Early Years Admissions

Early Years Admissions

Working together for your child

At Fosse Bank we collaborate closely with parents of our youngest children with daily communication which may be in person, Tapestry, phone calls or email with parents.

We follow the National Early Years learning expectations but do so much more to ensure that the children have a broad range of experiences and challenge in a safe and stimulating environment.

Fosse Bank School


Staff are a mixture of those who have been at Fosse Bank a long time, and those who have joined us more recently.  All are chosen for their qualifications, teaching experience and ‘Fosseness’  incorporating enthusiasm for teaching and great pastoral qualities.

Staff are qualified first aiders and most  have a Paediatric First Aid qualification.  All staff have regular training in Safeguardingand we have four Designated Safeguarding Leaders.

What happens during a typical day?

As activities are child centred, these will vary according to the interests of individual children.

If your child is attending breakfast club between the hours of 7.30am-8.30am, please come to the main building entrance, where a member of the early years team will be there to greet you. We will continue to meet the children to the right-hand side of Fosse between the hours of 8.30am-8.45am and the same for dismissal at either 12.45pm or 3.30pm. If your child is attending wraparound care between the hours of 3.30pm-6.00pm, please also come to the main building.

Breakfast club and wraparound care should be booked with the school office please.



Copies of the school’s policies are available on the website and from the School Office.

Special needs

Our provision meets the needs of each individual child and we take account of any special needs a child may have. We work to the requirements of the Children and Families Act 2014 and The Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (2015).
