Why use customised student planners?
A custom planner is the perfect resource to promote strong organisational skills. A custom planner gives every student a tool designed to maximise productivity and improve outcomes.

- Homework Planning

Why are student planners important to parents?
Time-management and homework success can be key to achieving top grades.
When it comes to helping with homework, it can be difficult for parents to understand how much support is needed.
Some may worry they are not doing enough to support learning outside the classroom. Customized student planners help parents understand a child’s workload and needs.
Pages that are designed for the school’s exact needs tend to be used more consistently. They can be designed to promote strong communication between school, child and parent.
Allowing parents to support learning while upholding standards set by schools.
Will our planners last the school year?
Our student planners are made from materials that will survive constant use. We guarantee our coil binding to last the school year (barring intentional acts of destruction!).
- Crush, twist or bend – they always returning to their original shape
- Will not cut or tear the pages
- Works equally well with any number of pages
We also offer metal spiral, twin loop wiro, stitched and more binding types. However, coil binding is the choice we recommend in most cases.
To aid durability, covers are printed on heavy card and laminated both sides. Clear poly covers also add a high degree of robustness to most bind types. These covers have rounded corners so that they will not damage other items in school bags!
How can student planners help ensure a safe and successful school year?
Our customised student planners are the perfect place to keep important information, procedures and policies to ensure a safe and successful year. Use our topic-relevant library pages to ensure important information is always at hand for students, parents and teachers.
Ensure pupils have key curriculum content whether at home or school. Reduce students’ need to share textbooks and other printed content. Include bound-in clear wallets, allowing printed policy pages to be swapped easily at short notice. No need to rip out pages.
How can I make homework diaries for my school?
Use our homework recording pages to create dedicated custom homework planners or diaries. We have a variety of designs in our library, which can be used as shown or amended to better fit your needs. Alternatively, we can create a new design for you.
A customised homework diary can be a powerful tool in supporting your school’s home-school communication and reinforcing your school systems.

What Are Fully Customised School Planners?
For their 2015/16 student planners, Essex-based school Passmores Academy chose to have two editions: one for Key Stage 3 students, and one for Key Stage 4 Students. With the two editions, Passmores was able to tailor content for relevant students – for example, inclusion of their personal development programme for KS4 students.
Teachers at the school have enjoyed using home-school communication pages to open a meaningful dialogue with parents, with one tutor saying that it’s useful to have a way to communicate non-urgent information with parents. Class tutors and subject teachers alike also like to have subject reference pages readily available to students.
