About ASPE and the School of Education

The Association for the Study of Primary Education (ASPE) was founded just over 25 years ago in the belief that one of the best ways to advance primary education is through professional collaboration and action.

ASPE is open to all involved in primary education and aims to promote:

  • independent and informed commentary on major issues
  • productive professional collaboration
  • independent research and reflection, including that by teachers in their own schools
  • the enhancement of practice
  • dissemination of information and good practice

ASPE is a registered charity and promotes and fosters the development of informed and reflective study of early years and primary education. ASPE brings together and promotes collaboration within and between the various constituencies involved in primary education. ASPE members include cutting-edge writers and researchers of national and international repute, classroom practitioners, local authority advisers, education consultants, university teachers and educators in the broadest sense.

The School of Education leads the way in high quality research, teaching and professional education. It is one of the largest education departments of any UK university and is currently ranked 28th in the QS World University Rankings (2016). The School works globally through our international campuses and innovative courses and locally through partnership schools, professional networks and diverse communities. 

Their suite of ‘outstanding’ teacher training programmes is one of the largest in the country. It offers a range of teacher training routes across the primary phase, emphasising practical school-based training, supported by a thorough introduction to established and current educational theory and thinking.
