Heathfield Welcomes New Books Thanks to the Foyle Foundation Grant

Following the successful grant application to the Foyle foundation earlier this year, Heathfield Primary School were delighted to receive a large collection of books, made possible by the £7500 received. This grant, awarded in May, has now brought a new range of literature to the school's library, enriching the educational experience for students and families. The Foyle Foundation is a renowned independent grant-making trust that supports UK charities, including their Foyle School Library Scheme.

This scheme prioritises state-funded primary schools, providing substantial support for the purchase of physical library and reading books. These new books mark a significant step in Heathfield Primary School's commitment to promoting reading and engaging families. We eagerly anticipate the positive impact these resources will have on the students' learning journey and cannot wait to see students visit a full and exciting library once again. Head of School, Yasmeen Malik, comments on the grant: It is truly heartening to hear about the excitement surrounding the new books in our school library.

Reading is an essential part of a child's education and personal growth. We believe in the power of books to open doors to new worlds and experiences. Receiving a grant from the Foyle Foundation has been a significant achievement. It is an acknowledgment of the value of literacy and education, and it highlights our commitment to providing quality, age-appropriate texts for our children. This support will undoubtedly make a positive impact on the children's learning and their overall development. Encouraging children to explore the diverse world of literature is a vital step in fostering a love for reading and learning. It's not just about gaining knowledge but also about nurturing imagination and empathy. We hope the new books bring joy and inspiration to the children in our school and that they embark on many exciting literary adventures.
