As parents/carers prepare secondary students to return to school, please note the following with regards to equipment.
In order to minimise the risk of transmission, we will expect every student to arrive at school with their own equipment. Students must not share their own equipment with anyone else. It is essential that every student carry the following each day:
- An appropriate bag
- Water bottle (they will not be permitted to use the water fountains)
- Planner (issued on the first day)
- Glue Stick
- Exercise books/Folders/text books (provided by the school unless otherwise advised) for your lessons (students will be instructed if they are allowed to leave these items in school)
- Scientific Calculator
The following Items are also desirable:
- Coloured pencils
- A pair of compasses
- Pencil Sharpener
We advise that students have a pencil case for all their equipment and that this is labelled with their name and year group. All other specialist school equipment will be cleaned thoroughly where it is shared by different groups. This will involve the cleaning team using a range of processes to keep identified equipment clean.
