- Insights into reading attitudes and interests to inform a whole-school reading strategy or identify gaps in library provision.
- A starting point for conversations with individual pupils about their reading.
- Help identifying individuals or groups of students who need extra support.
- Baseline and ongoing reporting to enable schools to measure impact.
Cost: £399 per school per year (includes membership of the School Library Association worth £95 per year).
