Bowness Primary School

Bowness Community Primary School joined Prestolee Multi-Academy Trust in December 2015. 

Bowness is a rapidly improving school that combines good pupil behaviour and pupil safety with rising standards and achievement. 

The staff from Prestolee work closely with the staff of Bowness.  We share staff meetings, resources and planning.  Joint practice development takes place between the two schools regularly with staff supporting each other at all levels.

Be it business management, leadership, developing teaching or assessment models the two schools are starting to align their practice.  Similar systems, events and approaches have grown across the two schools.
