Learning Resource Centre
We realise how important reading is for all our children. Reading with your child helps build their vocabulary, language and literacy skills, while improving concentration, curiosity and memory. We want all our children to love books and aim to instil in them the habit of regular reading.
Our well-stocked LRC offers every pupil free access to a huge range of fiction and non-fiction books that they can borrow, or renew their current loan, on a weekly basis. All our pupils are given the opportunity to visit the LRC with their class once a week and during their lunchtime break.
Every Tuesday between 3.00pm and 4.00pm children are welcome to come to the LRC with their parent or carer to browse and borrow some books.
We hold a Book Fair twice yearly in school where children and parents can purchase a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books at reasonable prices. These are usually held in November and March.
