Welcome to LB Primary School


"Working together to love learning!"


Dear Parents,


Welcome to the website of Little Bowden Primary School.


Little Bowden is a school of approximately 400 children, both boys and girls, catering for children from the age of four to eleven years. The school building, built in 1907 and located on the edge of the local recreation ground, has been extended and developed, creating a pleasant working environment for both adults and children.


Our vision is to inspire creative, curious independent and resilient learners.


Our mission is to:

  • Empower our children to achieve academic excellence.
  • Build resilient and independent minds to flourish in an ever changing world.
  • Celebrate culture, community and diversity
  • 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.
