Slideshow of images of school

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

Imagination Library Celebration

Imagination Library Celebration

Today, some special visitors joined us for an Imagination Library event to celebrate the first year of the scheme in the Barton area.

The Imagination Library was founded by singer and actress Dolly Parton to provide reading opportunities for under 5s. Many parents in the area have already signed up to receive a free book through the post every month for their child and, for those who haven't already signed, volunteers were available to help with the enrollment process.

As part of the event, Kirsty from the Rhubarb Theater Company came along to enthrall our Foundation children with an interactive re-telling of 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'.

You can find out more about the Imagination Library at imaginationlibrary.com.
