Each year, Mrs Little is looking for dedicated students to become Pupil librarians. Applications are taken in the first month of the Autumn term and during this time, any student who wishes to apply, should ask Mrs Little for a form. They will be asked answer a couple of questions and to select which days and times (break/ lunch/ after school/ both) they are prepared to do. Librarians are then assigned based on availability and suitability and will be rotated on an October-February and Feb-July rota so that as many students as possible are given the opportunity as possible to participate.
