Whickham Equipment

As part of our continuing drive to raise standards and achievement, the school planner must be utilised effectively by pupils, parents and staff as a medium for communication and also as a teaching and learning tool which will be used in the classroom and at home. In addition we expect all pupils to have an equipment pack which will enable full participation in lessons.

The equipment pack is critical to ensuring that you are fully prepared to learn and can present your work to the highest standard.  Equipment packs should be replenished or replaced if items are lost or have been used up.

We expect you to ensure that your pack is always fully equipped with all the basic equipment expected within any school, this includes items such as pens and pencils. If a pack is damaged then it is your responsibility to ensure it is replaced with a clear pencil case.

Items required:

  • Compass
  • Eraser
  • Pens (1 black, 1 green)
  • Pencil
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Protractor
  • Green highlighter
  • Coloured pens or pencils
  • Whiteboard pen
  • Whiteboard cleaning cloth
  • Post it pad
  • Index/Flash cards
  • Ruler

Equipment packs can be purchased from the school via ParentPay
