Inspiring Classrooms Evaluation

All primary schools that take part in the First Minister’s Reading Challenge are eligible to apply for Inspiring Classrooms funding. The grant pays for schools to bring authors in to inspire, motivate and celebrate their progress in creating a reading culture. The grant also includes funding for books and other resources to support the project.

In 2018, 100 schools across Scotland welcomed an author through Inspiring Classrooms. The infographic and case study below demonstrates the positive impact of the project on school communities. You can also hear from pupils, teachers, and author Keith Brumpton in our video case study from All Saints Primary in Inverclyde.

The application window for 2019 funding is now closed, but look out for announcements about funding for 2020 on the First Minister’s Reading Challenge website.
