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.

This week Year 1 children visited the Streetlife Museum in Hull. This trip helped the children learn about travel and transport which is currently their termly topic. They travelled back in time and experienced different modes of transport from over 200 years ago! Whilst we were there several of the museum staff commented on how super our pupils behaviour was and how well they participated in all of their activities. We are really proud of all the children and thankful to the parents that gave up their free time to support the trip.
