Welcome to Bowling Park Primary School.

We believe that we are a unique school. We are a 3 form entry primary, with just under 700 pupils, situated on 2 sites that are approximately one mile apart! We have a fantastically varied school population who come from many different backgrounds, cultures and faiths. We are very proud of this and constantly strive to celebrate and develop our school as a happy, nurturing and respectful place for children to learn.

Before I was appointed as Principal in September 2008, our two sites were totally separate schools and were both very different to how they are today. Many visitors comment on our special ethos, noting how the school feels full of energy and joy. Over the last few years, we have worked relentlessly and have overcome many challenges to ensure that children and staff feel valued, part of school and make at least good progress. Our team is dedicated, hard-working and caring, and children feel confident to try new things in a happy and safe environment.

We strongly believe that children come to school to help prepare them for adult life. This is why our vision for school is that children become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. This is achieved by encouraging children to ‘Go the Extra Mile’. Children at Bowling Park understand that school helps them to take positive steps towards their futures, and improves their life chances.

Our website is jam-packed with lots of information about our school, so please feel free to look around. There are many examples of happy children enjoying the challenge and excitement of learning. Each class has their own blog page, and there are also pages dedicated to literacy, maths and science. Further information about our school curriculum, key policies, Ofsted report and Ks1 & Ks2 results can also be found on the website. All the information contained on our website is also available in paper form at the office, just visit our Contact us page for details on how to get in touch.

Thank you for investing the time to look at our school.
