APPG report on school libraries published!

BeatingHeartoftheSchoolThe All Party Parliamentary Group on school libraries has published their final report 'The Beating Heart of the School'. It is available to download and read from the Cilip website. The report makes four recommendations which are essential reading to librarians working in schools and their management teams.

The report calls for every child in the UK to have a good library in their secondary school. 

It makes four recommendations:

  • The Department for Education starts collecting figures about the number of schools that have a library and librarian
  • The Minister for Schools examines the full contribution that school libraries make to children’s education and development
  • Ofsted includes libraries in their inspections
  • The Department for Education has a lead staff-member for school libraries
