LRC

The LRC has an important role in the academy and the wider community being far more than a traditional library. It offers a range of information and opportunities to benefit students, staff, parents and the community as a whole. The LRC strives to:

  1. Serve the learning needs of all students and staff by providing information in either hard or electronic form
  2. Be a centre of information and activity for the academy and the wider community for the promotion of learning and teaching
  3. Be innovative and promote good practice in the ways it supports the development of literacy
  4. Help to engage parents and the wider community in the promotion of learning for all.
  5. To work collaboratively with disadvantaged groups, existing users and non-users, voluntary and community groups and other community service providers.
  6. To reflect and lead on local and national strategies for learning.

As the LRC develops it will meet the needs of all learners and include: reading groups, writing groups, language classes, family learning activities, art and museum exhibitions, cultural activities such as drama, health activities such as well-being classes, information seminars about local volunteering or other opportunities, work experience and outreach activities into more hard to reach areas of the community.
