STARS Update Video planned for Spring Term 2021

The STARS system has recently undergone an overhaul including many new features, summarised below. A video will be available later this term explaining how to navigate these changes to the system:

  • Accreditation: Two new accreditation levels, ‘Green’ and ‘Platinum’. ‘Funding’ has been removed as a requirement for Gold Accreditation.
  • Working Group tab: Working Group now has its own tab having previously been located in the Introduction Section.
  • Aims & Objectives tab: This tab has been added to ensure that Travel Plans developed in STARS are more complete. Completion of this section is not currently a requirement for Accreditation.
  • Modal shift graphs: New modal shift tabs displaying graphs have been added for all schools – note that they may not appear for your school until more data is added or updates are processed for the school in the STARS system.
  • More built-in tooltips/help: You will find lots more helpful guidance notes throughout the system that explain various functions and requirements.
  • Evidence: You may find that not all ‘evidence’ for initiatives has transferred from the old system initially. It will in time work its way over to the new system.
