St Wilfrid's CE Primary School Library


At St Wilfrid’s we are incredibly lucky to have our own school library which is filled with a variety of high quality texts from a range of authors.  We feel that it is incredibly important that all children can see themselves in books, and strive to make sure that all children are represented in the books that we stock. We have a wealth of non-fiction texts as well as fiction to provide children with opportunities to read widely across the curriculum.

Each class has a timetabled time to visit the library each week to choose books to read at school or enjoy at home. Story time is often held in the library and children have opportunities to snuggle up with book.  

The weekly visit to the library is a highlight of the week and contributes to the love of the reading culture at St Wilfrid’s.

Mrs Ward, our resident librarian is a font of book knowledge and along with her library monitors helps to run and administer the library effectively. It has attractive displays of books and resources which are rotated throughout the year dependent on topics and current affairs. 

Mrs Ward also offers excellent support to our teachers to ensure that the classroom libraries are stocked with appropriate books for their topics and that reading for pleasure books are fresh and rotated through the year.
