Society Of Authors: Primary And Secondary Schools Should Be Required By Law To Have A School Library And A Trained Librarian

Posted at 11:03AM Monday 02 Jun 2014

The Society's Chief Executive, Nicola Solomon, has written to Labour MP Harriet Harman, shadow secretary of state for culture, media and sport, on the subject of school libraries in the UK.

The Society has made the following three recommendations:

Primary and secondary schools should be required by law to have a school library and a trained librarian.

Teachers, in all stages of their careers, should be supported through a range of initiatives to inspire a love of reading for pleasure in their pupils.

Schools' libraries as well as literacy (and literary) strategies (including author and illustrator events) should be specifically acknowledged by Ofsted in their reports.
