SLS-UK School Library Award

We are delighted to offer schools in Knowsley, Liverpool and Sefton the opportunity to accredit your school library via our National Award scheme.

The award is a self assessment process which is carried out by a designated member of school staff and endorsed by the Head Teacher. It is an audit of 20 key activities with supporting documentation where necessary. This is then submitted to the School Library Service for assessment.

The process is designed to be flexible and achievable for busy people. The assessment tool provides a measure of how well your school library is doing. It gives an snapshot of where your library is at the moment and enables you to plan for future progression. On completion, each school will receive a certificate to display in the school foyer and one for your school library.

If your school would like to work towards achieving the SLS-UK School Library Award, please contact us for an application pack. There is an administration fee of £50 for schools who subscribe to Knowsley School Library Service; £60 for non-subscribing schools who are members of the School Library Association or £70 for all other schools.
