AGM Meeting

Our annual general meeting will take place on Thursday 4th May. 8.00pm in the Swan.

It comes with great sadness that we will be saying goodbye to many of our members as their children leave Athelstan in July. As these members hang up their shoes, we are asking for new members to step forward. We will vote at our AGM to fill the position of Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.

Can we take this opportunity to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that has supported us so far this year. We would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and look forward to more fund raising activities in the new year

 A polite reminder to those children who agreed to take part in the Grow a Pound challenge, please can we ask you to return your monies the first week back after Christmas. Please pop in a named envelope and hand to your class teacher. Many thanks to those who have already handed in your profits we have been shocked at the amount so far...just over £400 and still more to come in. Well Done and Thank You.

 4 of our members will be out collecting with Elmet Lions on Sunday, please cross your fingers for a dry evening we will inform you of the amount collected in the new year. 

A couple of weeks children brought home a bag to fill with unwanted re-use able adults/children’s clothing, paired shoes, hats, belts handbags, ties and/or soft toys .Bags were brought into school on Monday 5th December.The bags were weighed and converted into cash. The total amount raised from the collection was £65.60. Thank you to everyone who took part.


The Friends of Athelstan are holding the Christmas Fair at the Eversley Community Centre on Saturday November 26th . The Fair will take place between 12pm and 3pm. This is a great chance to get into the Christmas spirit, grab a turkey sandwiche, enjoy a hot drink in the Christmas cafe...and a meet the special guest who will be arriving with his little helper.

All profits raised from the Fair will be used for the benefit of all Athelstan pupils.

The total amount raised at the Fair was £781.16

We had a good response to the 'Grow a Pound' letters that were sent to families and the children should now have received their pounds. We hope the children have great fun coming up with creative ways to grow their pounds and look forward to hearing all about it!
We are really pleased to be able to share some fantastic news with you all! We have received confirmation from Elmet Lions of a £1000 donation towards our new playground. This is an amazing amount and sets us off towards our £10,000 target. We are hugely grateful to the lions as I'm sure you all are too! Thankyou very much

A huge thank you to all the families that bought a lotto number.We can confirm that we raised £315.00 towards the new playground equipment from the lotto sales.. Good luck to everyone who has a number.Winners will be drawn in assembly every month.

Our next event will be the fabulous Dicky Bow Disco on Thursday 3rd November. Can we just remind parents and carers that as the number of children in school has increased we will be having three separate discos instead of two, in order to accommodate the increased numbers. Hence the traditional timings have therefore now changed slightly.

Disco 1  3:00-3:45pm   Puddles and Sunshines FS1+ FS2 (parents do need to stay)

Disco 2  4:00-4:45pm  KS1  Year 1 and 2 (parents do not need to stay)

Disco 3  5:00-6:00pm  KS2   Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 (parents do not need to stay)

Tickets will be on sale from 17th October priced £2.00 each. Can we please take this opportunity to ask for volunteers to help at any of the disco times as shown above. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can organise a fun filled fundraising event or leave your name at the school office. Without your support these events will struggle to take place. Finally a huge thank you for your continued support

Thank you to all those children who entered the Roald Dahl colouring competition, it looks like Athelstan have some very talented artist... watch out Quentin Blake!

The Friends of Athelstan would like to wish a warm welcome to our new parents and welcome back to those who are returning. We have a big aim of raising around £10000 this academic year so that we can fund new wooden play equipment for our Key Stage 2 children.

The Friends of Athelstan hosted a great fundraising event at the school and raised a total of £900.00. The school would like to thank the friends for their hard work in organising the event and for all their efforts in making it a great success.
