Information literacy in the primary school library

Practical training on the role of the primary school library in supporting information literacy and ways to teach and reinforce information and library skills across the curriculum.

Anne's courses are suitable for library and literacy leaders and other interested staff. She adapts all her training to local needs and circumstances, and offers face-to-face and online options. She provides comprehensive handouts.

Participants can expect to gain:

  • more awareness of the value of the school library in supporting pupils' learning
  • greater understanding of the importance of information and library skills
  • extra methods for teaching pupils how to find, evaluate and handle information
  • subject-based and cross-curricular strategies for supporting information skills
  • new ideas for a progressive, whole-school approach to information literacy
  • opportunities to share good practice

What people say about this training

I feel far more/better informed. I am now going to plan inset for the whole staff and revise/review current lesson plans for KS1 & 2.

I left with lots of areas to think about. The progression of skills through the years was particularly interesting.

Other staff, non-library connected, would find this kind of information literacy useful, because it's cross-curricular and linked to teaching and learning skills.
