 If your child does need to isolate, work will be set for them to complete (if they are well enough to do so).  Similarly, if we do need to close one of our bubbles, work will be set remotely.  Currently, this will be done via the school website class pages as during Lockdown.  Individual work can be printed off if you do not have the appropriate technology.

Welcome to bowling green primary school

I would like to warmly welcome you all to Bowling Green Primary School which is a village school at the very heart of the Stainland community in Halifax.  It has a real 'family feel' and many of our children have generations of relatives who have also attended.  

It is an absolute pleasure to work at Bowling Green with the fantastic children and staff.  We believe we have strong relationships with our parents who share our common goal of promoting well-rounded, happy individuals. Our children are always so welcoming and positive and their behaviour and manners are often commented upon by visitors from outside of the school.  Bowling Green prides itself on being a nurturing and inclusive school and we believe that in promoting a caring ethos mixed with an exciting and engaging curriculum is key to enabling children to succeed and meet their full potential.    We always encourage children to try their best and that nothing is impossible if you give it a go.  

Primary school is, in my opinion, the most important part of a child's education.  It lays the foundation for success in further years.  Enabling the children to learn in a supportive environment allows challenges to be made without them becoming overwhelming. Encouraging a climate of 'it's ok to make mistakes' is something we all feel incredibly strongly about and children can often be heard repeating this.

We do hope that this website gives you all the information which you need however, if you would like to visit our school or require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
