Welcome to Bowes Hutchinson’s Primary School

Welcome to Bowes Hutchinson’s School; we are  a small and friendly village school offering our children a highly creative and innovative education. We match high expectations in learning and teaching with fun, exciting and inspirational experiences to engage our pupils.

We have small class sizes enabling personalised learning for children, whatever their needs and abilities, encouraging all children to build upon their talents and develop their skills.

We encourage parents to build a partnership with school and we believe that working together, we can prepare children to become confident, lifelong learners, thus equipping them to succeed in 21st century life.

As a Church School, we have close links with St. Giles’ Church in Bowes and the church community and Christian values underpin our ethos.

Please explore our website and have a look at the excellent facilities we have on offer; if you would like to come and visit, contact us; you will be made more than welcome by myself and the staff.

Kind regards,

Mrs Matthewman and the Bowes Hutchinson’s team.click200

pupil_premiumPupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and the children of armed services personnel.

The school has a very small proportion of children who are eligible for pupil premium. Classes throughout the school are exceptionally small and the adult : child ratio is high.

 

sports-reliefSports Premium

The government has provided a sports premium from 2013. The funding formula for schools is based on the number of primary children on roll. It is used to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sports provision, and increase participation in PE and sport. The government’s Sports Premium is to be extended until at least 2020, partially funded for by the introduction of the “sugar-tax”, and linked to the Government’s Childhood Obesity Plan.
The funding is ring fenced in school to be spent solely on school sport and P.E. This year (2017/18) we will receive £16,450 – double last year.
The Sports Premium is provided to ensure impact against the following objective:
To achieve self sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.

The focus of spending must ensure that all pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Schools are held accountable by Ofsted regarding the spending of this grant and Ofsted will report on how we spend our Sport Premium funding.
