Our Education Vision

Every academy develops its curriculum offer to deliver the NSAT promise in the way that best meets the needs of their children and young people. We believe that individual schools know their communities best.

Woven into our approach is our “Green Curriculum Promise” which places learning about our environment, sustainability and stewardship of the natural world at the forefront of school life.

Supporting Our Schools

All NSAT schools are ambitious in their plans for delivering continuous improvement.
School leaders work with one another to share expertise and learning, both informally and through a structured process of peer review. Schools are also able to draw on the Trust’s central team of improvement and development specialists.

Enabling Schools to Succeed

Our School Improvement Strategy is shaped by our NSAT promise. It sets out our approach for securing continuing improvement across all our schools, that is both transformational and progressive, yet sustainable.
Our approach is founded on the belief that our Trust Partnership is only as strong as its most vulnerable school. Therefore, we allocate resources according to need. As a Trust Partnership of schools, we share a collective responsibility and accountability to transform the life chances and opportunities of every child in our care, wherever they attend school.

At the Fore-front of Teacher Development

With our own Northern Star ITT (formerly Northern Lights SCITT), judged by Ofsted as Good with Outstanding Leadership and Management, we are engaged directly in recruiting and developing the next generation of teachers, many of whom go on to work in our schools. We also work as a regional Hub for Education Development Trust to deliver the Early Career Framework for new teachers, placing us at the heart of the teacher development agenda. NSITT - Logo - rgb
