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.

Year 1 and 2 library visit

Library Visit

This Thursday the Year 1s and 2s visited Barton library. Jemima, the Children's Librarian for North Lincolnshire met us there. She spoke to us about the different kinds of books in the library and said that the library could get any book the children wanted. After that she read a story and then the children had an opportunity to look at the books.

We have been encouraging the children to ask if they could join the library, and those who had joined brought their library cards with them. One of the librarians showed the children how to check out a book by using one of the large machines. Jemima said that, usually, everyone is allowed to take out twenty books, but today they were only allowed one because we had to be able to carry them back to school. Most of the Year 1s and 2s had joined the library and they were very happy to be able to take away the books they had chosen.
