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
