Welcome to the Bottisham Community Primary School website. Our aim is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment where children are able to achieve their fullest potential. Through our exciting and engaging curriculum, we strive for our children to become confident, creative and enthusiastic learners who have a curiosity about the world in which we live and a passion for knowledge. We expect our children to leave us with a strong self-esteem, resilience, high personal expectations and respect for themselves and others.
As a community primary school, we play an active role in the life of the village with close links to a range of groups who use our school facilities. We have a committed and thriving Parent Teacher Association (PTA) who make a fantastic contribution to the life of the school through their fundraising activities each year. Our school benefits from spacious grounds including excellent play areas, our own forest space and a wildlife area, providing the children with a wonderful opportunity to explore and investigate through their play. The popular after-school club, Time to Play, is also based on the school premises.
Our school is situated to the north-east of the university city of Cambridge, serving the villages of Bottisham, Lode and Stow-cum-Quy. We take children from the ages of 3 – 11, starting in our Nursery though to Year 6.
On this website, you will be able to find more information about our wonderful school which we are proud to share with you.
Bottisham Community Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all adults to share this commitment.
Wishing all our families a safe and enjoyable summer break. We look forward to welcoming the children back to school on 2nd September.
Congratulations to all our Y6 children on finishing primary school today! We know that you are going to flourish as you take this next step and we are so proud of the mature and delightful young people that you have become.
It's been a fantastic Science week here at BCPS - we'd like to say a huge thank you to all of the brilliant contributors who have helped to inspire the children (and adults!) by bringing science to life!
Have you seen our latest arrivals? 😍🐄 Our 4 Mini Moos have moo-ched in as part of Cows about Cambridge public art trail. Decorated by talented children at @StMarysSch, Thorndown Primary, Barrington C of E Primary & @BottishamPri - haven't they done a fabulous job! 🤩👏
There's great egg-citement in Oak and Ash Classes this week as the incubator is set up and ready to go! 🐣
We are really excited about this!
All prepped for ‘Art by Salad Dressing’ tomorrow @BottishamPri ‘s Science Week. White vinegar, veg oil and red food colouring to explore what happens when they are mixed, then marbling and wax resist painting (with a bit of help from my arty daughter) to exploit the properties.
