What is the role about?
Mischief Makers is this year’s national Summer Reading Challenge that runs during the summer holiday. Children of all ages are encouraged to read six books. All children taking part receive a certificate and a medal when they complete the challenge. There is an additional scheme for children 10 and over. You will be working with children and their parents or carers, encouraging them to join the challenge and talking to them about the books they have been reading.

What will you get from volunteering?

How much time would you be asked to contribute?
To be agreed, but a minimum of 18 hours (approximately 6 sessions of 3 hours each) from Saturday 14 July to Saturday 1 September. You’re welcome to complete more hours, and it may also be possible to volunteer for the Summer Reading Challenge at other libraries, by arrangement with the Library Supervisor.
What training and support will you receive?
Your placement library will invite you to a training session in July where you’ll be given a tour of the library and the opportunity to meet library staff and other volunteers. We’ll send you a number of email updates during the summer with information about your role, details about the Summer Reading Challenge and links to training and resources. You’ll have a named Supervisor and there will be ongoing support from local library staff.

Endeavour House has chosen to support My Blue Heart. The organisation exists to encourage understanding and compassion towards everyone who has to live on without someone they love.
They aim to give bereaved people a way to show others they are grieving through wearing a heart shaped badge, in forget-me-not blue, with a red heart in its heart. The badge conveys the message ‘I carry your heart in mine' and always will.
Key Stage 4 Options Subjects 2018 - 2020
The selection of optional subjects is one of the crucial moments in any student’s secondary education. All students have already started to complete work of GCSE standard in all their subjects, but will opt to specialise and follow a two year GCSE programme, starting in Year 10. The experience of studying some of the GCSE content in Year 9 will allow staff to give specific guidance to ensure students have the aptitude for particular subjects and allow students to make a more informed choice.
