Our latest research review shows that school libraries have a positive impact on all areas of pupils’ learning, including their overall academic attainment, development of reading and writing skills, and self-esteem. 

It also found that good primary school libraries are run by supportive staff, contain a high quality range of books, are integrated into the curriculum and include parents. 

Love our Libraries helps to transform primary school libraries by giving teachers, teaching assistants and parents the skills they need to become library coordinators. 

After a successful pilot funded by Man Charitable Trust, we are currently developing a new online training course funded by the Foyle Foundation, which will be ready to use in the next academic year. Those who take part in the Foyle Foundation School Library Course will be equipped with the skills, knowledge and inspiration to make the most of their schools’ books and reading spaces, to run motivational reading activities and to turn children into life-long readers. 

If you would like to register your interest and be the first to hear about the brand new online training, please enter your details into our expression of interest form.
