Student Planners

With technology being at the forefront of the modern world, schools are faced with the pressure to invest in electronic student planners over a traditional paper planner. It might be cheaper and may save a small amount of time, however, what affect is it having on your student’s homework submission rates or their behaviour towards planning and time management? Here at hdc we have considered the affects digital platforms are having on students and why paper planners are a must have.

Promotes Corporate Identity

Customise your front cover with your school motto, name, crest or year group. It will separate your school, a year group or a house from another and will give your students a sense of belonging to a special place.

Visual Benefits

Whilst typing can be quicker, forcing yourself to spell it out with pen and paper helps your brain to retain the information. Your students can highlight or colour code important dates or specific tasks they want to stand out in their planner.

Comprehensive Planning System

Digital platforms rely on access to the internet and wifi connections, they also require access to computers, smart phones or tablets. All of these devices are not readily available to all students and parents. A traditional paper planner is always accessible.

Classic Planner

Our classic student planner is a full colour A5 planner that is suitable for all year groups and key stages. The contemporary style encourages students to plan their academic studies in an efficient manner.

A budget version of this planner is also available. Please contact us for more information.

Accessories

Why not add some of these innovative additions to your student planner to enhance the effectiveness of it.

Traffic Light Cards

Traffic light cards are a great way for students to communicate with the teacher. You can also add annotation to the traffic light cards, for example with printed ticks, crosses, smiley faces etc.

Whiteboards

Open up another communication channel between student and teacher by incorporating a ‘show me’ whiteboard on the back cover of your student planner.

Plastic Wallets

We can bind a plastic wallet into your pupil diary to provide your students with additional storage space.

Corner Pockets

You can use these as a method of preventing additional notes from falling out of the pupil diary or being lost.

Alternative Cover Printing

Open up another communication channel between student and teacher by incorporating a ‘show me’ whiteboard on the back cover of your student planner.

Extra Customised Pages

Most of our student planners come with 16 customised printed pages. If this is not enough, we can easily incorporate additional pages.

Colour Pages

You can use full colour to enhance your student planners. Make the page stand out so students are drawn to the information.

Coloured Paper

Using coloured paper for your customised pages can help to distinguish between sections.

Page Markers

Page markers help the students mark their place and they can also use the page markers as a ruler and a protractor.
