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.

Sports Ambassadors

On Thursday 1st October Megan, Daisy, Callum and Joseph went to the pods for a day of training to be sports ambassadors. Our leader was Natasha. Throughout the morning we enjoyed lots of different activities. We had to set games up using instructions to play them in our teams, one of them was called cone shift. To play we had to put a mat at either side 75cm apart. On one of the mats there would be a pile of cones, the aim of the game is that you have to move the cones from one mat to the other mat. In the afternoon we played a game called domes and dishes. The aim of this game is you split into two teams one team would be dishes and the other would be domes. The domes turn the cone down and the dishes turn the cones up. Over all we had a brilliant time and would love to go again, hopefully we will be able to run some after school clubs with teachers or at dinnertime.
