Established in 1876, Wedmore First School Academy is located in an exceptionally beautiful and unspoiled Somerset village, surrounded by orchards and farmland, and alongside the local playing fields and tennis courts. We play an integral role in the life of Wedmore village, which enjoys a particularly strong and vibrant sense of community. Our staff and pupils participate in numerous local events and regularly attend services at St. Mary's Church. Although not affliliated to a particular religious body, religious education at the school is Christian-based and non-denominational.
"At Wedmore First School Academy and Nursery we are committed to working together, valuing each child as a whole and developing our children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning through an exciting and innovative curriculum. We strive to encourage every pupil to develop their confidence and potential. Our wish is to provide children with a firm foundation in preparation for life's challenges and to take away happy memories of their early years with us "

Early use of computers has been shown to improve language skills and promote children’s social development and creativity. But it’s not without risks for young children, who may come across inappropriate content or begin to copy what older children do online. Come to our E-safety workshop in the Learning Zone at 2.30pm on Wednesday 25 May, to learn more about how you can help your child get the most from going online safely
I would like to share some amazing news with you that we received on the last day of the spring term; after two years of applying without success, our school has been awarded a grant from central government funds to construct permanent classrooms.
This means that during the summer holidays we are going to be starting a major building project to build four new classrooms.
The classrooms will be integrated on to the main school building, replacing some of the 'temporary' Elliott classrooms that are in very poor condition. This will actually be completing the original design, prophetic as the school is celebrating its 25th birthday this year!
The building plans will shortly be displayed in school in the Learning Zone and also on our website.
We are very grateful for the help and support the school has received from local architects Benjamin and Beauchamp. A special thank you to Pat Benjamin who prepared and submitted the application documents.
We will keep you up-to-date on the progress of the project with information on our school website.
