What we can provide

  • LSE can loan resources to Home Educators across Gloucestershire, for children ranging from pre-school to lower KS3 (Year 7). 
  • Our resources are mainly books, including picture books, fiction and non-fiction, although we also have a small collection of non-fiction educational DVDs.
  • We don’t stock reading schemes, such as the Oxford Reading Tree, however our fiction titles can be used to support a range of reading levels.
  • Our non-fiction stock covers a range of subjects across the primary curriculum - the books are for topic support as opposed to ‘textbooks’.

  • We loan items per term for the three main school terms (i.e. Autumn, Spring, Summer).
