What to do if you have lost or damaged your book

  1. Speak to Mrs Lannaman-Williams as soon as you notice it is missing or damaged.
  2. There is a minimum charge of £5 for paperback books and £10 for hardback books to cover the replacement cost of the item. Payments must be made via your ParentPay.  Should the item be paid for and later returned or found in a good condition, payment will be refunded directly back to your Parent Pay account. 
  3. A replacement book may be accepted instead of the minimum charge at the librarians discretion ONLY.

Ways to help your child enjoy reading

  • Read with your child every day and ask questions about the book.
  • Check your child has an understanding of what they are reading e.g do they understand the meaning of words and are they able summarise what they have read?
  • Encourage your child to engage a variety of different text e.g fiction, non-fiction, newspapers, radio, audio stories and comics.

We often celebrate literary events where children have an opportunity to attend author, artists visits, themed class activities and educational workshops and as well as a wide range of creative activities and events.
