Centre of Good Practice for New Arrivals


As of March 2016, Bowling Park Primary School became a ‘Centre for Good Practice for New Arrivals’. As a result, we are now in the position to offer personalised school to school support on a variety of topics regarding the teaching of New to English children, this includes visits to our setting, planning and curriculum advice, workshops and work samples.

We have worked very hard to ensure that all pupils at our school, including those new to English and to the country, are happy and safe and make excellent progress. We are looking forward to sharing our experiences and providing support to other schools.

Please note that our sessions and support packages are offered free of charge to Bradford schools.

Recently, as part of our support package, we hosted around 30 PGCE students from York St John’s University. They visited our New to English phases, looked at work samples and gathered information and advice from the New to English team. The student had these kind words to say about their experience:
