The Aspire Academy Trust is committed to supporting positive mental health and the Aspire Mental Health Policy is available below.
The ‘Leading a Mentally Healthy School’ training programme has been developed by Health Education England (HEE) and the School Development Support Agency (SDSA), in partnership with an expert group of educational psychologists, education consultants and mental health organisations and responds to the areas highlighted in the recent Green Paper – ‘Transforming Children & Young People’s Mental Health Provision’ (December 2017).
We currently have keyboard, guitar, drum and brass lessons available in school.
Children receive ten lessons per term in school time and these are currently priced at £48.75 per term. Subsidised lessons are available if you are in receipt of certain benefits. Further details can be obtained from the Office.
We have a drum kit and keyboards for use during lessons in school but you will need to buy your own for practice at home. For any child taking drum lessons, the Music Service recommends the use of percussion practice pads, which are priced at approximately £8.00 each and available from most music stores.
We keep a waiting list of children who would like to receive lessons and we check with the Music Service Teachers on a continuous basis to see if they can offer any more places. As soon as they can, we notify you.
For any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Office. Alternatively, if you’d like to put your child straight onto a waiting list, just download and complete the pro forma and return it to the Office.
