Schools can be accredited with a bronze, silver or gold award, which recognises the effort that they have made in promoting the joy of reading amongst their pupils.
In order to attain these awards schools will be assessed across six themes, and whether they meet the criteria for bronze, silver or the gold award.
Key themes include:
- Leadership and management
- Workforce development
- Reading promotion
- Reading events and groups
- School wide opportunities for reading for enjoyment
- Family/community involvement/ public library service
“We are delighted to be supporting this initiative. Reading is incredibly important and encouraging children to enjoy literature helps develop a habit that lasts a lifetime.”
Andy Parkinson from the National Literacy Trust
