Silverdale has a well-stocked Library for all students and staff to use. 

Students can log onto their library account via the Reading Cloud which is accessible from the school MLE network on any computer. Students' Reading Cloud login details are exactly the same as their Silverdale network username (eg 21CSenior) and the same password.

You can use the Reading Cloud to keep track of your loans, browse all the books, get inspiration from Reading Lists on particular topics and reserve books.

Books may be borrowed for 2 weeks and if you want to renew your book you can do so  by speaking to Mrs Senior, the library assistant. 

Please return books by posting them into the Book Returns box situated outside the Library

Stationery Shop - students can buy pens, pencils, rubbers and rulers in the Library

6th formers may use the Library for quiet study at any time.

All students in Y7 have a fortnightly English lesson in the Library with their English teacher and Mrs Senior, the Library Assistant. This lesson focuses on finding something to read that suits you, developing the habit of reading for pleasure and relaxation, learning how to use a library and becoming a more confident reader. 

From Y8, pupils can volunteer as Pupil Librarians. This is good fun and promotes responsibility, team work, commitment and organisation – and earns achievement points!

Please visit the Reading for Pleasure section on our Extra-Curricular activities page for reading ideas and have a look on these Padlets, online virtual “bulletin” boards, where students and teachers can collaborate, reflect, share links and pictures, in a secure location.  

Padlet for Y7, 8 and 9

Padlet for KS4 and Sixth Form

Sheffield Libraries have a huge range of ebooks, audio books and magazines free to all library users. These can be downloaded onto most mobile tablets, e-readers, PCs and other devices.
