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.

Mural Artwork - Part 2

Mural Artwork - Part 2

Year 6 were continuing with the Mural Artwork today.  The children have been developing ideas in teams to create important buildings in Axminster in clay.  They have learnt how in imprint the shape of the building into the clay, about firing the clay and how to glaze the clay.  The next stage is to draw the landscape, people and other buildings onto the mural.

Bikeability

Bikeability

Today some of our Year 6 students are beginning a week of road safety awareness for cyclists through "Bikeability".  This course of cycling proficiency is funded by the Department of Transport in partnership with Devon County Council and it is designed to give children the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today's roads.  Let's hope that the weather is kind to us for the rest of the week!

Today in our Art class, Year 6 started working on their ideas for our Mural Artwork with our Art teacher Mrs Dee Hogarth.  This mural will tell the story of  Axminster Community Primary Academy and the local and wider community of our academy.  All the children will have the opportunity to take part in this process over the coming weeks and we look forward to seeing this venture unfolding.

Sponsored Run

Sponsored Run

Today Axminster Community Primary Academy held their 25th annual sponsored run which was very kindly sponsored by The Rotary Club of Axminster.  The weather was kind to us and the children were as enthusiastic as ever with our Key Stage 1 children completing 10 laps of their course whilst the older Key Stage 2 children completed 20 or more laps of theirs.  At the end of the event each child was presented with their own medal.  Monies raised by this event will go towards various projects within the school.  Our thanks goes to all the parents, relatives and friends who continue to support our school.
