Who are NAPE?
‘Nape speaks for young children and all who live and work with them. Our aim to achieve a higher priority for the education of children from birth to 13. High quality learning in the early years of life is vitally important to the creation of an educated society. Young children are not simply preparing for the future, they are living a never to be repeated time of life and the best way to learn is to live.’

THE WAY WE WORK FOR PRIMARY EDUCATION

The National Association for Primary Education (NAPE) brings together everyone who has a concern for the learning of children from birth to 13 years. Members and affiliated schools work to improve education through the Early, Primary and Middle Years.

  • All are welcome as members; Heads, Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Parents, School Governors. Inspectors, Administrators and entire School Communities.
  • Members have an important voice exercised democratically. We influence public opinion and regular meetings are held with government ministers. The association is totally neutral politically.
  • There are meetings of members both locally and nationally. Local associations can be formed.
  • Conferences and workshops are arranged both locally and nationally.
  • The association is administered by an elected National Council meeting termly to review progress and discuss national issues. Detailed administration is delegated to an Executive Committee which reports to the Council.
  • NAPE is a prominent member of the Primary Umbrella Group which brings together all organisations working in the primary sector including subject associations and unions. This is a new and rapidly developing field of work which is facilitating cooperation and partnership.
  • All aspects of education are experienced by children in their primary schools and we have strong links with subject associations.We often engage in cooperative ventures with them.

Choose to live your life in gratitude with Georgian Benta. LF 003

Georgian Benta from the Gratitude Podcast joins me on the Learning on Fire podcast and explores the most important learning and educational moments that shaped his life.

Our guest – Georgian Benta

Most of us have to make a conscious effort to be grateful, we need an experience or some contrasting story that we hear about to remind us that we can be grateful and that we really should be.

My goal with this project is to inspire those that find it harder to be grateful, to choose to live a life filled with gratefulness or at least to get a boost of this amazing feeling when things don’t seem to go the right way.

My vision is to inspire 100,000 people to focus on gratitude and on what makes them grateful in their life. Help me spread the word and share what you find on this blog with your friends and family, with the ones that need it most.
