Welcome to Newfold Libraries 



"Both the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 libraries at Newfold Community Primary School provide pupils with a well-resourced, stimulating and informative learning area. These resources play an important role in representing and celebrating linguistic and cultural diversity, whilst also nurturing the personal development of pupils as individuals."


Key Stage 2 Library

Key Stage 1 Library

 Key Stage 2 Library


Each class is allocated a time throughout the week to use the libraries. Whether that is just to independently change their own books using the electronic scanning system, or to access the array of fiction and non-fiction books to complete some research. 



Topic-Specific Knowledge Books


To further enhance our topic based provision and to support electronic research using the internet, we have created topic specific boxes that can be taken into classrooms. These provide children with a variety of texts to support their learning and allow them to experience a range of research techniques.  








Community Library


Situated in the Key Stage 2 play ground, we have a Community Library that is available for all our families to use.

Come and have a look at the large collection of used books and take one home. All we ask, is that you replace it with one you no longer need. 

We have had some amazing feedback from its users!
