Shade Primary School

Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day


Reading is a key part of education.  We want Shade children to love books in general and to have a passion for stories, words and pictures.  As part of our commitment to children's love of reading we have re-opened our school library.  We  hold "Stay and Read" sessions from time to time for parents and Nursery children.  Dr Ovenden has the kettle on every Monday and Thursday morning (9.05 - 9.25).  Why not pop in with your child and explore what our library has to offer?


School library

Our new school library is a lovely place to be!  In a time when many schools have closed their libraries, we are really proud to have re-instated ours.  It was opened at the end of last school year by author Katherine Woodfine and actress Claire Benedict.  Alison from Calderdale School Libraries Service was also a guest.  Everyone agrees we're very lucky to have such a special place to explore books of all sorts.
Thanks must go to Mr Clarkson who dreamed up the design for us.
