Strengths and awards

On this page you will find more information relating to awards that the school has met the threshold for and how these are sustained and continue to impact across the school.

Tony Viney Award for Outstanding Creativity from a Primary School.

May 2017

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.

We won!!

Primary Quality Mark for Basic Skills  

November 2016

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.

Chair of Governors (Bovington Primary School)

We are proud to be a Right's Respecting School and the teaching of rights and responsibilities underpins much of the PSHE work and the behaviour framework and shared rules for the school.
We pride ourself on the quality of our singing and singing is taught to all children each week. When we have the opportunity we contribute our choir's voice and songs to local events. Last year children sang at the Tank Museum Christmas Fayre.

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.
