Whitfield and Aspen School in my constituency is an amazing school, combining mainstream education with special needs.
Being so unique however does not come without its problems which is why today I went along with Andrew Lamb (Headmaster at Whitfield) Cole Andrew (Headmaster at Aspen) and Jason Cook (Deputy Head at Whitfield - soon to be Head) to the Department of Education to discuss the school's unique status and the extra consideration that is needed when looking at the school with regard to Ofstead and placement numbers.
It was a constructive meeting and hopefully positive outcomes will be on the way.
