About us

LCP - who are we?

A friendly bunch of people who publish creative, engaging, and above all time-saving, teaching resources and data management services for schools and teachers.

We pride ourselves on our customer service at LCP. If we can help you with anything at all please call us on 01926 886 914.

When you ring us between 9-5 Monday to Friday, we try to make sure that you always speak to a real person not a computerised message. (Outside of those times you may get a machine - sorry but we have to go home sometimes!)

Now for the more detailed bit...
LCP is the trading name of Language Centre Publications Limited, which was started in 1993. From small beginnings, the company has grown and now has a warehouse and distribution centre in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, with a Sales and Marketing office in Wimborne Minster, Dorset.

As our name suggests, we were originally a publishing house specialising in Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) for Primary and Secondary schools. The latest addition to our MFL Portfolio is LinguaNova, an online subscription service offering a full scheme of work with detailed lesson plans and engaging activites for introducing languages at KS2. 

We have diversified into other areas of the school curriculum, especially within the primary school sector and now provide:

1. Teaching Resources

Our teaching resources division has expanded considerably and produces primary school resources for teaching  Art and Design, ICT and Design & Technology, Geography, History, Music, Mathematics, MFL, Literacy & Phonics, Physical EducationPSHE & Citizenship, Religious Education and Science. In addition to this we have a range of cross-curricular resources, including materials for Learning Outside the Classroom and Special Educational Needs.  Our popular Teaching Resource files are a classroom essential, from EYFS and Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 and are updated for the 2014 Curriculum.

Downloads are also available from Karascope, our service which allows teachers and schools to buy and try bite-sized chunks of LCP teaching and school management resources. Most of the resources you  find on this website can also be found on Karascope. The main benefit of Karascope is that you can buy and download bite-sized LCP teaching and school management resources immediately. No waiting for your resources to arrive in the post as they get delivered to you electronically as soon as you place an order for them!  For more information please visit www.Karascope.com
 

2. School Management

LCP publishes guides to  primary school management and we now produce a range of resources for headteachers and senior leaders, plus school governors and other teaching staff, such as our ever-popular Policies for Primary Schools, Risk Assessments, A-Z Staff Handbook CDs plus many other titles including our new Teachers Friend Series of books and data assessment tools, including our innovative primary pupil tracking service - iTRACK Primary.
