The school no longer keeps a gifted and talented register as with the advent of the new curriculum it follows a mastery approach

Diversity is reflected in collective worship themes and school displays. Collective worship is led by school staff from a range of traditions, members of the Anglican church a local Baptist church member and other visitors including those of faith and those of no faith. Diversity is reflected in school displays as evidenced by a Global Art project displaying work sent by children in Canada and China.

All pupils are given opportunities to make a positive contribution to the life of the school. For example, all Year 6 children were involved in the Y6 production. Children across the school appear in the Great Bowden stars, choir, sporting events and all have the opportunity to be involved in the student council
