Taking it as read

MORE than 20 schools across Liverpool received an award for their work in getting young people to read for pleasure. The Liverpool Reading Quality Mark (LRQM) was launched last year in partnership with the National Literacy Trust and encourages schools to adopt innovative and creative practices to promote reading for pleasure, it is also the first award of this type in the North West.

It forms part of the City of Readers campaign which aims to make sure every child leaves primary school able to read. Pupils and staff from the schools took part in a special celebration event at Liverpool’s Central Library where Councillor Lana Orr, Mayoral lead for reading, presented each school with plaques.
