In advance of a new academic year beginning in September, we know your children will be stocking up on items for their pencil cases ready for the Autumn Term. Please refer to the equipment list in your child's planner which is also available on the School Uniform page of the website. One essential item is a black pen and, whilst we don't stipulate what type, we always encourage children to avoid using biro. A black handwriting pen such as a roller-ball or ink pen (not necessarily a fountain pen) really does make a difference to the presentation of your children's work and is actively encouraged by the English team here at school! Please be aware of this when making stationery selections over the summer.
