Welcome to Spaxton School
Headteacher: Mr James Blackmore
Spaxton Church of England School is in the centre of the village of Spaxton, situated in the beautiful Quantock countryside. It is a thriving village with many young families and a strong sense of community which extends over all age groups.
The main school building was built in 1860 from money donated by Mary Taunton whose initials appear on the school logo. This building contains the main hall and the library. Over the years two further classrooms have been added and a few years ago a third new classroom was built.
We are a voluntary controlled school which means that the Church of England is represented on the Governing Body.
At the time of writing there are eighty-four 4 to 11 year old boys and girls in the school. This gives the opportunity for the school to have a warm family atmosphere in which the children and staff get to know each other well.
The children are taught within three class groups usually containing two or three year groups. We are a well resourced school with a high level of adult support to facilitate individual and small group work.
The school has a wrap around care provision and offers a Breakfast Club from 8.00am daily and an After School Club from 3.15pm to 5.30 pm daily.
The school also has a hot meal service provided by A Star Catering.
We are members of the Quantock Group (linked with Haygrove Secondary School and Otterhampton, Cannington, Nether Stowey,St Mary's,Enmore and Stogursey Primary Schools). This gives us the opportunity to share teacher expertise and expensive equipment among the schools. The children work together on a variety of topics throughout the year.
You are warmly invited to visit our school. You will form a far clearer impression of the school from seeing us at work and play.

Emergency Closure Procedures:
We do endeavour to keep the school open but in the case of severe weather, where it would be too dangerous for staff to be travelling in, we may need to close the school. If the school is to be closed you will be notified by text (about 7 am) and the information will be given out via the local radio and on the Somerset Learning Platform via Somerset County Council website. Please ensure we have an up to date mobile number. We will not be able to phone parents via land lines.
