Northgate's Library Renovation! 


Reading for pleasure has been a sanctuary for many throughout the lockdown. Almost two thirds of children say that reading helped them feel better and half say that it has encouraged them to dream about the future. As such, we are planning to renovate our libraries to make them the calming, comforting and inspiring spaces they have the potential to be, benefiting the children of our community now and for generations to come.


But this is no small feat! To achieve this goal, we are looking for donors and sponsors to help us raise the £20,000 required. If you know of a charity, business or other organisation who may be interested in supporting a charitable cause, please encourage them to reach out to us at Our 4 most generous sponsors will be honoured with a recognition plaque in pride of place in the library of their choice, and be provided with advertising space free of charge in our school magazine.


Of course, all donations would be greatly appreciated, and anything you or anybody you know may be able to contribute can be sent to us via our GoFundMe page available at

Dr Dunn's Book Surgery


Welcome to this new area of the website where you can discover books that your children will love 😊 

There are so many books in bookshops, in libraries and online, it can make choosing the right book for your child very confusing. I would like to help by sharing with you the books the children love reading when they visit the school library. 


My first recommendation is a whole collection of books by Pamela Butchart.

She has written two different series of very funny books which are both very

popular in our school.  



The first is a collection of books called ‘Wigglesbottom Primary’, which are slightly shorter, easier reads with colour illustrations, that are split up into short stories and are perfect for readers who may prefer something quick to read.  



The second series is also set in a Primary School and follows the adventures of Izzy and her friends in slightly longer books, which are very funny and fast-paced. Books in the series include: ‘My Headteacher is Vampire Rat’ and ‘The Spy Who Loved School Dinners’.
