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.

Head of Axminster Community Primary Academy.

Taster Session Part 2

Taster Session Part 2

Today our Year 4 and 5 children took part in the second taster session courtesy of Go-Active.  The children were well equipped with helmets and pads and had a go at "Street Surfing."  They all had a great time in our playground getting to grips with trying out a new skill and some children even managed to "surf" unaided.

1950's Day

1950's Day

Today the school held a non-uniform day with the theme of the 1950s.  This was organised by a group of our Year 6 children, who are studying the 1950's in class, to raise funds for the charity WaterAid.  There were some fabulous outfits and everyone really got into the spirit of the theme and the best dressed boy & girl were selected from each class as shown in our picture.  Our thanks go to parents and friends who did a fantastic job of helping the children with their outfits.

Special Visitors

Special Visitors

Yesterday our Reception class were treated to some very special visitors.  They had the pleasure of meeting Woody the stick insect, Elizabeth the python, Rosa the spider and Merry and Tipsy the ferrets!  This was an animal handling session courtesy of The Axe Valley Bird & Animal Park.  The children learnt all about how to care for the animals and their different diets and also had the opportunity to touch the animals in a safe environment.
