Equipment & Planner

Year 6


You must make sure that you are prepared for school and have the following items of equipment:

  • A school bag for books
  • Pens – black
  • Pencils
  • Ruler (30cm)
  • Eraser
  • Set squares
  • Protractor
  • Pair of compasses
  • Coloured pencils

A drawstring bag should not be used for your main school bag but only for additional equipment eg PE kit.

For some practical subjects additional uniform/equipment is needed, e.g. PE, Food Technology etc. and you will be given regular detailed information of these requirements.

Student Planner

You will be given a Planner at the start of the year which is a very valuable piece of your school equipment. The Planner is used for a number of aspects of your school life, including: recording homework; as a means for communication between school and home, as a means of providing your parents with information on some of the systems we have in school; as a means for you to record relevant green/yellow/red behaviour points. We ask that your parents sign the planner at the end of each term / half term.

The Cashless School Meals System

The Cashless School Meals System

Year 6

The school employs a cashless school meals system, which essentially means that you will not be paying for a school meal with cash at a cash till in the dining room.

A computer controlled by impact software will control the whole system by recognising each individual student, hold individual cash balances, record cash spent and cash received, record where money is spent, on what food, on any specific date and time of the day.

You will be recognised by your index finger print and by photograph. The selected food item will be entered into the system from an itemised keyboard, while the amount spent and the new cash balance will show on the display.

Methods of payment etc. will be communicated to all parents & students during enrollment process.

There are a number of school buses which travel to our school from the surrounding areas.
