Dairy Meadow Primary and Nursery School

Fearless Females Book List

At Dairy Meadow Primary School we believe that every child should be able to see themselves reflected within a book. All our staff are voracious readers who passionately believe that reading can not only unlock new vocabulary, sentence structure and ideas but transport you to a whole new world. 

Everyone who steps through the door of Dairy Meadow is encouraged to follow our 4E's of Enjoy, Embrace, Educate and Empower. Seeing that half of our school population (and nearly all of the staff!) are female, why is it that lots of the books on our shelves seem to have only male lead characters. The following book list is an example of some amazingly cool and talented ladies and young women who can easily challenge the Harry Potter's and Jeff Kinney's of this world! All of the books have been certified by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) and it's with thanks to them that we are allowed to publish this list.
