A Romford primary school has won a generous book donation and £100 gift card voucher after signing an online reading pledge.

The Liberty Shopping Centre asked parents of children at local schools to sign an online reading pledge during the run up to World Book Day on Thursday, March 1.

Continuing The Liberty Shopping Centre’s #LoveLiteracy half term campaign, the school with the most sign-ups received a literacy bundle.

Parents of children from The Mawney Foundation School came out top with the most pledges.

Jonathan Poole, centre manager said: “We hope pupils and staff at The Mawney Foundation School enjoy getting lost in the world of magic and imagination with their new books.”

Caroline Jacyna, assistant head teacher at The Mawney Foundation School added: “I am sure pupils of all ages will love reading the books and we would like to thank parents for signing up to the pledge.”
