Welcome to Axminster Community Primary Academy

We feel very proud that you have taken the time to find out about Axminster Primary Academy which became part of the Acorn Multi Academy Trust in November 2014. The Academy provides education to children aged from 2-11 years from the local area of Axminster.

We believe passionately in helping our pupils achieve their individual best. At the heart of all our work is our belief that: ‘High Expectations lead to High Achievers’. Our high expectations extend to all aspects of the schools work: academic standards, behaviour, respect, kindness and courtesy.

Axminster Primary Academy endeavours to secure outstanding achievement, high standards of social skills and the improved life chances of all our pupils and young people. They are guaranteed a broad and balanced curriculum that prepares the children and young people for modern Britain.

All pupils are encouraged to have high expectations of what they can and will achieve, achieve the best they can, make progress in their learning, have a positive attitude towards their learning, have a healthy life style, feel safe and secure, be proud of their school and their uniform, be polite, be kind and helpful members of the community.

At Axminster Primary Academy we believe that exciting, engaging lessons, adapted individually to each child’s needs are the best way to ensure every child succeeds.

Working in partnership with our parents is valued and encouraged throughout the whole life of the school.

Saying goodbye!

Saying goodbye!

Today we say goodbye to our Year 6 children and wish them all the very best for the future.  A special leaver's assembly was held this morning, hugely supported by many parents, carers, family and friends.  Many certificates were presented along with a dictionary to each child.  Throughout the day the children have been having lots of fun, shirt signing, water play and a BBQ which was kindly provided by our P.T.F.A team.  Good luck Year 6, you will be greatly missed!

Year 6 Banquet

Year 6 Banquet

Today our Year 6 children, together with their teacher Mr. Evans, enjoyed a very fun filled lunchtime banquet.  Oak Class had chosen the menu for today which included Mrs. Williams' famous chocolate cracknell!  There are lots of fun things coming up in the next few days for our Year 6 leavers as they prepare to move on to the next chapter in their educational careers.

Visit to @Bristol

Visit to @Bristol

On Friday 1st July twenty three very excited Year 5 pupils left Axminster Community Primary Academy on their way to @Bristol Science Museum.  Travelling through Bristol they saw the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the SS Great Britain – the children had learnt about Isambard Kingdom Brunel in an assembly about Great British inventors.

When they arrived, they were greeted by a team member who gave the children their wrist bands and showed them to their area.  The children then had time to go off in groups and explore.  One pupil said “There were so many high-lights.  All I can say was it was excellent.”

Another pupil enjoyed the perception altering room.  She said, “It was really fantastic.  I loved going in the diagonal room which altered how you saw things.  It felt really weird.”

After experimenting with lots of the equipment the children visited the shop and then had lunch.

After lunch they had a little more time to explore before being met by the team who took them to our Robotics Workshop. Read & See More »

Sports Day

Sports Day

Thankfully today the rain stayed away and we were able to hold our annual Sports Day!  The children participated in various events from sideways races and woggle races to dressing up relays and the traditional egg and spoon races.  A huge thank you to all the parents, carers, families and friends who came to support the children.  It was a great opportunity for the children to show off their sporting talents.  Our thanks must also go to our P.T.F.A team for providing refreshments for our spectators.  

And now the results are in!!  Red Team 85 points, Yellow Team 83 points, Green Team 70 points and Blue Team 69.  Congratulations to the Red Team and well done to everyone for the hard work and effort you all put in.
