Terms of Use - for parents and buyers of books from our site

Our website terms of use are set out below. We are a commercial operation and our principal activity is providing the highest quality books for children. In the process we aim to provide schools and nurseries with free books to help more people enjoy reading. When parents buy through MySchoolBookClub, 20% of the total value (excl. postage and packaging) will be given to a charity in books or cash. We are not a book club in the traditional sense and as such there is no obligation to buy books on a regular basis. Neither do we send books to you on approval that you have not requested.

Terms of Use - for teachers, schools and education professionals

Our website terms of use are set out below. We are backed by leading authors who seek to help schools and teachers improve literacy and provide greater access to the very best books. By effectively 'rebating' 20% of every order (ecl. Postage and packaging), directly to individual schools, we hope to restock and reinvigorate often forgotten library resources and through our website explain why reading is important for children and parents alike. We do send regular updates to schools and nurseries, that you may choose to include in your communications with parents if you wish. We are fortunate to have unique access to publishers and will use these relationships to provide competition prizes and support for the teaching community that traditional e-commerce operations deem unimportant or unprofitable.
