North Star

Who we are.
North Star is a collaboration of primary schools across North Yorkshire, led by Meadowside Academy in Knaresborough, part of Elevate Multi-Academy Trust. We were designated in the Spring of 2014 and are proud to support schools throughout the region and to provide high-quality initial teacher training through our successful School Direct programme.
 

We work with strategic partners including Red Kite, the Local Authority, Leeds University, Leeds Trinity University, the Teaching Schools Council, the Regional Schools Commission, Carnegie Leaders in Learning, York St John University and others.
 

Our vision is to embed a culture of truly continual professional development for all teachers and TAs at every level. We are not a top-down school-improvement service – we are a facilitation service for schools and their staff to improve their own practice through collaboration and research. Our CPLD offer is built on evidence-based programmes that develop an individual’s skills and practice over time and through working with others.

Our approach to each of the areas of focus (CPLD, iTT, and School to School Support) is underpinned by this vision and we strive to make it relevant to all members from trainees taking their first steps into teaching to the most experienced Head Teachers.

Train to Teach

North Star Teaching School Alliance

North Star is a collaboration of primary schools across North Yorkshire, led by Meadowside Academy in Knaresborough, part of Elevate Multi-Academy Trust. We were designated in the Spring of 2014 and are proud to support schools throughout the region and to provide high-quality initial teacher training through our successful School Direct programme.

From September 2021 we are delighted to be working in partnership with Red Kite Teacher Training, offering a range of exciting new Primary School Direct courses, leading QTS with PGCE.

 

Our vision for Teacher Training - Train where you live

Training with us is designed to be simple. Together, North Star and Red Kite are bringing teacher training to you. We’ll find the right school for you from our many schools across the partnership. You will learn from an expert team of experienced teachers, mentors and head teachers. You will also be able to choose one of our CPD training venues nearest to where you live.
