Early findings from the 2020 School Library Survey (UK)

25 February 2021 Share

We recently partnered with Softlink to launch the 2020 School Library Survey. Conducted between 24th November and 20th December 2020, the survey asked a range of questions about school library spaces, staffing, resourcing, the impact of COVID-19 and other important issues that arose last year.

We received a fantastic response, with valuable feedback shared by school library staff across the UK, and would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who participated.

The full report, with breakdowns of responses by school type, size, and education provider will be available in April. Meanwhile, while we continue to work through the responses, we’re pleased to be able to share some early findings.

This early findings report provides an overview of participant types; school library spaces, seating, opening hours and the effect of COVID; school library collections; staffing; and budgets.
