On Friday 21 March Wedmore First School Academy will be taking part in Sports Relief.
We would like the children to come to school dressed as their favourite sports personality or dressed to play their favourite sport. Please bear in mind that we will be outside on the field and it may be muddy (so children will need to bring a change of footwear or they may want to arrive in school in their running gear and change after the event).
The children will be taking part in a whole school wake and shake at 9.15am then followed by a paired ‘Wedmile’ race around the school field and adjacent pitch. Parents/carers are welcome to watch but please do this from the path adjacent to the sports pavilion.
Approximate timings for the races are:
Year 4 and Reception – 9.30am
Year 3 and Year 1 – 10.00am
Year 2 -10.30am
Key Stage 2 can then take part in an optional time trial at 11am
Each group will finish in the hall for refreshments and awards will be given out during celebration assembly in the afternoon.
We are asking for a donation of £2.00 per child with proceeds going towards Sports Relief. Please hand your donation into your class teacher on the day.
In the event of bad weather the children will be taking part in a sports activity in the school hall. Unfortunately in this event parents/carers cannot attend due to lack of space.
Thank you for your continued support.

Please find below the issued regarding the residential trip to Kilve Court for our year 4 pupils. The trip will take place between Wednesday 26 March and Friday 28 March 2014.
We hope the winter will not be too unkind but in view of the problems we have experienced in the past, the following points might form useful guidance in the event of extreme weather conditions.
If bad weather conditions arise please contact the parents in the attached policy who have agreed to act as emergency information officers and will be, wherever possible, given current information regarding school closures.
Please DO NOT ring the school as we will need to keep the school telephone line free to pursue arising problems.
We are sure that you are aware that statements are broadcast about all school closures by local radio so stay tuned.

However, as a rule you should always assume that the school WILL BE OPEN.
The most important concern is the safety and wellbeing of our children at all times.

I am delighted to report that Wedmore First School Academy is in the final stages of merger negotiations with Wedmore Preschool - currently a charity run by a committee of its parents and the Manager, Maxine Ingrouille-Kidd . The decision to merge was ratified by Preschool parents at their Annual General Meeting in June and has the full support of the Board of Trustees. We hope to complete discussions by the start of the next academic year at which point Preschool will formally become part of Wedmore First School Academy allowing us to provide early years education from the age of 2 years.
If you have any questions regarding this exciting new development please do not hesitate to ask
