Bowness expects more
Notice for Parents
Bowness Primary School will change from a Local Authority maintained school to be part of Prestolee Multi Academy Trust. The DfE has granted this conversion which will be effective from 1st December 2015.
Welcome to Bowness Primary School
Bowness is a rapidly improving school that combines good pupil behaviour and pupil safety with rising standards and achievement. The school is investing significantly with resources and facilities to support and sustain this ongoing progression. Our recent Ofsted inspection has recognised recent progress with the following statements:
“Pupils feel safe, have positive attitudes to their work, enjoy coming to school and behave well. When asked to express their views, they find it very difficult to think of any improvements they would like to see”
“Parents and carers agree that the school is improving under the current leadership and these comments express their views: ‘The school is a better place to be now’; ‘My child likes coming to school now and is making better progress.”
“Current leaders are working effectively to improve the school. They keep a close eye on the school’s performance and are very clear about the direction the school must take to improve further. There is a relentless focus by senior leaders to improve pupils’ attendance and achievement and to improve the quality of teaching”
“No stone is left unturned to ensure that all pupils, including those most vulnerable are well cared for, feel safe and supported” - OFSTED October 2012
I am proud to lead Bowness toward our goal of becoming an outstanding school. Our parents and the wider community are stakeholders in this journey and we are grateful for all your support.
Mr M H Tonge - Exec Headteacher
