We are very excited to be able to provide you with an online version of our junior school library catalogue/ This system allows students, staff and parents to view our school library catalogue online, and pupils are encouraged to use this to help with research, to write reviews about books they have read and search for new books that they may like to read.
The library catalogue, now searchable online, includes over 1000 books. You can access the system by clicking here.
The first time you access the system it may ask you to install Microsoft Silverlight; please allow this to be downloaded and installed on your computer as the system cannot run without it.
There is also an App called ‘iMLS’ available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android and Windows Phone 7. This App can be freely downloaded by going to your App provider and searching ‘iMLS’.
Having the library accessible in this way and having parents engaged with reading will help to support our commitment to improving our student’s literacy standards.
Your child will have received their login details for the system from their teacher. If you would like to know what these are so that you can track their borrowing history and perhaps help them to choose their next read, please speak to your child’s teacher.
The school is strongly committed to promoting reading for pleasure. Data from the 1970 British Cohort Study provides strong evidence for the link between children who read for pleasure and success in later life.
