What the school offers its staff

At Aspire, staff wellbeing is a high priority: we do our jobs most effectively when we are well and happy, and when we practise self-care. One of the responsibilities of our leaders is to build the culture and practical systems that support and protect staff wellbeing, as well as that of students.

We believe that staff wellbeing is most likely to be high when:

  • young people are at the centre of every decision
  • all voices are heard and valued
  • we are determined to achieve genuine equity and commit to this journey
  • we are all learning and we value and treasure this process
  • we are valued as humans first, educators second
  • we have the resources we need to do our jobs - and can ask for them if we do not
  • we are consulted on the decisions which affect our working lives
  • we are trusted to make important decisions
  • we can talk openly about our struggles without fear of stigma
  • we support in every direction
  • we face daily challenges and take time at the end of the working day to resolve them, learn from them and move on
  • we learn - together - from our daily challenges
  • we follow-up and do what we say we will do
  • we are honest about what we cannot control

Commitment to safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and education of our students and expect all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check and references will be required, along with the completion of a Health Questionnaire.
