Advisory Panels

Our Advisory Panels are made up of enthusiastic teachers from a diverse range of backgrounds and are from, or have experience of the varying communities our books represent.  They are all practitioners who have used the Literary Curriculum and have a passion for children's literature and recommend books from time to time to the panel.  Members sit on one of three panels that meet yearly to ensure our chosen texts meet standards of inclusivity and authenticity in terms of representation of cultures and communities. Our advisory panels are used to provide advice and guidance in a non-executive function and are a non-decision making forum.

The three panels are as follows:

Race & Cultures Representation Advisory Panel
LGBTQ+ Representation Panel
Disabilities & SEND Representation Advisory Panel

They also meet at other ad hoc points throughout the year to offer perspectives about new texts we are considering adding to the curriculum.
