World Book Day 2019

As part of our drive to maintain, promote and engage pupil interest in reading, we are taking part in World Book Day.


At Brailsford, we will be celebrating World Book Day on Friday 8th March and we would like to invite you to join us in helping your child to make the most of this special occasion.


On this day, we would like to invite your children to come to school dressed as a character from their favourite book and can bring their favourite book along with them to share with their friends - Costumes can be as simple or elaborate as you like!


World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children. To help get them started on their reading journey, every child receives a £1 World Book Token that can either be exchanged for one of TEN special £1 World Book Day books or used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more.


You can join us by building your child’s enthusiasm for books well beyond World Book Day by sharing books with them daily and joining your local library. For more information about World Book Day and ideas on sharing books at home, visit
