Our School Library


'the library is enchanting' (OFSTED June 2016) 

 Here at Sacred Heart School we not only strive to develop a love of reading with our children but we also try to instil a passion for everything literary.  The library plays a significant role in working to achieve this. The library is the heart of our school.

The school library offers children a huge variety of both fiction and non-fiction books to choose from, as wells as comics, newspapers and graphic novels. All of which are regularly updated with new stock. 

We use MLS, Junior Librarian computerised system.  A selection of children from year 6 are trained as junior librarians and help to run the library every lunchtime, Monday to Thursday.  Every pupil can borrow books from the library – Infants 1 book per week, Juniors 2 books (fiction and non-fiction) and return them after a week.
