Play is the universal language of childhood. 

At Athersley South...

We learn, discover, explore, laugh and get messy together. We encourage independence and develop a willingness to 'have a go' in all our children.



Great Parent Links

We are keen to work closely with all our parents to ensure that our children reach their full potential. Children in the early years enjoy sharing new learning with their families and this helps them with understanding of new concepts and information.

We have put together the following links of useful websites, containing information about learning in the early years and family support sites.

If you find anymore please let us know and we will share them here for other parents to use too.

The Foundation Years 

A useful site with information about childcare, health and education


Parent Resources for Reading and Phonics
