Why I love working at North Star...

Some quotes from our current staff team:
'I love my job, the children, the staff, basically just being here. I have faith in SLT.'
'The school is a very sociable place to work. Every day is different and it's incredibly exciting.'
'I like feeling like I am part of something bigger and that what I do makes a difference for the students and staff.'
'I love being here. It's all about the students, colleagues, the vision, the atmosphere. We are family.'
'Working at North Star 240 has been a transformative journey for me, both personally and professionally. I started my career here as a Learning Support Assistant (LSA), a role that allowed me to gain invaluable experience in teaching. The supportive environment and the opportunity to learn on the job were instrumental in shaping my teaching skills.

What sets North Star 240 apart is its leadership. The Head Teacher not only recognized my commitment but also appreciated my innovative ideas. This recognition was not just in words, but it translated into tangible support. I was provided with coaching that helped me develop as a teacher and grow in my role.

Today, I am proud to be part of the school leadership, a testament to the opportunities for growth and advancement that North Star 240 offers. The support system here is robust and timely, ensuring that I have the help I need, when I need it.

Perhaps the most telling example of the organisation's supportive nature was during my illness. The entire organization rallied around me, providing support and understanding during a challenging time. This experience underscored the fact that North Star 240 is not just a workplace, but a community that cares for its members.

In conclusion, working at North Star 240 has been a rewarding experience. It is a place where commitment is recognized, innovation is encouraged, growth is facilitated, and most importantly, employees are cared for. I look forward to continuing my journey here, contributing to the organization's success while also growing on a personal level.'
