ASPE and NAPE have moved even closer together through our joint sponsorship of the NAPE journal, Primary First. The link was established with issue 17 and strengthens the association’s support for the ASPE journal, Education 3 to 13.  Working together the associations provide professional comment on educational matters of interest and relevance to teachers and parents right across the spectrum from nursery school to university.
