Our latest Ofsted Report from October 2016 shows how much the school has improved over the last five years. The staff work extremely hard on behalf of our children ensuring that children leave Fosse ready for the challenges of Secondary school. We have high expectations for everyone at Fosse and, as an ethnically diverse school with, at the last count, forty languages spoken by our families, offer a curriculum which supports all children according to their need, regardless of their age, gender, disability, religion, belief, race or socio-economic background.

We are also pleased to offer an increasing range of after school clubs; we have a breakfast club before school and offer holiday clubs during the Easter and summer holidays.

Although we focus primarily on the academic education of our pupils, we look carefully at the whole child. We aim to create an increasingly inclusive school where all children are valued and supported according to their needs. The mobile at the front of the school houses two classes as well as 'The Island' where we support children who benefit from working in a much smaller group; this provision has supported children from Year 1 to Year 4 to develop in confidence in order to access the wider curriculum more successfully. In September 2014 we employed a part-time Family Support Facilitator to support families who may be experiencing difficulties.

About Us

Our Aims and Values

At Fosse Primary School we aim to provide a safe, happy and stimulating learning environment which enables each child to reach his or her full potential by:

Working as a team comprising children, staff, parents, governors, outside agencies and visitors in line with our school motto:

Together Everyone Achieves More

Valuing the contribution of each individual within that team;

  • Providing a broad and varied curriculum planned to suit the individual child yet within the ‘EYFS’ National Curriculum framework and broader school curriculum.
  • Promoting fairness and good standards of behaviour and discipline through a Positive Behaviour Policy.
  • Showing and encouraging respect and tolerance for each other and the whole school community;
  • Promoting equality of opportunity regardless of race, religion, gender, social background or ability;
  • Promoting links with other schools as well as the local and wider community; Recognising needs and nurturing strengths;
  • Encouraging pupils at all times to develop positive learning characteristics

As a result of such an environment we hope our children will:

  • Be confident and at ease with themselves and others;
  • Become independent, self disciplined and self motivated;
  • Have respect for themselves, each other and the environment;
  • Be keen to learn and able to set, and achieve, realistic goals of a high standard;
  • Be valued as an individual and as a member of the community, both within the school and beyond;
  • Become literate, numerate, communicative, creative and co-operative.
