Raising attendance is our highest priority - if your child is in school every day, they will be able to learn all the things they need to know. Please keep helping us to help your child by bringing them to school every day. Thank you.

Joining the Library


We believe that stories and reading is one of the most important things to share and we wouldn't want anyone to miss out. Joining the library and borrowing books is completely free. Our closest library is on Narborough Road (although there are lots of libraries all over the city). There are no forms to fill in, just drop in with some proof of ID. Why not pop in after nursery? You can join for free and start borrowing today!

We will change the children's books every Thursday.
