Aspiration and Excellence

The aims and philosophy for Tapton’s Aspiration and Excellence programme are:

  • To ‘aspire higher’ - an ethos for all pupils to challenge themselves at every stage of their learning.
  • To provide a growing ‘Aspirations and Excellence’ cohort with a comprehensive offering of ‘super curricular’ and enrichment provision.
  • The Aspiration & Excellence cohort will be role-models in the school: academically committed, intellectually curious, and leaders in promoting a growth mindset. They are pupils who share and develop their cultural capital within the umbrella of Tapton's educational as well as social values: valuing everyone, caring for each other, achieving excellence.

    Key work that we do is:

  • Our key focus this year is oracy – speaking with persuasion, passion, and style. After extensive research on the benefits of high level oracy in the classroom, and completing comprehensive professional training in the area, we have decided to run a whole school ‘Debating Day’, followed up with a Sheffield School’s Debating Competition.
