‘Poet, Paul Cookson, cut the ribbon for us at lunchtime on 16 March.

‘During the day, the children have all participated in some wonderful workshops and performed some hilarious poetry under the guidance of our special guest.

‘Paul is a great performer and we’ve learnt just how much fun poetry can be.


‘The new library is an incredible improvement on the old library space which was located in a section of the corridor.

‘We’ll be able to bring in groups of children for phonics, story-time and lots more learning. Reading is a vital part of our curriculum.

‘We know that reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income.’

Pictured with Paul are Sofia Abed, Hannah Andrews, Frances Draper, Ash Durgaprasad, Lucy Haworth, Alex Hemsley, Heidi Holodynsky, Ray Lui, Rose Morrow, Jonathan Nixon, Amy Sewart and Chloe Waite.
