Welcome to Bugle Nursery
Welcome to the Aspire Academy Trust.
Aspire is a vibrant, highly successful and widely recognised Trust determined to raise standards of educational achievement to the very highest levels. We don’t just aim for our children to achieve what is average or expected, but for them to excel both academically and in character.
We live in a global economy that requires our children to be prepared to think both critically and creatively, solve complex problems, and to communicate well. Mastery of the basics: reading, writing, maths and technology is our core purpose, and this sits firmly alongside ensuring our children have well-developed social and emotional skills. Aspire academies have a strong emphasis on the sport, arts and social, moral spiritual and cultural education.
Our 31 schools/academies and 18 nurseries are all an integral part of their local communities and have a real sense of identity. We value the contribution each of our communities makes and the distinctive opportunities and diversity it offers to the Trust. By working in true partnership, we offer exceptional learning experiences to all our children, so they benefit from the strength that being part of the extended Aspire family brings. If you want to learn more about us, then please visit our website at

I look forward to hopefully welcoming you to the Aspire family!

Getting learning off to a flying start.
Aspire Nurseries, led by qualified and knowledgeable staff, lay firm foundations for children in their early years. A qualified teacher from each school oversees the curriculum, learning environments and learning outcomes in conjunction with the Nursery Lead. Staff strive to ensure all children have an equal chance of success, informed by knowledge of what can be achieved.
Our nurseries, the children, families, our dedicated teams and the local community, are an integral part of the Aspire Academy Trust. We recognise the need for high quality early education where children flourish through the love and care given by all of our practitioners. 

We know the importance for our nurseries to have strong and respectful partnerships with parents so every child can develop during their early years and that everyone plays an active role in ensuring this is successful.  
Our number one goal is to ensure all children, within our family of nurseries, grow stronger and achieve through high-quality early education and the care that we are able to offer.

Welcome to Bugle Nursery
I am very proud to be the Head of Bugle School and Nursery. On behalf of our amazing pupils, our dedicated staff, parents and hub councillors I would like to welcome you to our school.

We aim to provide the best possible education for the children in our care.
Through our child-centred curriculum, children are encouraged to be independent learners and achieve their full potential. We have high expectations of what can be achieved, and we believe that learning should be both stimulating and enjoyable.

We have a dedicated staff and an active hub council which ensures that every child feels safe and secure and has a happy and successful learning experience. The welfare of every child is the concern of every member of staff.

Our most recent OFSTED report carried out in July 2022 stated that 'the Leaders have created and implemented a clear vision to ‘build a love of learning that will last a lifetime’ and that 'Children get off to a flying start in the early years. Children learn in a well-resourced and engaging environment.' The school are lucky to have a purpose built Nursery and Early Years setting which is run by two talented and knowledgeable leaders in Miss Chantelle Penhall and Mrs Jemma Davies. We are a family school, and we can only achieve our aims by working closely with you as parents. Your support is essential in your child’s success at school, and we value your input and opinions. We consider ourselves at the ‘heart of the community’ and welcome many visitors from the local area into school to work with the children and enhance their learning.

I hope that you find this booklet useful, and we look forward to welcoming you to our school.
