Library

From Tuesday 17th September our school library will be open on Tuesday afternoons to school families from 15:15 to 16:15. It will be accessed via the gate from the front playground through the Nursery play area.

Each family can register for a ticket which will enable them to borrow up to three books each week. So everyone can benefit from the library, borrowed books can be kept for a maximum of two weeks and are to be returned on a Tuesday afternoon.

All children must be accompanied by a parent or carer when using the family card.
