We believe that we are a ‘Good’ school with outstanding opportunities for pupils and staff to fulfil our vision of learning together with aspiration, imagination and determination. Ofsted January 2016 said “This is a highly inclusive, inventive and aspirational school. It is on a journey of continuing improvement and change”. Our school is an extremely cohesive community with an ethos and culture that helps young people to thrive. Ofsted January 2016 said “Aspen pupils, and those in mainstream, are taught very successfully alongside each other, this helps them become well-rounded and well-behaved individuals”. We are part of three wider learning communities, the Samphire Learning Hub (SLH) which is a collaboration of nine local primary schools, KSENT (the collaboration of Kent special schools).
Whitfield Aspen School is unusual in a national context, in that it is a two/three form entry mainstream primary, with three hundred and eighty pupils, combined with the district special school for ninety-six pupils with Profound, Severe and Complex Learning Needs (PSCN). Twelve pupils on the Aspen role are at the Whitfield Aspen satellite class at Aylesham Primary school which is one of the SLH schools. This is because locally the demand for PSCN school places is higher than capacity. There is also an Observation and Assessment Nursery provision for 2 FTE pupils as part of the Aspen EYFS and provision for outreach observation and assessment within local mainstream Nurseries for 5 FTE. This means the proportion of pupils with profound, severe and complex learning needs far exceeds the national average for a mainstream school.
