which focuses on themselves as individuals, developing their character and helping them realise the opportunities open to them in the wider world.

There are currently 11 schools in the inMAT family. We are passionate about enabling every child to achieve their potential, and we go that extra mile to ensure each and every one of our children gets the best possible opportunities and experiences.

For us, academic excellence is a given. But our schools are about so much more; offering broad and exciting experiences that really inspire the young people in our care.  

This approach to learning requires exceptional people. We value all of the people who work in our schools and great schools have great leaders and great staff. Our team has educationalists and leaders who have proven track records of success and we are committed to learning from each other and believe that everyone has something to offer. We believe in developing and retaining our staff, across every level of the organisation.

This is an exciting time to be part of the InMAT family of schools, and I am proud to work with such exceptional professionals to deliver on our promise of exceptional opportunities for learning to each and every child in our care.
