Our Libraries

At Claycots we are very proud of our Libraries. We have five beautiful libraries over two campuses; all pupils and staff are encouraged to borrow books to support the school in raising achievement and become lifelong readers.

The Reading Cloud

All pupils are members of The Reading Cloud. This is an online system that gives pupils, parents and staff access to our school database at school and from home. This system gives parents the opportunity to choose books together and monitor progress as well as seeing what books their child has out and when they are due back. The Reading Cloud can also be used for activities and to follow reading trends and catch up with the latest authors.

If your child needs help with their login, please get them to see one of our school librarians, who will be happy to help!

Library Reading Challenge

This year, we launched the fantastic Claycots Library Reading Challenge! We want all pupils to have a diet of high-quality books to read, from Classics to the latest fiction. We have selected a number of books for each year group to complete throughout the year. Pupils can record their reading on their stamp card and collect stamps from the librarian. All pupils who complete the challenge will be invited to a very special Hot Chocolate Story Party! (Stamp card sample- attached + picture of hot chocolate)
