Dairy Meadow Primary and Nursery School

Windrush 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. 

Considering many of our young people are of Black Caribbean heritage, it is entirely plausible that they have relatives that came to this country as part of the Windrush generation. These books are examples of the vital contribution these trailblazers have made to the vibrant country that we live in as well as an honest recount of the troubles faced. 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.
