Equipment

Students need to ensure they arrive at school properly equipped to learn each morning. The minimum expected equipment is listed below. It is also essential that students have a sensibly sized bag to hold all their school equipment and PE kit—small fashion bags and handbags are not acceptable.

  • A suitably sized bag (Small bags and handbags are not suitable)
  • West Exe School Planner
  • Two pens (blue or black ink)
  • Two pencils, a 30cm ruler and a rubber
  • Coloured pencils
  • Calculator Casio fx-83GT Plus or equivalent
  • Geometry set
  • Protective apron for Design and Technology lessons
  • PE kit for PE lessons
  • Headphones for use in Computer Science
  • Memory stick ( 1GB recommended, any brand)

Class teachers will give students permission to use headphones, where they are required for a specific task, at the start of each lesson. Students who choose to use their headphones without being given permission will be subject to the usual behaviour sanctions.

All items of clothing and equipment should be clearly marked with the owner’s name.

Mobile phones and MP3 players are permitted provided they are turned off during lessons and exams and stored in students’ bags. Headphones must not be visible during lesson times. These items are brought into school at the owner’s risk.
