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 safe, 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 positive, nurturing learning environment for all children to enable them to achieve their potential and be the best that they can be. 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 their very best.

Mrs E Dunstan, Head Teacher

Year 6 Leavers' Assembly

Leavers Assembly   Leavers Assembly

This morning, parents, children and staff joined together to say goodbye to our Year 6s. As always, it was an emotional experience listening to all the memories and remembering all the times we have shared together. Mr Kipling, from Barton Rotary Club, presented the children with calculators as a gift for the school's support, which we are very grateful for, then the whole school lined up and took turns to shake their hands.

All the staff at Bowmandale are incredibly proud of our Year 6s and we wish them the very best at their new schools.

On Thursday 13th of July the year six pupils attended Costello Stadium to participate in various events. This included 100m, 400m 800m and relay, and there were several different stations that included: skipping, egg and spoon, long jump and many more. We are glad to say that most of the Bowmandale competitors won in the track events. After all, Bowmandale won again for the second time running. Well done Bowmandale!
