Welcome to Axminster Community Primary Academy

Welcome to Axminster Community Primary Academy

Our school, which has a high reputation for so many things, prides itself on having a sound, traditional approach to subjects but with the best of new technology and good quality facilities for the children. 

Axminster Primary Academy is rather special; you have only to approach the school to see that it is different from others. There is ample evidence outside to show that a caring attitude has been used in the environment and even more important is the fact that parents and inspectors have remarked that this caring attitude is transferred to relationships within the School. We are proud of this fact. Children are at the heart of Axminster Community Primary Academy and each child is encouraged to achieve the highest standard possible in all aspects of school life.

I hope you find the information on our website useful and informative, but obviously the best way to get a real feel about us is to come and visit us, look around and meet the children and staff.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to arrange a visit.

Fundraising for Syria

Fundraising for Syria

This morning the school held a special assembly and invited Mr. Byworth, accompanied by Rev. d'Albertanson from the Axminster Church Community, to receive donations for the Syria and Iraq Crisis Appeal (www.samarasaldappeal.org).  Our Head Boy and Girl and their deputies have been busy fundraising for this appeal and raised a fantastic £93.98.  A special thank you must also go to Mrs. Enticott and her daughter who kindly made and donated baby blankets.  Mr. Byworth will be keeping us updated with the progress of the appeal.  Thank you to all parents, carers, children, staff and friends who kindly donated items and money for the school fundraising.  Click on the title to view further photographs.

Year 6 fundraisers

Year 6 fundraisers

Our Head Boy and Head Girl and their deputies have been busy organising a fundraiser for the Syria and Iraq Crisis Aid Appeal.  They have shown great maturity in how they have organised themselves to support this appeal.  The children have spoken to all classes about items that may be brought in to school to be donated and have raised funds by running a guess the name of the soft cat competition, a treasure map hunt, a guess the number of sweets in a jar competition and selling books, cakes and soft toys.  This fundraiser will be continuing next week.  The winner of the soft cat is pictured here with our Head Boy and his deputy.

New Year 6 Headships

New Year 6 Headships

Today, during our first Star Book assembly after the Easter break, the new Head Boy and Girl and their deputies were chosen and invited up on stage to be presented with their respective badges.  They were applauded by the whole school, parents and carers.  These Year 6 children were chosen because they showed a matured approach and reliability and the staff feel that they would be excellent ambassadors for the school.

Sycamore Class Fundraiser

Sycamore Class Fundraiser

In school this week Sycamore Class organised their own fundraiser as part of their project ‘Do we make the most of the space around us?’  The children ran their own stalls including: guess the teddy’s name, find the hidden treasure, a colouring competition and what’s in the sock?  The children have been busy scaling up recipes to make large batches of gingerbread people, fairy cakes and chocolate fridge cake.  Everyone had a great time and many chocolate prizes were enjoyed!  The class raised a fantastic £74.67 which will go towards outside school projects. Thank you to everyone who supported us.
