New Reception Parents

Welcome to the newest members of our Athelney Family 21/22 


We want to wish a very warm (if virtual) welcome to Athelney Primary School to all of our new families. This page is just for you and we hope you will find it really useful! In the coming days and weeks we will post lots of useful information including links to our virtual welcome meetings, virtual visits, information booklets and lots more. 


We know your child starting Reception in normal times can be an anxious time but under the current circumstances even more so. We are here to support you in any way we can. 


In the meantime if you have any questions, queries, worries, ideas of things that would make this webpage better, please contact us through the or ring the office on 020 8697 2945
