“To create and inspire we must engage with information – but first we have to find it”
Sarah Pavey
There is a particularly celebrated quote in school librarian circles that goes, ‘Data is not information, information is not knowledge, knowledge is not understanding, understanding is not wisdom’. For Sarah, a school librarian since 1992 in the state and independent sectors as well as a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, this sums up the challenge facing everyone involved in education today.

And it is a challenge that Sarah relishes.

With 800 new websites coming online each day not to mention the wealth of books, new and old, at our disposal both online and on the shelves, the role of the school librarian as the gatekeeper to the written word has never been more important. But to rise to the challenge the librarian must take his or her place side by side with the other educational professionals in our schools. Sarah will show you how.

Governor Event

Being a governor is an incredibly important task these days so we are delighted when we are asked to support them in their work in all sorts of schools around the country. Apart from ensuring the event is an entertaining and enjoyable one for all, especialy as it is so often on a rainy Saturday, we make sure our input is informative, relevant, up to date and guarantees all governors go back into their schools knowing what to look for, what to do and the rights sorts of questions to ask.
