Head teacher Sam Land said: "The library has taken over a year to develop with the invaluable help from parents, volunteers, PTFA, staff and £4,000 from the Foyles Foundation.

"I would especially like to say a huge thanks to Mrs Knight, our Reading Recover teacher, who has been instrumental in the development of the library.

"Thanks to Mrs Knight's vision and dedication we now have a space that inspires all to excellence and instils a love of reading."

Thomas Docherty is an acclaimed author and illustrator of children's picture books including Little Boat, Big Scary Monster, and the Driftwood Ball.
