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.

Ingrid Edginton

Head of School (Acting) Axminster Community Primary Academy.

New Parent Info Website Launched

New Parent Info Website Launched

Welcome to Parent Info

The Government has recently launched a new website called Parent Info aimed at helping parents keep their children safe online, as well as providing helpful advice on a wide range of parenting topics. We have put a link to Parent Info on the front page of all our school websites so parents can easily visit the website and find out more information about keeping their children safe online. 

Who is behind Parent Info? 

Parent Info is a collaboration between CEOP and The Parent Zone. 

The Parent Zone(link is external) was founded in 2005 and has a track record of providing information, support and advice to parents. In recent years, The Parent Zone's work has focused on the impact of digital technologies on families. We provide information, resources and training for parents and those who work with them.  Read & See More »

Guide Dogs

Guide Dogs

Chestnut Class were fortunate enough this week to have a visit from 'Guide dogs for the Blind'. A speaker came in to explain to the children about the life and work of guide dogs in the community.  They learnt about how dogs are trained, the equipment involved and even got to meet a retired labrador, Delta, aged 9 and 1/2.

Up to 20 and beyond!

Up to 20 and beyond!

As part of their maths learning Beech Class have been counting objects and playing with numbers. Starting with 10 and moving up to 20, the class are now able to start counting beyond 20.

Children were also challenged to make larger numbers with numicon. One class member used his knowledge of number bonds to 10 to count up to 300 (and write it down correctly!)
