It has been a busy time of the year with numerous INSET sessions going on across the country.


I am also currently working with Peters Books on a new online product for schools and libraries called Impact through Reading. This exciting product aims to put the library at the centre of literacy improvements and reading for pleasure in schools.


It is a tool to track and prove impact and to share resources and strategies with colleagues across the school. We are currently running user group sessions across the country so look out for one near you!
