Learning Resources and Reading

Welcome to the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) section. We hope you will find all the information you need to support use of the LRC and all the services we provide.   In 2018 we received a SLS-UK School Library Award, for quality of provision across five broad areas. We also hold an Inclusive Minds certificate showing our commitment to ensure all children can find authentic representations of themselves in books, as well as seeing those who are different from them.

Use of the LRC

All year 7 students participate in an LRC induction during their first few weeks at Warlingham School. This enables them to visit the LRC and learn how to take advantage of the resources available. We also provide them with an LRC user guide, a link to which can be found on this page.

Students may use the LRC as a quiet space during break and lunchtimes should they wish to.

The LRC is also used to provide an afterschool Homework Club, supported by Teaching Assistants, details of this can be found in the LRC User Guide.

Library Management System

Eclipse.net is a web-based library management system which is accessed from the school’s website, so use is not confined just to in school. Our students are able to browse resources we hold on the system (although there is no substitute for actually handling the resources in the LRC), reserve books that are currently out on loan, review books they have read and create a ‘shopping list’ of future reads!  All this is achieved from an extremely user-friendly front screen. The students have commented on how user-friendly Eclipse is and have worked their way around the system with confidence.  However, we produced a brief user guide for students should they require some notes to support them, a link to which can be found on this page. The system can be accessed from the Student dropdown menu at the top of this screen, in The Student Room area. Usernames and passwords are notified to students when they start school, but reminders can be obtained by emailing l.ferguson@warlinghamschool.co.uk.

Should you have any queries or would like some support in selecting reading material, please feel free to contact the us by emailing l.ferguson@warlinghamschool.co.uk. We are also very happy to  provide support in person at a mutually convenient time.
