A Message from Mr Foale
Thank-you for your interest in our school. The children, staff, parents and governors have agreed an EPIC shared vision for Exminster Community Primary School.
Enjoyment - We want every child to enjoy coming to school, to feel secure in their friendships and to be happy to learn. Successive OFSTED inspections have noted that “Care, guidance and support are outstanding” and that “the children’s behaviour is exemplary.” We are very proud of these judgements.
Potential - We aim to help every child reach their full potential through providing a rich and varied range of learning opportunities within a broad and balanced curriculum. Learning is planned in every class to meet all needs.
Inclusion - We pride ourselves in being a highly inclusive school. Inclusion is about adapting for the needs of our learners – however minor or major their needs may be.
Community - Exminster Community Primary School plays an integral part in life of our village. In spite of our rapid growth from 80 on roll to over 330 in recent years, we aim to retain our family village school ethos.
We hope you will feel happy to subscribe to our core values and share with us as your child makes their journey through our school.

Congratulations to Mrs Fuller, recovery is needed after her exciting trip to London! Mrs Fuller received an award this week for the 'Reading Recovery Teacher of the Year' for the South West. Dawn was a runner up and presented with a certificate and an award at the prestigious ceremony in London on Friday. She beat hundreds of entries for the South West for her hard work and dedication towards Reading Recovery. Not only has Dawn gone the extra mile with the children she supports of a daily basis, she has also acted as an exemplary practitioner for members of staff, sharing her expertise and knowledge of developing children's reading. She always shows such passion and commitment, suggesting ways in which we can develop reading further for children's enjoyment and progression. Recently, Dawn has started a reading club, letting children come and enjoy their books, read to them and with them and even compose poetry. Dawn is so committed to ensuring that children believe that they themselves are a good reader, raising confidence levels and attainment. We are so proud of the work that Dawn and done, and the hard work that all the children and families have done as a consequence of Mrs Fuller's work. Well done and thank you.
