We Are Reading...

Lancashire Authority have designated the Spring of 2018 to the Spring of 2019  as a “Let’s Get Reading” Year in which all schools, libraries, children and young people’s services work together to promote reading in all its guises.  It is headed by Paul Duckworth one of the Primary Senior Advisors and supported by a steering group made up of headteachers, primary and secondary representatives, the County Library Service, post 16 providers, Lancashire Advisory and Consultancy teams, Virtual School Provider, SEN advisors, childminder provision – indeed all services connected with young people from nursery to 18years.

Those schools “taking the pledge” will be given a certificate and the use of the official logo.  Schools are encouraged to personalise the logo to suit their own context or initiatives.  

The project will end in the Spring of 2019 with celebratory events but it is hoped that the good practice and enthusiasm generated will be sustained beyond that and will enrich the reading cultures of schools who have taken part.
