About the programme

Our latest research review shows that school libraries have a positive impact on all areas of pupils’ learning, including the development of reading and writing skills, their self-esteem and their overall academic attainment.

The review also highlighted that good primary school libraries are run by knowledgeable staff and supportive parents and volunteers, who work together with access to library professionals. They also contain a high quality range of books and are integrated into the curriculum.

The online Foyle Primary School Library Course funded by the Foyle Foundation, is now available to all members of the National Literacy Trust. The e-learning course includes four modules which provide the skills, knowledge and access to expertise to help primary schools transform their school library.

The course can be accessed using your National Literacy Trust membership and using Google Chrome as the browser. Please read the instructions before you log in.
