Please read on for information on how to access books when you are unable to get to the library!
Regular reading at home has never been more important to support your child’s development.
Finding the right book is often key to turning a child into a reader – the book that connects with them, that makes them realise that reading can transport them, guide them, make them laugh, cry or simply entertain them, and some that might just make them realise that reading is fun.
Finding the right book takes time, to help choose why not look at the Books Trust website which gives recommended books for different age groups. Click here to go to the books trust page.
We hope that within these lists you’ll find a lot of ‘right’ books, you may find some ‘wrong’ books too but that’s all part of the fun!
Let’s help our children to love reading!

Access to books during the pandemic
Unfortunately with the way the world is at the moment children aren't able to access the library systems usually available to them.
Continuing to read is so important for children, both for their education and for their mental health (who doesn't want to escape to a far off more stress free world at the moment!)
We have compiled a few places to access books online, through laptops and other mobile devices, we will update these as and when find new ones for you.
Kirklees overdrive have recently set up an app named Libby, this can be downloaded to any mobile device and you can borrow e-books and audio books without having to go into the library!
If you don't have a library card signing up is free and you and your child has access to books without having to leave the house!
Audible offer a free 30 day trial, where you can listen to a great range of audio books.
If you have amazon prime you get two free downloads immediately.
Some lovely books available for younger children to read online and some games as well!
Huge thanks to all the people who have kindly donated books to the library. We are very grateful to everyone.
If your bookshelves are getting a bit full and you have out grown some of your books we would be delighted to give them a new home in the school library, these can be handed in to the school office.
We hope that students will soon be able to log into the library system at home and see which book they have out, check which books are in the library, write reviews on books they've read and give and receive recommendations on books.
