Extra Curricular

We offer a wide variety of clubs that take place during lunch breaks and after school.

These are run by members of staff, parents and outside agencies and include a full fixture list of sporting activities. Coaches from sports associations work with the children on cricket, football, tennis, and tag rugby, and Wedmore Tennis Club supports us by allowing us to use their courts.

In addition to this, the school has its own outdoor swimming pool which is used by all the children in the summer term.

Away from the sports field children can enjoy country dancing, film making, arts and craft, chess or singing, They can also learn to play the recorder, violin, guitar, keyboard, drums, piano and woodwind instruments.

Music

We offer a variety of music lessons during school time and clubs after school. Please return the relevant form to the school office if your child is interested in learning an instrument.

Sports clubs

Our sports coach Mr Coggins runs after school sports sessions on a Wednesday. 

Details of the Autumn club will follow shortly.

Breakfast & Afterschool Club

We offer Breakfast Club from 8.00 am daily (7.45 am can be arranged) & After School Club daily until 6.00 pm. If you have children at Hugh Sexey Middle School we do a drop off in the mornings and a collection after school.  We also run a holiday club throughout school holidays (excluding bank holidays & INSET days) between 8.30 & 5.30. 

For further information please contact us on 07813 710544, email wedmoreafterschoolclub@hotmail.com or pop in and find us in the school hall before or after school. 

Home Learning

Homework is set regularly to support learning done in school. Our policy is however that it should be enjoyable, interesting and manageable, so tasks vary considerably and range from daily reading, researching a topic or practicing spellings, to playing a maths game with their parents or visiting a local place of interest.

The Environment

Respect for the world around us underpins our school’s environmental education policy. Our school is one of the few in Somerset to have a thriving and growing Green Club with close links to Wedmore’s own Green Group, an organisation whose expertise and advice has helped shape our building refurbishment programme. We have also invested in efficient eco friendly energy sources.  Through our allotment the pupils are involved in the planting and growing of vegetables which supply our kitchen. We are proud of the Eco-school silver award we already hold and are working towards gaining our gold.
