About Aspire

With over 40 years combined experience in Behaviour Management, School Advisory SEN Support, Parenting Intervention & Support, Mental Health, Training and Youth Offending, Aspire was founded by Gill Bullock, Daniel Maher and Louise Moczulski in 2014.

 

“Initially we started our venture working closely with individual schools, providing bespoke packages in and around the Bolton area. Through positive interactions and engagement with other professionals, we rapidly gained momentum. We now provide support, interventions and training to many schools across Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.

As we evolved our support for our customers became far more bespoke, and our ability to provide a broader range of specialisms improved with the addition of specialist SEN, ASD and Dyslexia experienced team members.

We quickly recognised that there was a great need for a preventative provision for children who are at crisis, struggling to manage in their mainstream school and who are at risk of permanent exclusion.

Through working in the East Lancashire area, we found that many schools felt they had no alternative but to permanently exclude.

To help reduce the number of permanent exclusions and to avoid the distressing effects that this can have on a child and their families, in March 2017, we opened our nurturing provision in the shape of The Aspire Hub, located in Burnley.”

 

Function of Aspire Behaviour Management

Aspire BM work with Local Authorities, schools, educational settings and families to improve attendance and behaviour in children, young people and vulnerable adults.  We strive to achieve positive outcomes for children/young people and their families, using evidenced based parenting interventions to support outcomes. We will support and offer training packages to the school/education setting to further develop a culture of positive behaviour management.

Our established model of integrative practices allows us to work in partnership with a wide range of external agencies within the Early Help/CAF/EHCP process. We work holistically with schools and families to enable them to gain positive outcomes and improve the attendance and behaviour.

Aspire BM are able to offer bespoke packages to families that are experiencing challenging behaviour in the home/community. Using evidenced based assessment tools, bespoke packages can be tailored to meet the needs of the family and the setting.  All parenting interventions are delivered using the appropriate evidenced based parenting programme e.g. Triple P, Webster Stratton, strengthening families strengthening communities, parent child game.

Aspire has effectively led the team, providing and managing the service to our school in supporting pupils with social, emotional and behavioural needs and in supporting school in effectively managing these pupils. Her experience and expertise has been highly valued and Gill has contributed advice, training, guidance and support in the managing of the varied needs of our children and has been actively involved with the school over many years.

Aspire North West have provided bespoke support to our school which has included Individual Staff Training for behaviour management, support and advice in the completion of EHAF and HNF applications and in class support for pupils. All of the work undertaken has been completed in a timely and professional manner. The staff are knowledgeable and skilled in their work,  therefore we highly recommend this service for schools seeking individualised support tailored to their specific needs.

We began working with Aspire in January 2015 as we felt we needed a more tailored service to support our children and staff. The support provided has been excellent and we continue to work together to mould the perfect service to meet our needs. Aspire North West works with pupils and staff on a one to one basis and in small groups to improve behaviour and pupil wellbeing across the school. The support that has been provided has been integral in maintaining outstanding behaviour at Bishop Bridgeman Primary School.
