Welcome to the Library.
We are very proud of our library and the opportunities it gives the children to read and explore books. It is a light and airy space with colourful wall murals of fictional characters and is a great place to be. Each class comes to the library every
week. This gives all children the chance to borrow a book and just spend time in the library. We also have a large selection of magazines for the children to enjoy.
Comics and Graphic Novels are a great way to get children to read. They are always engaging, exciting and full of wonderful illustrations that capture children's imagination.
There is lots of information, competitions to win exclusive prizes and details of events on the national book tokens website. Accepted in thousands of bookshops and online, National Book Tokens are the perfect way to reward, encourage literacy and inspire a love of books. https://www.nationalbooktokens.com/ You could win some books for our library and some book tokens to treat yourself!
We always welcome comments and suggestions from parents so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have anything you would like to share with us about the library or even if you would like to visit the library and see what fantastic resources we have.
Our Pupil Librarians are very hard working and ensure that the library is looking neat and tidy at all times. It is a very responsible role and helps to develop their confidence and leadership skills. Pupil librarians help return books into the library system and also issue books to children. They also help with assemblies, book fairs and author visits. This term we have 8 new Pupil Librarians.
How many books can my child borrow?
Nursery - Year 4 can have no more than 1 library book at home.
Year 5 can have no more than 2 library books at home.
Year 6 can have no more than 3 library books at home.
What if I can't find a book that my child borrowed?
If a child has lost a book parents/carers will be asked to pay £5 towards the purchase of a replacement book. Each lost book has a charge of £5 so if you child lost 3 books that would be £15. There is also an option to replace the book/books with the same book/books which may be cheaper in some cases.
Regular overdue letters will be sent home with your children so you are aware of what they have borrowed.
Do children get fined for bringing books back late?
No! We do not fine children for bringing books back late. We appreciate that all children read at different speeds and we want children to enjoy their books without feeling rushed.
