Thanks to the generous parents and carers signed up to the PTA Monthly Prize Draw, the PTA presented the school with a cheque for £2,000 at the recent Christmas Concert. This brings the total donated this year to the vital Library Project up to £4,000. Research by The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development found that reading for pleasure at the age of 15 is the most important indicator of the future success of a child – and improving literacy is one of the Head Teacher’s primary objectives this year. Already we are seeing the benefits of this investment in a renewed enthusiasm for reading amongst pupils -the school librarian reports an increase in the number of students visiting the library and borrowing the new books. A further £2,500 is needed to complete the transformation of the school library.

Thanks to the PTA’s generous donation, we are delighted that many new books have been added to the school library collection and are now available to borrow.
Thanks also to those pupils, teachers, parents and carers who offered suggestions for the new reading material.
