North Crescent Primary School

‘Guiding explorers of the future’

Are you looking for a school place? Please see our Admissions tab under Key Information. We are always happy to show prospective pupils and their families around our school. Tours are always available.



At North Crescent we promote a love of reading.

It is the most important skill to learn and

crucial in every school subject and throughout life.

We read every day at school, but we also want the children to read regularly at home. 


Reading should be a relaxed and enjoyable time for you both therefore offer praise and encouragement for all your child's efforts. Talk about the book together to further your child's understanding of the text and its key features.

Library Winter reading Challenge 2020

5th December 2020 – 27th February 2021

Visit your local library and collect one of their exclusive Giant Bookmarks, which will be stamped with one of their special woodland creature stamps for each book your child reads. The aim is to read 6 books over the winter period and receive a large golden star to complete the challenge.

This year’s theme is the Animals of Snowy Wood where Connie the fox and her friends will help Fraser the squirrel to get a good night's sleep. Please take part and fall in love with reading this Winter.

Watch the beginning of Fraser's story in the video clip below . The library will  be telling more of Fraser's story every week via their social media platform so click on the link to find out what the animals of Snowy Wood get up to and if Fraser can finally get a good night’s sleep.

New Electronic Reading Logs

In Google Classroom your child has been set up with an electronic reading log which replaces the Partnership books which we used to record your child's reading and number of reads.  If they have Golden Tickets these can be seen in these new reading logs. Please record your child's reading on these logs. (Please do not 'submit' or 'turn in' these documents they are live and can be viewed and edited by you and the school). 

An example is shown below.

Watch the Electronic Reading log tutorial to see how this reading log can record all the books that you read.
