Funding

The First Minister's Reading Challenge has now opened applications for two funds to support primary and secondary schools develop a reading culture.

For primary schools: Inspiring classrooms offers funding to invite an author, illustrator, storytelling or poet into your classroom to work with pupils and to buy books or other resources to make the most of the visit.

Applications for this fund are now open to registered primary schools and will close on Friday 16th November 2018. For further information and to apply online, see: Inspiring Classrooms

For secondary schools: Creative Workshops will offer funding to invite an author, illustrator, storytelling or poet into your classroom to work with pupils. Alternatively, you could go for a more creative approach such as using your funding to invite a filmmaker to create book recommendation videos with pupils.

Applications for this fund are now open to registered secondary schools and will close on Friday 30th November 2018. For further information and to apply online, see: Creative Workshops
