Beatrix Potter Primary School on Magdalen Road in Wandsworth is renowned for its warm community of 270 pupils. Lessons are built around the 5Es, ‘engage, explore, explain, elaborate and evaluate’ so reading and all that books bring is at the centre of its ethos hence the motivation for their recently opened beautiful library. It is a stand out feature of the school and staff are building the collection of books with their PTA so that there is a good range for everybody.
Miss Lindsay Doy, Library Co-ordinator at Finton House, was delighted to help with the organisation of the library from filing systems to labelling, posters to set up. Miss Lindsay attended the opening of the library on Thursday 13th July together with Miss India, who as Head of Development and Marketing looks to work with neighbouring Primary Schools and partner with them on collaborative projects.
