A primary school in Bradwell has raised over £4,000 to revitalise its reading curriculum.

Throughout the year, the parent teacher association for Homefield CE VC Primary Academy has organised fetes and fundraising events to relaunch the school's reading programme.

After surpassing the £4,000 milestone, the school was able to carry out a full library audit, revamping the reading space and updating the titles on offer with the help of Norwich bookshop, Bookbugs and Dragontales.

The new school library was officially opened by children's non-fiction author Louise Gooding in a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Ms Gooding then held a whole school assembly where she shared a book with the school and her thoughts on the magic of reading.

The author also donated signed copies of her books to the new library for pupils to use.

The library is now open to classes, school book clubs and family reading sessions.

Earlier in October, it was announced that Homefield could be relocated due to growing demand for primary school provision in Bradwell. The proposal has come in response to an increasing population, with an expected 1,000 more homes being built in the area.
