North Star Alliance

St Peter’s are very proud to be members of North Star and Polaris Teaching School Alliances. North Star and Polaris formed a unique partnership in 2016 to support school improvement across North Yorkshire and work with around 70 primary schools in the region. Our collective aim is to improve outcomes for all children through a self-sustaining, dynamic system of school improvement and support across North Yorkshire and beyond. '


In 2014 a new National Curriculum was implemented by the Department of Education. In line with this, was the abolishment of the  assessment system that had been so conditioned by levels. Like most schools, this has been challenging for St Peters however, the School has taken the opportunity to refocus our attention on sound classroom practice. Teaching and learning assessments are now carried out periodically at St Peters and are the key to raising standards and ensuring that all pupils make excellent progress. Pupil assessments are a highly effective way for teachers to identify what pupils know, where gaps or misconceptions lie and how they should plan future teaching accordingly. Importantly, they also enable teachers to continuously assess the effectiveness of their own teaching. Along side this, is the close monitoring of the children’s learning by the Head Teacher and by our Link Governors, that feed into these assessments.
