Ofsted Report 2023
Bowness Primary School continues to be a ‘Good’ school, following the recent Ofsted inspection in July 2023. The school has worked closely with the Prestolee Multi Academy Trust since 2015, with the leaders of the trust working alongside the Head of School, leaders and staff to improve outcomes. Over the years, as the trust has grown, the Bowness team have worked relentlessly to become a contributor to the Trust, and the school is now successful in its approach to create the next generation of leaders within the trust. Staff at Bowness work together with all the schools to share resources, whether this is business management, developing teaching and learning or assessment models and are beginning to share those resources across the Trust and beyond. The Ofsted good judgement is an absolute credit to all staff at the school and within the Trust who have contributed to creating this environment and learning culture. The Ofsted report states…
“Bowness Primary School is a warm and welcoming school. Pupils told inspectors that they value being a member of the ‘Bowness family’. ''
“Children treat each other with kindness and respect.”
“Leaders have designed a suitably ambitious curriculum that begins in the early years.”
“Pupils benefit from a range of excursions throughout the year that enhance their learning and support their social and cultural development.”
Bowness is a small, family school and the team work hard working towards the trust vision of ‘Every child a reader, Every child a writer, Every child numerate, A school where every child has the chance to shine and is prepared for a future of possibilities’. This is central and vital to all decision making and is a key driver to school improvement at Bowness and throughout the trust. A huge thank you and well done to all staff involved!
