We know this a really tricky time for everyone, and school staff are at the heart of our response to the current situation. You'll be busy working out how to support pupils and their families in a fast-changing landscape.
For 30 years Pandora Books have been reading hundreds of books and carefully crafting these into perfectly formed collections to meet the needs of children in school. Reading is key to almost everything, literacy unlocks all other subjects and is a vitally important life skill. It's also a doorway:
'We lose ourselves in books, we find ourselves there too'
We absolutely plan on being here to support schools with putting the right books in children's hands and opening those doorways in their imaginations.
For now we've moved many of our office staff to homeworking and are making use of the additional space created to enable our warehouse team to practice social distancing. We are also continuing the strict hygiene regimes we've been using for the last few weeks, based on government advice.
We are working hard to see how we can support teachers and librarians in working with pupils at a distance and would really welcome any suggestions you might have.
Our phone lines are open and our customer service team are keen to answer any questions.
Stay safe and keep strong,
The Whole Pandora Books Team
