Welcome to Mrs Ethelston's CE Primary Academy

Welcome to Mrs Ethelston's CE Primary Academy

At Mrs Ethelston's, we are proud of our friendly and family atmosphere where we get to know each child whilst fostering a sense of community responsibility.

Our Christian values underpin everything we do, providing a safe, supportive and encouraging environment in which we recognise each unique individual. We set high standards of achievement and behaviour whilst ensuring that the childrens school days are enjoyable.

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 Mrs Ethelston's, look around and meet the children and staff.

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

PTFA Christmas Bazaar 28th November

This year the Mrs Ethelston's PTFA Christmas Bazaar is being held in the Village Hall at 3.30 pm on Friday November 28th. This year the PTFA are raising funds for an outside learning area at the school. There will be lots of stalls and Santa's Grotto, and this is sure to be as busy and popular as ever. Everyone welcome!

Flamingo Pool - People's Millions Vote

Thank you from the Flamingo Pool in Axminster to all our parents and staff who voted in the People's Millions TV show . All our schools use the Flamingo Pool for swimming lessons, and many parents and children use the pool regularly, so we are delighted that they have received a cheque for £50,000 to purchase an Aqua Gym for use by the whole community.

Launch of Acorn Multi Academy Trust

Four local schools have joined together to create the new Acorn Multi Academy Trust.  Mrs Ethelston’s Uplyme, St Andrew’s Chardstock, Axminster Community Primary School and Marshwood Primary School have converted to academies and will form The Acorn Multi Academy Trust coming into effect from 1st November 2014. The schools will leave their respective Local Authorities, Devon and Dorset, to become a free standing group of schools directly funded from central government. Representatives of local people will be directly responsible for the quality and development of the education of local children.

Whilst the four schools will operate under the umbrella of the Acorn Academy Trust each will maintain its own distinctive ethos and the parents are reassured that the identity of the three Church of England schools and the one community school will be carefully preserved through the oversight of their individual governing bodies.

This exciting opportunity brings the four schools into a highly effective, close knit, educational organisation which brings enjoyment and success for the pupils and satisfaction and professional development for all the staff. Read & See More »

Mrs E's Netball Success

The Mrs E's netball club is lucky to be full of really enthusiastic girls and boys from years 4 to 6. This made picking a squad to take to the local netball tournament really difficult. Commitment, enthusiasm, previous netball experience and ability were all factors that were taken into account. The team did us proud and during a fun packed tournament (on a full sized court - WOW!), Mrs E's came away as the winners with a place in the next round - an area tournament at Beaminster in March 2015. Look out for our next fixture, a friendly against Charmouth in the near future.  Mum's, don't let your children have all the fun. Get fit and meet others in the community. Come along to the  'Back 2 Netball' sessions that start on 4 Nov 14 at Colyton Sports Centre, 7.30-8.30pm. Sarah and Teresa, who coach the Mrs E's netball club, will be running these sessions in association with The All England Netball Association.
