Arrangements for Admissions
If you wish to apply for a place at Fosse Bank School:
We advise all prospective parents to visit the school so that they can experience the warm, dynamic ‘buzz’ of a working school day at Fosse Bank. Every day is an Open Day and we encourage visits at times that are convenient for all parents.
Once you have decided that you would like to proceed with an application, you will be asked to complete an Application for Admission Form, pay a Registration Fee and to arrange a Taster Day for your child.
Following a successful Taster Day, your child will be offered a place at Fosse Bank School and you will be asked to complete a Registration Form and pay a deposit to secure the place.
Our full Admissions Policy can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.

You may contact the School Office at any point in the Admissions procedure if you require any information or assistance.
Admissions during COVID-19 Disruption
In line with government guidelines the school closed on Friday 20th March until further notice.
We have moved the school to a remote learning platform using Office 365 and Zoom for video conferencing for all pupils from Early Years up to Y6.
Morning registration, maths and English lessons take place using Zoom video conferencing, meaning that for a minimum of 2 hours a day pupils are working ‘live’ with their teachers. Break out rooms are used providing extra teacher support to those pupils who require it.
Class teachers have developed daily timetables to deliver the rest of the curriculum via Teams on Office 365. Assignments are set and once completed, teachers mark online allow marking and feedback to be delivered directly back to pupils. Pupils are able to speak with teachers throughout the day if they require assistance.
Places are available throughout the school from September and whilst we cannot conduct prospective parent visits we have created a Virtual Tour to try and give you a snapshot of life at Fosse Bank.
If you are interested in joining our family then please do get in touch with our Business Manager, Mel Greener via firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange a virtual taster day for your child so they can meet the class teacher, pupils and sample some of our remote lessons.
We have also created a comprehensive transition programme for those children moving from Kindergarten to Reception and welcome parents to get in contact if they are looking for a school place for September.
