School Libraries: A Plan For Improvement


This School Library Commission’s report finds that while many school libraries are under-utilised resources they have a unique role in raising pupils’ literacy levels, promoting reading for pleasure and improving their access to knowledge. The report also says that many school libraries are an under-used resource in schools. While the report does not make the case for making school libraries statutory, it does call on the Department for Education (DfE) to endorse the role of school libraries in supporting the new government’s renewed commitment to literacy.
