To access the reading cloud and order your favourite books into the library, click below:

Books are issued for two weeks at a time but can be returned earlier. If your child wishes to keep a book for longer than two weeks, please send it in to school and your child can place it in the library box with a post-it note so that it can be renewed.


You can check which books your child currently has on loan along with the return dates on Reading Cloud. Log-in details are in the front of your child's home-school diary. If a book has got lost, we ask for a £5 contribution towards replacing the book. Please speak to your child's class teacher.


Children should come to school in their PE kits on a Monday and Wednesday. Children should wear their colour T-shirt of the planet group they're in with blue shorts and trainers. Plain blue, black, or grey tracksuit bottoms or leggings and a similar sweatshirt (no logos please) should be worn as the weather becomes colder. If you prefer, your child can wear their school jumper or cardigan.
