Additional Information

The Froebelian School welcomes all children and recognises that individual needs will vary. The school
will work to provide an inclusive curriculum. Teaching strategies and resources will be adapted whenever
possible to meet different needs including, if appropriate, children with diagnosed special educational
needs and disabilities, and children for whom English is not their first language. In order to help all
children to achieve their potential, we work closely with parents and carers and, where necessary, other

As a leading independent primary school in Leeds we seek to be as inclusive as possible. Part of our commitment as a charity is to try to ensure that some places are available to children irrespective of parental income or family circumstances.

In 2003, at Froebelian we began fundraising for our bursary fund and each year the governors review our commitment to providing subsidised places.

We know that our excellent education and care will provide enormous benefits to children from a wide variety of backgrounds, and we know that our school family is strengthened by a vibrant mixture of children.

Prospective parents are welcome to make enquiries regarding the possibility of bursary support; both the Headteacher and Bursar can help. If there is the possibility of a place, the parent(s) will be invited to complete a detailed form providing comprehensive information regarding the family’s financial circumstances. This will allow the school to determine what level of support might be available if a place is offered. All information is handled in strict confidence.
