A little reminder…

Throughout the last eighteen months, there have been many changes that have affected school life. These changes have included: partial school closures; changes in government guidance; the cancellation of statutory assessments; rules about self-isolation; one way systems; and staggered school timings… to name but a few! In many ways, school has been different. The one thing that has remained consistent, however, is just how fantastic our pupils are.

Whilst all of these changes have been taking place, your children have continued to impress and amaze us with their efforts and achievements and there has been lots to celebrate. Pupils across the school have been working hard; excelling in their learning; being amazing friends; trying new things; overcoming barriers; taking risks; and establishing new skills and talents. Much of the time, this has happened quietly as we have not been able to recognise and loudly celebrate their achievements together, as we normally would, as a whole school.

So, I would like to provide a little reminder about, and take the opportunity to celebrate, our wonderful pupils and mention just a few of our Bowmansgreen superstars.

On the last day of term, we held a remote Leavers’ Assembly, to thank and congratulate our fantastic Year 6s for having led the way so brilliantly during this very challenging of school years. As is tradition, awards were ‘handed out’ – virtually, of course – to a number of pupils who had been voted for or nominated by their peers or staff members.

This year, the winners are:

It has not been an easy year to be a House Captain! Thank you House Captains, for being responsible, sensible role-models and a great support to the school’s leadership team and wider community. I hope that you all go on to lead the way in your secondary schools.

Harry took part in a 24 hour sponsored silence to raise money for Peace Hospice Care. Not only did he complete the silence, he raised an amazing £285 by doing so!


Oscar was so inspired by Harry’s fundraising efforts that he designed, made and sold bracelets, raising over £60 for Peace Hospice Care.


Isla has also been busy raising money for charity. She completed a 20k bike ride and raised a spectacular £800 for Save the Children!

Well done to our fundraising heroes!


Poppy, Anna, Sophia, Louisa, Amin and Valentino all took and passed their first music exams. More details about their musical achievements, to follow.

Ruby E-G and Ruby N both took grade 2 recorder; Lacey took grade 2 singing and Eliza took grade 1 piano.

Congratulations to all of our talented musicians!


During the last few days of term, we held an art exhibition to display and view all of the fantastic art work that pupils across the school had been busy creating last half-term. Enjoy!
