Policies & Admissions


King Athelstan is a community school with admissions managed by The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames Local Authority.

For more information on school admissions, please refer to the Local Authority website.

Nursery admissions are organised through the school. Please contact the school office for an application form or complete the standard RBK Nursery application form and return it to the school office.


Emily Newton, Headteacher, and Tim Holmes, Assistant Headteacher, are the designated safeguarding leads for the school. Denise Ramkissoon, Nurture Lead, is their deputy.


The school has a consistent behaviour policy which runs through the school. It is based on children making good choices and taking responsibility for their actions. Children work hard to earn a "green card" which is awarded by staff to celebrate their achievements and positive contributions to the school community.

In October 2011, Ofsted rated behaviour in the school as "good" and noted in their inspection visit:

Pupils behave well throughout the school and they are enthusiastic learners.

Inclusion at King Athelstan

The progress of every child is central to our ethos; one size doesn't fit all. We carefully plan support to meet the needs of all children, including those identified as More Able, Gifted and Talented (MAGT), those with Special Educational Needs (SEN), English as an Additional Language (EAL), and those with additional needs.

The senior leadership team meets with class teachers each half term to monitor progress and attainment. They discuss the needs of all the children in each class to make sure that every child has differentiated work to meet their needs and that they are both supported and challenged.

Our Assistant Headteacher, Mr Tim Holmes, is our inclusion manager:

My primary role at King Athelstan is to lead and manage inclusion at the school. I lead an inclusion team which comprises one teacher and two teaching assistants who work directly with identified pupils across the school. I oversee the work done by class teachers and classroom-based teaching assistants to support these pupils.

My work also involves liaising with a range of outside professionals (e.g. educational psychologists, peripatetic support staff, social workers) to provide a cohesive package of support for children and their families. Meetings with parents of children on the School Inclusion Register are another regular part of my work in school, with a close partnership between school and home being seen by the school as the best possible way to support children with specific needs.
