Lewisham Fire Fighters on Red Watch were amazing! We had a great trip!

In a week of reflection I have found these words to be so true.


"Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future."

The children have had a fantastic start to their year at Athelney. They have settled in beautifully and made lots of new friends. I hope you are as proud as we are.

12th October – Downham Library Trip


We are so proud of Star Class who behaved beautifully on our first class trip. Well done to all the children. They were so sensible when we were walking and travelling on the bus.


The library staff said they were impressed by how grown up the children were and we are welcome back anytime.


Downham Library is a really great library with lots of events for children. Here is what’s going on there in October.

Second Week at School


What a great week we had. The children are making lots of new friends and learning our daily routines.

We even started learning phonics. Here is the link to the Jolly Phonics Song which we sing to practice the sounds.

First Week At School!!


Well done to Star Class who have had a great first week at school.


Here are a few things we have done.

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.
