What does it mean to be a duffy school

Being a Duffy school means more than just handing out books to children. Our schools play an active part in fostering a love of books and reading in their children. Each school appoints a Duffy Coordinator who will drive the programme and coordinate a variety of events throughout the year. These include:

  • Distributing and collating book order forms
  • Liaising with Duffy Books in Homes to organise Role Model assemblies, Duffy Theatre performances and special awards throughout the year
  • Keeping in touch with your school's sponsor
  • Organising weekly 'Caught Being Good' awards for students
  • Nominating annual 'Caught Being Good' awards for parents and grandparents
  • Completing an online survey twice a year
  • Meeting annually with a Duffy Regional Representative

You can download our Year Planner to see all the events that Duffy schools take part in during the year.
