Overdue Library Book Procedures

Children visit the school library every week.  If they do not return the book after 4 weeks the following procedures will apply: 

  • Class teachers will remind the child and speak to the parent at the end of the day.  If parents do not collect, a reminder will be written in the child’s communication book.

  • If the book is not returned, or a replacement book provided, in the following week, a reminder slip will be given to the class teacher to hand out to parents.

  • If the book is not returned, or a replacement book provided, in the following week, a £5 charge will be added to the child’s ParentMail account (please note the £5 is a flat fee however many of the books in our library are of greater value). 

  • If the book is not returned or the replacement fee paid within the following two weeks the family will be contacted by the headteacher.

*Please note parents are encouraged to contact the school at the earliest point in this process if there is a problem or they feel there has been an error.
