Y7 Reading Book – Parental Guidance

Dear Parents and Guardians

Guidance concerning age-appropriate literature and controversial subject matter.

Our Learning Resource Centre has recently purchased some new and exciting books for students to borrow. We would like to draw to your attention that some of these books contain topics relating to mental health, race, gender, religion and bullying. Some titles contain swearing.

When a student chooses a book from our LRC we do our best to advise them on the suitability of their choices. We endeavour to highlight any controversial content by means of a conversation at check-out; however, as we aim to cultivate a love of reading, ultimately the choice of book remains with the student. If you have concerns relating to your child’s book choice, we would be grateful if you could please begin with a conversation with your child about choosing a different genre and pointing them in the direction of the LRC at school for further help with their selection.

Yours Faithfully
