What is Aspire?

All schools have their own unique identity and we believe at Sutton-at-Hone C of E Primary School our ethos of ASPIRE is part of what makes us unique. The components of ASPIRE all contribute towards developing happy, safe, well-motivated children who always aspire to be the very best they can be.

At Sutton-at-Hone we believe that politeness is an important part of learning how to develop as a person and function within a community. This is reinforced through our ‘Golden Rules’.
