All about WASPS – the school
Weston All Saints Church of England Primary School, known as WASPS, is a large school for 4-11 year olds, set in the village of Weston on the edge of Bath. It has a good social mix with just under 20% of children from ethnic minorities and around 5% with English as a second language. Since September 1994 the school has been home to the only primary Hearing Impaired Resource Base in Bath and North East Somerset. There are pupils with special educational needs, relating to both ends of the ability spectrum.
The school has a committed staff with a wide variety of experience and expertise and is supported by a thriving PTA and Governing Body. We value our strong links with Weston All Saints Church and the Christian foundation of the school is reflected in all aspects of school life. We hold the School for Health Award.
WASPS prides itself in providing extensive opportunities in the Performing and Expressive Arts and has been awarded Arts Mark Gold four times by The Arts Council of England in 2002, 2005, 2007 and 2012. We firmly believe that children are naturally creative and that their creativity needs to be nurtured in the primary years.
A wide range of after-school activities is available to pupils, run mainly by staff. Pupils are encouraged to take part in numerous activities including sport, art, technology, music and drama.
We run a Breakfast Club and After School Centre which is led by WASPS staff.
We are a (NLE/NSS) National Leader in Education / National Support School, gaining this status in 2012. We have very strong links with Bath Spa University, the University of the West of England and with overseas Teacher Training Colleges. A large number of trainee teachers carry out their School Teacher Training Experience at WASPS each year.
