School Ethos

Our Ethos

Our students are central to all that we do. Expanse Learning believes that everyone, regardless of their current situation and starting point can achieve and make progress towards their goals and aspirations with the right package of education and care provision.


It is our aim to:

Provide a safe and happy environment in which all students have the opportunity to develop personally, physically, socially, academically and spiritually alongside providing access to a relevant curriculum with a wide range of learning experiences to meet the different needs of individual students whilst offering equality of opportunity and high standards of teaching.

To enable our students to develop we create a happy, safe and effective learning environment where everyone is valued. We aim to provide a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated curriculum. By this, we mean students will be introduced to a wide range of concepts, experiences, knowledge and skills at a level appropriate to each individual.

Inclusion at Expanse:

Expanse School fosters a culture of respect and belonging, our school provides opportunities for all students to learn and grow and to accept individual differences.

Fundamentally we believe that inclusive education is about recognising our students have equal rights and equal value.
