We value diversity as a rich resource which supports the learning of all. The experiences we offer at Aspire help develop pupils’ achievements through individual learning pathways.
We celebrate individuality and recognise a pupil’s right to a broad, balanced, relevant and challenging curriculum which is appropriate to abilities, talents and personal qualities.
Aspire is a wholly inclusive school and the provision made for our pupils reflects individual needs.
Our aim is to create a happy and secure learning environment rich in stimulation and challenge. We want all members of the school community can grow in self-esteem and develop to their full potential, whether they are staff or pupils.
As an inclusive school, we regard equality and diversity as fundamental enablers to our school ethos and aims. We welcome our responsibilities to promote equality of opportunity and outcomes for our school community.
'Individual for All, Aspirational for Everyone'
Our school strapline reflects our belief that all the pupils at Aspire School can aspire to achieve great things, regardless of their additional needs or any challenges that they might face. We believe inclusion is an ongoing process that celebrates diversity and involves identification and diminishing barriers to learning and participation. Barriers may be experienced by any pupil, irrespective of ability, gender, ethnicity, language and social background. Inclusion involves the maximising of resources to reduce these barriers. To enable high quality inclusion, we must therefore recognise that pupils of all abilities should have full and equal access to participating in meaningful activities with their peers. Successful inclusion is to do with how pupils are educated and not where they are educated.
As a learning community, we recognise our responsibility, collectively and individually, to contribute to the delivery of a broad, challenging and appropriate curriculum; striving to deliver lessons where teaching and learning is of the highest quality. All children need an education that will help them develop relationships and prepare them for life in their local community. In order for inclusion to succeed, we continue to work alongside our mainstream counterparts within the Bourne MAT Alliance and wider to share skills, ideas and experiences. This way, we encourage our community to grow towards the future.
