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.

Young Voices 2018

Young Voices 2018

On the 18th of January just over 40 pupils from Bowmandale Primary School took part in the fantastic Young Voices choir with over 5000 other children. While we were there we also waved to one of our fellow schools in the area: Castledyke. We also had a good time rehearsing with the special guests, who were: Natalie Williams, Alfie Sheard and The Magnets.

At the real concert, we all had little lights and when the lights went down all you could see was the little lights shining and it looked like stars in the night sky. At the end of the concert, we were all exhausted from singing all the songs and doing the dance moves. We were also accompanied by some street dance people from Urban Strides who are an upbeat dance group and who perform almost every time at Young Voices since Bowmandale has taken part in the brilliant concert.

It was also a bit sad in the end because for some of us it was our last ever time going to Young Voices with Bowmandale. On the bus journey there it was quiet and on the way back it even louder than the first time. (People still had energy from the concert!) On the other hand, some people were trying to get to sleep on the way back.

All in all we all had a great time. The adults that came were: Mrs Vickers (school governor), Mrs Dunstan, Miss Wilkinson, Mrs Evison and Mrs Mason.
