Here at Campsmount every student is issued with a planner.
Planners are an important part of every students equipment and help form a link between home and school. They act as diary for students to write homework and reminders but also record achievement, including rewards. Additionally, they are used as a teaching and learning tool. Inside students planners are whiteboards; A,B,C,D multiple choice cards and RAG pages so students can interact more with the lesson content and staff can see quickly how much students have understood. We expect students to have their planners with them every day. It is school policy that they are out on desks and incorporated into lesson planning.
The planner is a key tool for communication between school and home. In a student’s planner, parents or carers can see:
The planner is similar to a journal or diary and students should use this to jot down notes that are important to them. They should write down any homework tasks and dates that they need to get homework in by.
Parents or carers are able to write a note to the form tutor or class teacher if needed. Planners will be checked regularly and any issues/queries will be dealt with as quickly as possible.
