New York Primary school has been involved with the North Tyneside SCITT for many years including recruitment, placement and ongoing specialist CPD. We relish working with enthusiastic students and have moved to appoint students from the SCITT as teachers in school. New York prides itself on dedicated and determined staff who want to make a difference and want to support those training for the profession to be excellent practitioners.  We are a creative team with current, up to date knowledge within a demanding and fully inclusive environment.  We have an exceptional EYFS provision with superb facilities including outdoors including our own woodland area on site. As a result our whole school curriculum is designed to best develop our pupils to attain well, aim high and be the best they can be.

The North East Partnership SCITT is the largest physical education provider in the north east of England and one of the largest in the country. We are proud to be a partnership school in supporting trainees to become qualified primary school teachers in the five to eleven range, with a specialism of physical education.

Trainees spend the majority of the year in their Host School and have a contrasting placement in a Partner School. We offer placements in both KS1 and KS2 whilst providing curriculum study days in EYFS. Throughout the year, there are three placements where we will support two different trainees to progressively develop their subject knowledge, pedagogy, skills and understanding in all areas of the primary education, including in their PE specialism.

We are also proud to support the North East Partnership SCITT in the delivery of the core programme including curriculum studies in both core and foundation subjects. This year, we will be delivering sessions in English, Maths, Art and Geography as well as hosting the trainees for Every Lesson Outstanding taster sessions and pupil premium and SEND workshops.

This year we welcome Miss Leckie into Year 5 for her initial placement and will return for her final placement. Miss Tate joins Year 2 for her intermediate placement.
