Love our Libraries transforms primary school libraries by developing the skills of teaching assistants, enabling them to become library coordinators.
Generously funded by the Man Charitable Trust, the programme benefits schools, pupils and families, by encouraging pupils to read more often and more widely.
Teaching assistants taking part in Love our Libraries 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.
The programme includes:
- Three days of face-to-face professional development for primary teaching assistants
- A series of tasks for teaching assistants to complete between sessions
- A gift of books for the school's library
- Free resources
- A year's membership of the National Literacy Trust's Network
The Love our Libraries initiative is currently in its pilot phase. We are working with five schools in London's Oval Learning Cluster of schools.
