Film Club

FilmMakers club has just completed another successful term.  It has been an amazing 10 weeks. The children’s behaviour was outstanding once again. The children all embraced the club with 100% commitment. It was a pleasure to work with them. The children worked on The 5 Realm & all made their very own advertisements plus Christmas Music videos. The children embraced their very own roles but also supported each other as a group. The children worked with a camera and green screens to allow for the effects in the final film. The end of the 10 weeks saw all children receive a certificate of achievement with also 4 Special Awards. These go to:


All films have now been edited and emailed to the parents of the children of the club. If for any reason you have not received your film, please contact me. The Spring term club commenced on Tuesday 7th January 2020 and has now sold out.  I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year.

If you have any queries about the club, please contact me on .

What a week!

Last Tuesday and Wednesday, an Ofsted inspection was carried out at Bowmansgreen. It had been three and a half years since Ofsted last visited the school and although the prospect of an inspection has never filled me with delight… I welcomed the opportunity to show off the journey that the school has been on since 2016 and the changes and progress that we have made.

The report for parents will take roughly a month to publish and until then, staff and governors are not permitted to discuss the outcome in terms of judgements or specific details. I can, however, confirm that we are pleased with the feedback and consider the inspection to have been a positive experience.

The experience of the two day inspection highlighted what a caring, supportive school community we are at Bowmansgreen and how well we all work together to support our fantastic pupils. I remain incredibly proud of the school and feel very well supported by parents, staff and governors. I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and commitment,  not just over the last few days but since I joined this very special school community. Bowmansgreen is a great place to work and learn and I am excited about what we can all achieve together.

There was, of course, lots of ‘business as usual’ last week….

… including, Anti-Bullying Week. We kicked off the week with theatre shows for all pupils. The Power of One Anti-Bullying Show reminded pupils about what bullying is and is not and reinforced our school values of being kind, safe and respectful. The theme for this year’s campaign is ‘Change Starts With Us’ which focuses on what part we all play in preventing bullying and taking responsibility for our own actions towards each other.

The photographers were back in on Thursday, in response to the feedback from parents about the quality of the most recent photos. We hope that the new photos give parents more choice and better quality to choose from.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
