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
Statutory information about our school is conveniently collected on our Key Information page.
On 13th September we celebrated Roald Dahl's 101st birthday with lots of Roald Dahl Day activities.
In the morning we read some of Roald Dahl's poetry and stories, found out about his exciting life and created our own Roald Dahl inspired work.
At 2 o'clock we joined hundreds of other schools around the country to take part in a live video feed from the Roald Dahl museum. We heard lots about the book 'Billy and the Minpins', took part in a quiz to find out which Roald Dahl character we were most like, and even drew along with the famous illustrator Quentin Blake!
Some classes will be continuing their Roald Dahl work for the rest of the week.
