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

Bowmandale News



For their Christmas concert this year, Key Stage 1 presented Baubles! Baubles! is the story of the Nativity told by a group of children as baubles mysteriously appear on their school Christmas tree.

A lot of work went into the performance and everyone did their bit, from the angels and shepherds to Mr Potts and the children. The narrators' voices were loud and clear and the singing sounded beautiful. Well done to all the children and thank you to everyone who came along to watch. We can't wait till next year!
