Primary Parliament Week
The SLA works on an ongoing basis to ensure school libraries are included in educational discussions, and recognised as part of the educational landscape. We know that school libraries can contribute to finding solutions for some of the most important issues facing education today - well-being of pupils and staff, literacy levels, the vocabulary gap, and cultural capital to name a few.
At certain times, we undertake a campaign to highlight something, this page is where they will be listed. Our focus at the moment is on the Great School Libraries campaign.
The campaign is a collaboration between CILIP, CILIP's SLG and the SLA. There is a working party chaired by Alison Tarrant (CEO of the SLA). The Campaign will last for three years, with the aim of bringing school libraries and librarians back to every school in the UK, but also by gathering data on the quality and quantity of school libraries that already exist, via a data collecting subgroup. The Campaign finishes in the summer of 2021.
We have three main aims:
We are pleased to be taking part in Libraries Week 2021 between the 4th and 10th October. We'll have announcements, reveals and competitions, so remember to check back for more information.
Libraries Week 2021 will focus on supporting active and engaged communities.
Follow @librariesweek on Twitter to keep up to date on the 2021 campaign and join in the conversation at #LibrariesWeek.
The SLA are proud to be official partners of UK Parliament Week (1st-7th November).
We will be providing resources, ideas and activities to help you make the most of UK Parliament Week, and get all pupils involved with democracy, and realising their role in it. You can find out more about UK Parliament Week here: https://www.ukparliamentweek.org/
