This week, you should have received your data collection sheet from the office. These sheets include all the information we have about your child, from medical details to their address. It is of vital importance that we have the correct information, so please check these sheets carefully and return them to us with any changes. Thank you.
Welcome to the 21st Century…..Bowling Park Primary now has an app! You can download the app from the app/play store on your apple or android smart phone.
The app is really useful because it means you can stay up-to-date with information and news. You can also receive and send texts messages to school for free – making communication much easier.
Another added bonus is the ability to pay for dinner money on the app, through a service called ‘Parent Pay’. You will receive an activation letter next week (Wed 14th September) to allow you to sign up to this service.
Here is a flyer all about the app, including instructions on how to download it. If you need any more help, we’re holding app help sessions on Thurs 15th Sep at 9.00am and 2.30pm at NCS, and Friday 16th September at 9.00am and 2.30pm at US.

Last year, we were awarded the Bronze Sports Mark Award in recognition of our continued commitment to develop sports and physical education at Bowling Park. Well done everyone, what a fantastic achievement!
We hope you’ve had a fantastic summer holiday. School will re-open tomorrow (Tuesday 6th September). We can’t wait to see you all :-).
You might notice that there is scaffolding around our New Cross Street site. This is due to a roof replacement, and will continue for at least the next few weeks. Every possible measure is being taken to ensure continued safety around school during this essential work.
Have a fantastic summer holiday everyone! Remember Mr Herrington’s advice – have fun but stay safe, enjoy at least one good book, and don’t forget to come back to school on Tuesday 6th September, 8.45am
Well done to the KS2 band, who put on a brilliant performance in assembly this morning.
