All children are valued, respected and welcomed in Aspire academies, whatever their additional educational need. We support their learning and ensure they are fully included in all school activities, making full use of externally provided facilities where appropriate.
Children with additional needs are identified through a combination of observations of the children as individuals within their classes by our experienced staff, tracking the outcomes of assessments and through discussions with parents. Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators work with the class teachers and teaching assistants to create programmes of support that meet the needs of the child and will liaise with a range of external agencies, as and when appropriate.
The Aspire Academy Trust believes in providing every child with the opportunity to experience an outstanding education, both academically and emotionally and socially.
We believe by rigorously identifying the barriers to learning, providing an inspiring and relevant curriculum that considers the whole child and providing the necessary support for children to achieve and develop, all children will reach their true potential.
