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.
Statutory information about our school is conveniently collected on our Key Information page.

This afternoon, we all went onto the field for our annual ball throwing competition. Three girls and three boys competed from each upper school year group. It was a close competition which was enjoyed by everybody. The results will be announced soon, at the upper school sports day.
Last year, we asked the year 5 children to design a garden for the school including working out the cost of their design using the money donated by Tesco. The children worked in groups and the winning design has now been turned into a real garden. This morning, the whole school gathered together to watch the winning team cut the ribbon to mark the official opening. The garden will be a quiet space that will be enjoyed year round by the children. The designers also hope it will encourage wildlife and they have included a bird table with feeders that the classes take turns to fill. Thank you again to Tesco for supporting projects in our local community.
We were lucky to have such a beautiful day today for our picnic to celebrate the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The cooks prepared packed lunches for the children who usually have school dinners and everyone sat out on the sunny field. The children were also all given a special commemorative coin to take home as a gift from the school.
