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.

House Relay

On the last day before Easter, we held our postponed Sport Relief house relay race. Each house chose five volunteers to race and we all went out on a gloriously sunny morning to watch and cheer. It was a close run race with one house taking the lead only to be overtaken by another. In the end the results were:

1st place - Trent
2nd place - Hull
3rd place - Ancholme
4th place - Humber
5th place - Ouse

Well done to all the runners!

Year five and six have had an excellent day out at Eden Camp, despite the rain! Fortunately, there were plenty of fascinating huts to shelter in, each one with its own theme such as 'Women at War', 'The Great Escape', and 'The Blitz'. Can you share with your families what we looked at in the other huts and what your favourite part of the day was?
