Library News

This year we are trialing a new system to help with the retrieval of borrowed library resources. All parents / carers have recently received a letter outlining the changes, which are in line with the Robert Carre Trust becoming cashless. Our students are very good at returning their library books and textbooks on time, but inevitably some books do get forgotten and this directly impacts on our collections. The school library does not operate a fine system for overdue items as this can act as a barrier to successful and confident borrowing within an educational setting. However, for books that are lost, damaged beyond repair or long overdue (6 weeks or more without reasonable explanation) we will be placing a replacement charge on the Parentpay account. Alternatively, if the item remains unreturned parents may wish to replace it with a like for like copy. Students will receive both email and verbal reminders if they have items overdue, and I encourage any student to visit the library in person if they are unsure about any aspects of their library borrower account.
