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.
All our 36 schools and academies are 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 www.aspireacademytrust.org
I look forward to hopefully welcoming you to the Aspire family!

Welcome to Reception Class
We are the Reception Class Teachers!
I'm Miss Pollard and I will be teaching you every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, when you join us in September.
I'm Mrs Richards and I will be teaching you on a Thursday and Friday.
We like to make our learning fun and we do lots of creative activities in class, in our outdoor learning area and in our story garden. From wake and shake in the morning to story time at the end of the day, our aim is to ensure every child achieves their best and has fun along the way...
We are supported by the lovely Mrs Hunter, whose skills in music, arts and PE ensure our days are filled with creativity, rhythm and bounce!

Early Years Curriculum
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum. This document sets out the standards that all Early Years providers must meet to ensure the children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning and gives the children the broad range of knowledge and skills they need to develop into independent learners, building a foundation for future achievement and progression through school and beyond. We nurture a 'love for learning' here at Nansloe and each term have a specific topic upon which our learning is based taught through an exciting range of activities that both engage and excite.
