Athelney Primary is a two form entry primary school. Due to the high demand for school places across London we are sometimes asked to admit an additional class of Reception children. As such, we currently have 3 classes in Year 3.
We are a fully inclusive school and are incredibly proud of our outstanding Resource Base for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder which opened in 2010. In 2016, we not only received the Inclusion Quality Mark Award, but we also became the only Centre of Excellence for Inclusion in the London Borough of Lewisham. In 2019 we became the first school in Lewisham to receive the prestigious Flagship Status for Inclusion.

There are two methods of entry into Athelney:
