Our Vision

Axminster Primary Academy is a school where the community is at the heart of what we do, working to enable children to grow creatively and to achieve their best in a happy and secure environment.

 

‘I AM THE LEARNER; HIGH EXPECTATIONS, CHALLENGE AND OPPORTUNITIES’.

Core Values

Our high expectations extend to all aspects of the school's work: our values are clear:

Each child in Axminster Community Primary is Unique - we will develop their learning to become resilient, confident and capable citizens of the community. We build upon and value our strong and positive Relationships with others - this will help them become independent and have a sense of belonging.  We have a school Environment which we care for and promotes stimulating opportunities and challenge for all children. These values added together will ensure that children develop and learn throughout the school.

We live in a world that is increasingly culturally diverse and dynamically interconnected, it is important that our children, in Axminster, come to understand their world, past and present, and develop a capacity to respond to challenges, now and in the future, in innovative, informed, personal and collective ways.

Our curriculum and school plays an important role in harnessing pupils’ curiosity and imagination about the world they live in and empowers them to actively shape their lives; make reflective, informed decisions; value their belonging in a diverse and dynamic society; and positively contribute locally, nationally, regionally and globally.
