Welcome to the website for Bowmandale Primary School. I hope that this site gives you a good insight into our school and demonstrates our commitment to creating a positive and rewarding environment in which our pupils can learn and grow.

We have high hopes for all our pupils and it is important to us that children enjoy the time they spend here. Our aim is to provide a learning experience that will help all children to make rapid progress, whatever their starting point. We want them to have the best possible start in life and help them to acquire the skills, knowledge, understanding and ambition to prepare them for life beyond the classroom. We want all of our children to achieve the very best that they can.

It's vital that we work closely with parents and carers and we encourage you to take an active interest in your child's education and school life – your contribution is valued and important. Our school is always striving to improve and we are eager to work closely with the whole school community to achieve our ambition of providing our pupils with the best possible start to their education.

Mrs L Bontoft, Headteacher

Nonsense for Nepal

Nonsense for Nepal

Hull house organised a special day to raise money to help people hurt or made homeless in the earthquakes in Nepal. They called it Nonsense for Nepal and they asked everyone to do everything backwards - wear their clothes backwards, walk backwards and eat their pudding before their main meal. They asked everyone who wanted to to make a small donation.

Some children raised extra money out of school too. Katy and Elle baked cakes and made loom bands which their parents sold at work. They wanted to thank everyone.

'Thank you to everyone for your kind donations and buying a cake or loom band. We raised £33.60 in total.'

All together the school raised £374.10. Thank you to everyone who supported this appeal.
