Many factors impact demand for property, but the standard of local schools is a crucial factor. We know buyers want to find out about local schools, and we think Enfield has some tremendous schools. This helps to ensure Enfield homes are in high demand.

This is why we are pleased to see a few local primary schools have benefited from a scheme aimed at helping children read.

Local schools receive significant help

Hazelbury Primary School, Keys Meadow Primary School, and Churchfield Primary School have seen upgrades happen in the school. These spaces allow youngsters to enjoy reading in a dedicated space at the school.

Support comes from funding by Chase, the digital bank, with a total of £1m added to the scheme. The initiative is also backed by the National Literacy Trust, and Penguin, the renowned publisher. The scheme aims to help 35,000 children.

The work at the schools includes:

  • New furniture for the spaces
  • Book shelves
  • E-readers
  • Audio books
  • 400 new books

This is a lot of work, and hopefully it will help children feel more settled at school.

What do the experts say?

Mel Bowman, the deputy head teacher at Hazelbury Primary School, spoke with the Enfield Independent, saying; “We’re thrilled to have the support of Chase to not only encourage a love of reading among the children at Hazelbury, but also equip parents and guardians with how they can support their children at home. Our new library provides a special space for the children to let their imaginations run wild and leave a lasting legacy that will have a real impact on their lives for years to come.”

Deborah Keay, is the chief marketing officer of Chase in the UK, and she spoke with the Enfield Independent, saying; “It’s fantastic to see our school library transformations taking shape and for children in the Enfield schools to now be actively using them. These three schools are part of our wider mission to transform 150 libraries across the UK to support children’s literacy across the nation. Developing early stage reading skills and discovering a passion for reading can shape a child’s life, unlocking their potential, and helping improve their future prospects.”

Anything which helps children at school is great, for them, their future, and for parents. We are delighted to see Enfield schools receive this sort of support.
