Learn more about the request for resources service

  • Please do not email forms as an attachment.
  • Resources ordered for the Spring Term will be on loan to you until 5th April 2019
  • If you are also asking for your old resources to be collected, please have them ready in the designated pick-up point in your school as our driver will not have time to collect crates from classrooms.
  •  Do not put completed forms in crates being returned to the library.
Hints for completing your form
  • We will contact you via email if there are any queries about your request. Please use an email address that you regularly check – we do not share your email with any other organisations.
  • Please be as specific as possible with topics. If a topic has a title that could be misinterpreted, or for topics like ‘Animals including humans’ that have specific requirements, please list which subjects are covered by that topic.
  • Some topics (such as IPC topics) cover many subject areas (history, science, art, etc). If you are only focusing on certain subjects within the topic, please let us know so that we do not send irrelevant books.
  • You can list specific titles, but you do not have to send ISBNs. If you request a title that we do not have we will either purchase it or send a suitable alternative.
  • If you request an item(s) that it is not possible for us to stock then we will let you know in a letter enclosed in your crate or by email.
  • Alternatively, you may download a Request for Resources form (.doc) to bring to the library.
For staff completing request forms for other teachers

If you are requesting resources that will be used by another teacher, please use this teacher’s name on the request form. If you are making a request for resources to be used across a whole year group, let us know the names of all of the class teachers for this year group so that we can send an appropriate number of resources.

There have been a number of cases of multiple forms being sent to us from different subject leaders on behalf of the same teachers. As these requests were received several days or weeks apart our librarians selected and delivered full allocations of resources for the first request forms. We were then unable to send any more items for the further topics that were subsequently requested by different subject leaders.

Please send one request form per teacher detailing all resources/ topics that are required for that term.

If further requests are recieved after items have been dispatched, the library service will:

  • Compile the request (only if sufficient space is available on the ticket)
  • Contact the school and ask that either resources are returned to us to make space on the ticket OR that another teacher is nominated to borrow the resources.

Thank you.

Request form

Resources will be delivered within 7 working days of receipt/ the start of the new term.

Have you already sent us a request form this term?
  • Please indicate whether this request should replace the first form (your topics have changed) OR that this is for additional topics.
  • If we have already compiled and delivered your first request and you no longer require these items, we will need this to be returned to us before more resources can be sent.
  • If we have already compiled and delivered your first request and  and you require additional topics, we will send these provided there is space on your ticket. Alternatively we’ll put the second request on hold and contact you to discuss options.
