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.

Bowmandale News

Mini All Stars

Mini All Stars

Yesterday, some year 3/4 went to Mini All Stars at Baysgarth school and went on lots of different indoor sports activities. We went with Miss Richardson and some parents to cheer us on and support us (they were great). The activities were fun, but needed good teamwork to do it. Surprisingly we were only against 1 school: John Harrison, it was easy really but it's not about winning only having fun. First we did the 2 meters run. Everybody enjoyed it and we would recommend it to you. We did some jumping, running and throwing. Before the relay the score was 31/32 after the relay (3 mins) the winners were… BOWMANDALE PRIMARY SCHOOL!!! We each won a medal, a certificate and a sticker.
