The Reading Retreat

In our quest to get all children reading, we are planning to create an outdoor library space on the Junior Site having applied for and received grants from the Foyle Foundation and the Big Lottery Fund. The aim of the project is to enhance children’s reading enjoyment and engagement and to provide opportunities to read and enjoy books at break and lunchtimes.

We are committed to providing children with a wide range of reading experiences and to promote reading for pleasure, something we strongly believe raises aspirations and provides opportunities for the future.

Currently, with the support of the PTA, we are working with a local architect who is designing our space. See below for her initial drawing of what the library space may look like.
