At Bovington we commissioned an artist to work with all of our children to make a large stained glass window that we intend to mount in one of our stairwells. Mrs Muraro took a lead with this project and during Purbeck Arts Week we entered our window into this category.
In November 2016 we were awarded the Primary Quality Mark for our commitment to the ten elements of the Basic Skills Quality Mark.
Below is a letter from our Chair of Governors upon the news that we had achieved the threshold for the award.
Dear Mr Winthorpe,
On behalf of all the Governors it gives me great pleasure to congratulate Bovington Primary School on receiving your first Primary Quality Mark for Basic Skills.
I recall in the not too distant part the middle leadership team sharing the syllabus with us at a FGB meeting, and having since revisited the criteria it is clear that this is a significant achievement in a short period of time. This is a great achievement for the school and is a testament to that hard work and dedication of your middle leaders.
A special congratulations and thanks the middle leadership team for their time, effort and commitment that has led to this award.
It is clear that this positive drive for improvement within the school will continue to equip pupils for success now and in the future.

Healthy and active every day: We continue our commitment to being a Healthy and Active school with sport and activity being part of daily life at the school. The Olympics in London were a big springboard for the school and this has been sustained in the intervening four years.
We have worked for and achieved a Youth Sports Trust silver quality mark.
