Northstead Community Primary School is a large 3 form entry primary (626 on roll) with big ambitions and over the last three years we have developed an enviable reputation for teaching and learning, professional development and for the pastoral and nurture support we provide to our children and community

We know the CPD we offer develops our teachers as professionals – with many going onto promotion as leaders across the coast. We encourage secondment opportunities and work closely with our primary family of schools within Scarborough
