Primary school libraries

The Cambridge Primary Review, published last week, applies to England but is still of interest to Scottish teachers and librarians. As well as addressing issues such as school starting age, the curriculum and supporting pupils with special needs, the study says that "libraries must not be replaced by banks of computers… To see screens as the 21st-century replacement for books is a grave mistake" and the authors also call for libraries that are "currently disappearing from schools" to be preserved.
