Spark! Book Awards

Bedelsford School is excited to be taking part in the Kingston and Richmond Spark! Book Awards. The Spark! book awards are new this year and are being supported by AfC and schools across Kingston and Richmond. We will be involved in sharing shortlisted books from across three age categories and voting on our favourites. All children in school and learning at home will be encouraged to take part in reading and engaging with the stories. Jessica Webb, our English subject co-ordinator, is a panel member for the 4-7 Picture Books Shortlisting and will be sharing updates with us in due course.

Make sure you check back here for more updates and to follow the Spark! Book Awards for their 12 Days of Christmas campaign! Twitter: @sparkbookaward


Spark! Kingston and Richmond Children’s Book Awards – Home

Message from Jennifer Bell “Spark! The Kingston and Richmond Book Awards is an exciting initiative that I’ve no doubt will encourage a love of reading for pleasure amongst students, parents and teachers across both boroughs.

The school is truly ‘outstanding’ indeed and we don’t mean just in the sense of how Ofsted have classified it.
