Read about how we are helping pupils stay in the classroom in The Bolton News.  

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.

Joanne Blakemore - Social Inclusion Officer Brandwood School

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.
