Equipment

When your child starts at Larkmead, the following equipment is essential;

  • a reasonably large and firm bag in which to carry their books
  • a pen
  • a pencil
  • a rubber
  • a 30cm ruler
  • coloured pencils
  • a book in which they can make rough notes
  • a separate bag in which to carry their P.E. kit

We suggest you do not buy Maths instruments or a calculator until your child has talked to their Maths teacher, as you could find that you have bought expensive equipment which is not required.

We know that some students tend to carry all their equipment around with them every day.  Only bringing in books and equipment needed for the day is a useful habit for students to develop, reducing the weight of their bag considerably.
