North Star network groups are an opportunity for subject leaders to:
- Share practice across curriculum subjects and to support leadership development.
- Promote innovation and creativity in thinking about practice.
- Provide a supportive environment that respects the confidentiality of what is shared.
- Create a vision for reform and progress.
- Promote shared ownership.
- Update the knowledge and skills of all members.
- Share ideas that challenge teachers rather than just prescribe.
There are currently network groups in Maths, English, SEND and Early Years. From September 2016, the four networks have been broken down into five regional groups, with each network sharing a network lead, who will support the groups and ensure consistency across them. Each school has been allocated a regional group, but teachers may choose which regional group they would like to attend. We simply ask that once you have committed to a group, you stay with that group.
