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 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 "

Wedmore School of
Magic and Mystery
We are pleased to be able to provide you with some details regarding our forthcoming World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March 2017.
Your child has been invited to Wedmore School of Magic and Mystery to celebrate World Book Day 2017. Pupils are encouraged to come to school on Thursday 2nd March dressed as magical and mysterious characters and creatures from their favourite books.
In the build up to World Book Day the Scholastic Book Fair will be in the school from Thursday 23rd February to Wednesday 1st March. The bookcases will be in the Learning Zone 3:25 - 4:00 each afternoon for you to purchase books. Some of the money from previous book fairs was used to buy class sets of dictionaries, thesauruses and reading books. Any books bought or ordered through the book fair raises commission for further reading resources in school. Children will be able to use their World Book Day tokens at the book fair.
The Bestiary Competition
As part of our studies at Wedmore School of Magic and Mystery we are compiling a bestiary of magical and mysterious beasts. Using the template provided pupils are encouraged to design and name a magical creature. There will be prizes of vouchers to spend at the book fair for the most creative entries in four age groups: Nursery, Foundation Stage, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. Completed entries must be returned to the school office by Friday 24th February.
Thank you for your continued support.

Wedmore First School Academy is in need of supply staff who can help at times when permanent staff are sick or on training courses. We are looking for people who could help in the main school in a teacher assistant role or in a lunchtime supervisor role or as assistant in the nursery.
We are also in need of a cleaner to work after school from 3.30pm to 7pm Monday to Friday. This is a term time position with one week in the holidays for deep cleaning. We will consider a job share.
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.
