A5 size has been the industry standard homework planner, sixth form planner and student diary for many years and is still the most popular for most.
However, some schools and colleges have switched to the smaller A6 or True Pocket size – in these cases, we always suggest they consider these two facts:
1. A5 gives your students plenty of space to write their homework notes. It’s also the best size for including your school’s merits and rewards system.
2. A6/Pocket size are more portable for your students to carry around, but they don’t offer as much space to write or record information.
We also suggest you ask yourself these two questions:
1 “do we want our school planners or college diaries to be used effectively by our students?”
2 “what do we want our school planners or college diaries to do?”
We recommend A6 and True Pocket sized planners for those schools and colleges who mainly need to communicate important information to their students and not if they require students to record lots of information.
There’s a similar dilemma for Teacher Planners
A4 has been the traditional size, catering for the substantial information teachers need to record at each lesson and meeting – but this can be difficult to carry around all day, every day.
In recent years the B5 size teacher planner has become as popular as the A4 size, being approximately two thirds the size, it’s still big enough for recording lots of information and is more transportable.
A brief mention to A5 Teacher Planners – purchased by some schools for their teachers but tends to be purchased for non-teaching staff who don’t need to record lesson information, but still need a daily diary.
So there you have it, purchasing a school homework planner, college student diary or teacher planner can be a size thing!
