Adderley Primary School’s library is central to children’s learning and enriches their knowledge on a vast range of subjects, relating to both their curriculum, and their hobbies. Children who speak English as an additional language are heavily supported by a wide range of books in various languages including Arabic, Urdu, Pushto, Farsi, Dutch, Romanian and many more. The School Library strives to ensure that children are effective users of ideas and information. We aim for our children to become independent library users, knowledgeable users of information, and life-long learners.

The School Library provides materials that promote the love of reading and support the curriculum of the school. The library provides printed, non-printed, and electronic resources for students and staff. Children utilise library resources to complete assignments and homework, explore ideas, and to select from a wide variety of recreational reading on many topics. We have invested in many books catering for reluctant readers, gifted and able readers, and readers with specific educational needs.

Children have a weekly timetabled library session. During their library session, they can borrow up to 2 books, reserve books online, and listen to a range of stories which helps improve their engagement and listening skills.

The library is kept up-to-date with the latest fiction and non-fiction books in many different formats. We pride ourselves on providing innovative and engaging texts so that even the most reluctant reader can find pleasure in learning. We have comics, graphic novels, magazines and even wordless books so everybody at Adderley can find a book suitable for them.

The library also offers other enriching activities, and promotes the love of reading through book fairs, World Book Day, and small workshops including storytelling, book club, and after school reading clubs for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Pupils also have the chance to apply for the position of Library Pupil Leader which gives them a chance to learn the ins and outs of being a librarian! They learn new valuable life skills such as respecting books, helping others, book care, alphabetising, organisation and how to keep the library tidy.
