Mission Statement

Working together to love learning



We are working together to inspire creative, curious independent and resilient learners.




  •  To empower our children to achieve academic excellence.

  •  To build resilient minds to flourish in an ever changing world.

  •  To celebrate culture and community

  •  To nurture teaching excellence by valuing self-reflection and professional development.




At Little Bowden Primary School, in partnership with parents, the children are the centre of everything we do. We provide a safe and secure environment which encourages a lifelong love of learning through a broad and balanced curriculum. We are passionate about creating happy and confident children who will become caring global citizens. We support children to adopt a healthy, active lifestyle and to feel environmentally responsible. We motivate children to be effective communicators, to develop positive relationships and to have confidence to challenge their own and others’ thinking.

We achieve this by providing:-


  •  A mastery approach to Maths & English

  •  A creative and rich curriculum through theme-based learning

  •  A range of sporting opportunities and experiences for children of all abilities

  •  A thriving orchestra and choir

  •  Scientific excellence supported by the University of Leicester and The Ogden Trust

  •  Pastoral care through an Access to Learning team with specialised teachers

  •  A Mandarin curriculum supported by the Confucius Institute at De Montfort University


All aspects of school life are underpinned by our core values:-
