We pride ourselves on nurturing all of our pupils through our school Christian values: courage, humility, truthfulness, friendship, thankfulness and trust. These values underpin all that we do, ensuring high quality relationships and positive attitudes to learning.

All Saints CE Primary School is a Church of England Primary School situated a mile from Axminster.

The school is adjacent to All Saints Parish Church and overlooks the village of Smallridge from its position on high ground. It was built in 1856 and has seen many changes; it has grown from a 2 class school of 14 children (1986) to 4 classes with approximately 105 children on roll.

The school aims to create a happy and caring Christian atmosphere where those who attend feel secure and confident.

We have close links with other schools in East Devon and Exeter and we are a feeder school for Axe Valley Community College although we also have pupils that move onto Woodroffe, Holyrood Academy and Colyton Grammar School.
