May I take the opportunity to introduce myself?
My name is Ann Lambert and I am the librarian at Outwood Academy Adwick. I have worked at the Academy for over 19 years doing various jobs before securing my current role as Head of Learning Resources.
The Library and Learning Resource Centre is situated on the first floor of our new Academy, and houses some 16,500 resources.
I support and work with students to promote the learning resources and activities the library has to offer and provide additional support to the learning and development curriculum. The library has become a learning zone not just for students of the Academy but parents too. Courses in Typing (OCR) are offered alongside Reading Matters workshops, Senior Citizens activities and many more. Many adult learners have successfully completed their qualifications within the library to include Literacy and the Text Processing Business Professional course alongside our own students.
Here at the Academy, students have the opportunity to put their ideas forward via ‘Student Voice’, giving them the opportunity to speak with senior staff at school and inform them what they feel they need to support them in their learning. We believe that this should be extended to parents and carers of our students too and give you the opportunity to be a part of what happens, putting forward your ideas and being involved in the development of the Academy at Adwick.
I would like to invite you to be part of ‘Community Voice’ and continue the relationship you have with your child’s school and his/her learning and development. To become part of our group please do not hesitate to call me on 01302 722237 extension 245 or alternatively complete the form below. Thank you in anticipation of your support.

How has the LPPA helped Outwood Academy Adwick?
“The LPPA process has helped us focus on identifying the fundamental areas of staff and teacher relationships that need a change at a whole school level. This focus has then let us plan, both strategically and practically, to improve how the school meets parents’ needs so they in turn help their children’s learning. This, linked with our new mentoring systems, has led to a significant rise in standards across the school over the period.”
