  • Sharing information about concerns with agencies who need to know, and involving parents and children appropriately.

We are also committed to reviewing our policy and good practice at regular intervals. Aspire play schemes are registered and inspected by OFSTED under the Children's Act 1989. Aspire also recognises the Human Rights Act of 1998 and The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
