Learning through play

We are committed to make learning exciting, meaningful and memorable for our learners.  Our curriculum enables children to make choices about their learning journey. We aim to provide quality and excellence through providing a stimulating environment which will develop social skills and encourage children to become active citizens within the school community and beyond.

Outdoors Play

Athelney is proud to be able to offer children access to the garden at all times in all weather. Our garden is well-organised and all adults are committed to allow children learn on a big scale, get messy, be noisy, get active and use all their senses and their whole body. We believe that children learn better as a direct result of physical exercise. They are able to concentrate better and are more alert.
