The planners contain all the relevant information parents/carers and pupils need to make sure they are equipped for each day. Information around Parents’ Evenings, ICT usage, Target Setting and Attendance are included.
It is expected that parents/carers check planners for pupil’s homework on a daily basis and pupils will be expected to write their homework into their planner.
Pupils can also use their planners to collect House stickers and stamps for excellent work or an excellent attitude to learning. The planner is an important and an integral part of the daily life of a Dearne ALC pupil.
