The creation, implementation and regular updating of a library policy and development plan allows a school to maximise the impact of its library and learning resource provision, and is an essential task for anyone concerned to develop the library as a whole-school resource and focus for learning.
This revised and updated Guideline considers Accommodation, Learning Resources, Management and Staffing, and Library and Curriculum Support, and sets out "Ten Steps to Success". Three appendices give sample library policies from three primary schools, and there are four sample development plans.
Achieving a successful school library is a bit like gardening: "little and often, with regular input to obtain healthy growth and year-round interest". This Guideline, like the first edition, features "gardening tips", as well as "targets for best practice" and some useful recent OFSTED guidance.
