Benefits of school membership:
Libraries and other institutions will also receive a special Library Poetry Pack, complete with colour posters, advice and ideas, which was conceived in consultation with librarians, to promote poetry and develop its readership.
The Schools Network Education Package extends the benefits of Solo School Membership across wider clusters of schools - and offers a choice of inset training, poet visits or a bespoke combination to all members. The group of schools share the cost of the activity between them - benefitting from economies of scale whilst generating an exciting exchange of ideas and best practise across schools. Packages are tailored to the particular needs of each school network and we are able to work with groups of anything from 4-40+ schools.
