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

World Book Day

World Book Day

Today we celebrated World Book Day where we all dressed up as a book character and brought in our favourite book. There was a range of book characters such as Harry Potter, Mr Bump, Paddington Bear, Little Red Riding Hood and the Gruffalo to name but a few.

Throughout the day the bell rang and we dropped everything and read. Each class completed a book review and the best one from each class won a £5 Waterstones book token. All the children received a £1 book token which they can use at the book fair on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th March or at well known bookshops.

There was a buzz of excitement throughout the school and it was great to see all the children and staff taking part.
