WE ARE MERGING
We are delighted to announce that the Academy and the Preschool are merging and from the 1st April will be called Wedmore First School Academy and Nursery.
We are very excited about this; the Academy is committed to doing the best for children and providing access to a high quality educational environment for all children in our local community.
The Preschool Committee, the School Governors and staff of both establishments are confident that this merger is the right decision to make at this time. We will be developing a much closer working relationship which will be of huge benefit to the 4 year olds making the transition into the reception classes.
There are exciting times ahead as the Preschool and the Academy begin to evolve as one establishment, providing care and education for children from the age of two years.

We are delighted to share with you a recent update we received from Upendo Children's Home regarding our sponsorship of Joyce a school girl in Tanzania. From the money collected at the KS2 Carol Concert we have been able to sponsor Joyce’s education for another year and she is excelling at school and continuing to work hard.
On Friday 21 March Wedmore First School Academy took part in Sport Relief and raised £397.73.
We started with a wake and shake led by children, dressed in our favourite sports kit. Jockeys, football, ballerinas, even formula one drivers enjoyed their run and had a special Sport Relief biscuit and certificates as reward. We are particularly proud of the encouragement given and enthusiasm shown.
The races winners were Y4 / Rec = Sam R & Fynn,
Y3 / Y1 = Charlie & Edward, Y2 = Maddie & Arthur.
Well done to everyone who took part.
We are looking for lunchtime supervisors/play leaders to join our happy and dedicated team of lunchtime staff
