We are a very large primary school situated in Aspley in the North of Nottingham, with just under 700 children on roll. Despite being such a large school, we pride ourselves on supporting individual children and families. We feel it is essential that every child feels valued, is well supported and has a sense of belonging.

We are proud to be a member of the Transform Multi Academy Trust and work closely as a partnership of schools in order to ensure the best possible outcomes for all children.

Additionally we also work closely with our local family of schools, the Primary 6 Partnership, on a number of exciting projects that enhance and enrich the school curriculum.

Our school was built in 2006 and we have invested heavily in ensuring that the building reflects the investment that we put into our children. This has involved creating four houses – Castle, Sherwood, Trent and Highfields. Children collect house points for the work they produce and the winning house is rewarded every half term.

Our Vision, Ethos and Values:
A successful vision for inner city education must recognise that the needs of the pupils cannot be addressed without acknowledging the needs of the community.
Because we recognise our responsibility for each individual child, our school must:

We will:
Ensure each pupil’s needs are met as fully and effectively as possible to equip them for life in their society.
Value each pupil’s efforts unconditionally.
Work in a culture of achievement and high self-esteem.
Engage in professional dialogues to explore and address individual needs.
Support families in supporting their children.
Be at the heart of the community we serve.
We will:
Act as a community resource.
Seek opportunities to provide for the needs of the school community.
Respect, value and utilise the diversity within our community.
Work in partnership with other establishments and agencies to improve community provision.
Promote independent learning for life.
We will:
Begin in the Foundation Stage.
Place an emphasis on investigative, experiential and creative activities.
Provide high quality opportunities for children to develop their thinking skills.
Focus on Speaking and Listening as a key to developing independence.
Use targets as a means to involve children in their learning.
Provide a rich and varied curriculum that promotes key skills and opportunities for their application.
Have positive attitudes.
We will:
Support, not blame.
Offer opportunities, not excuses.
Have high expectations of pupils, staff, parents and governors.
Promote education beyond the curriculum and education for all.
Have high standards.
We will:
Use data to set challenging targets.
Strive to support pupils to meet and exceed their targets.
Use CPD to improve our teaching and learning.
Never settle for second best.
Challenge underachievement in all areas of school life.
Be a school that others visit to see what “good practice” means.
Provide a safe, secure and happy environment for learning.
Know ourselves and help others to know us.
We will:
Review our practices and procedures regularly, stringently and honestly.
Use data to inform ourselves of our successes and areas to develop.
Involve our stakeholders in our plans for improvement.
Be open to constructive criticism and new ideas.
Publicise our successes and be proactive with the Media.
We will work as one staff, one team, with one common goal – to succeed for the children of Aspley..
A school that succeeds plays a part in raising the esteem of a community. A community that believes in itself succeeds.
We aspire to be a school that good teachers will want to work in, that committed parents will want to send their children to and that pupils will succeed in.
