Athelstan Primary School is a wonderfully vibrant community, where children and adults from many diverse cultures, beliefs and backgrounds blend together to create Team Athelstan. We are an incredible team, who work very hard and who genuinely want to make the difference for all our pupils. We are looking for an unqualified teacher to become part of this team.

Prior to the pandemic, our pupils generally achieved well, often exceeding national standards in formal tests. Just as importantly, however, we believe that the broader provision we offer our pupils is crucial to developing the whole child and his or her unique interests and talents. Our varied curriculum has enabled us to achieve many awards, recognising the high quality of our subject leadership and delivery; these include the Primary Science Gold quality mark and more recently the Primary Science Gilt quality mark, the Gold Sports’ mark, the Silver Arts’ mark and the Silver Geography mark. In addition to these awards, we were also granted Green Flag Eco-school status in summer 2021.
For a number of years, we were the model school for Read, Write, Inc in Sheffield until this system stopped last year.
