Opening times

The school library is open: Monday-Thursday at 8:20 to 8:50 am for pupils and parents and at lunchtimes  12:20 to 12:50 pm. for pupils.

The library is supervised either by Mrs Wingfield or Mrs Grout who are available to offer assistance and advice when open.

Children are encouraged to borrow books to take home to read.

Reception and Year 1 pupils may borrow one book at a time and pupils in Years 2 to 6 may borrow an Accelerated Reader book and one other for their reading enjoyment.

The school library uses a computersied catalogue which helps us to keep track of  our books and how many are borrowed by each child.

Stepping Stones - Enjoy Reading!


Stepping stones is an activity run by West Croft to encourage and support children in their enjoyment of reading. At key points throughout their reading your child will be awarded badges and certificates as incentives, with a special badge given when they reach 100 books.
