BBC School Report


BBC School Report day - Thursday 15 March 2018

The Kings and Queens News Team swapped their classroom for the newsroom on Thursday 15 March 2018 when they took part in this year's BBC News School Report.

Local Libraries: the next chapter?

Close to home here in Cheddar, for this year’s BBC News School Report, The Kings and Queens News Team are looking today at the Somerset County Council consultation about local libraries.

The Council have invited the community to share their views by completing a questionnaire on potential changes they are considering for the future delivery of library services here in Cheddar and across Somerset in view of continued challenging financial times.

The Council have successfully reduced the libraries’ budget by 20% since 2011, whilst keeping all Somerset libraries open. But they are still seeking a way forward to keep the libraries service on a sustainable financial footing.

For many, a library is the heart of a community and the team will be speaking to and exploring a number of source; as well as looking at the library – and not forgetting the Academy’s Learning Resource Centre Library.
