SLS @ Home is available to support pupils with reading for pleasure resources, in cases where children have minimal access to books at home. SLS staff will select additional titles to be delivered to the school for the designated child. Schools will then be responsible for arranging the books to reach the pupil. 

6 weeks before the start of a school holiday the linked form below will become live for school staff, parents, and carers to request a selection of books for their pupils. SLS staff will then select titles that will be delivered to the school for the designated child to borrow by the last week of term. 

Books loaned out to schools by SLS through the SLS @ Home scheme will not count under the school’s subscription allocation. We ask that schools treat the resources like any SLS stock and aim to return the stock back to their SLS Centre approximately 2 weeks after school resumes.

There is no limit to the number of pupils a school can nominate; however, please carefully consider only nominating the children who need this service.

The request form for the Easter Holidays will be available Monday 20 February.
