The children's planners are checked every week by a member of staff. Writing in planners is a very good way of communicating if you have any queries and are unable to speak to me in person.
The children can gain a housepoint for having their planner signed by a parent each week. An additional housepoint can be given if the parent writes that their child has read every school night (a quick message at the end of the week in the comments section is fine for this; you don't need to write it in on a daily basis).
It should be noted that planners are only checked once per week (On either a Monday or Thursday), so if you have any urgent questions, please contact/approach me directly (or ask your child to show me their planner when they come in).
