Our compact school organisation station will fit into even the smallest of homes and will make school-home communication so much easier and quicker.

Just a small collection of school essentials that as a parent you need to hand, just to cut down on all the frantic searching through cupboards for envelopes and counting out milk money in 1p coins from the penny jar…

What you’ll need
  • a small space you can display kids timetables and after school schedules
  • room and storage for a small amount of stationery
  • writing paper and envelopes
  • money envelopes
  • pens
  • small tin of money which you keep topped up for those last minute “I have to take a £1 into school today” type things.
  • family diary (I do this on the computer/mobile phones using shared calendar so all family members have access to it)
What you do

Make space at home for your organisation station.

  • Can be a small notice board with stationery storage built on.
  • Can be the side of the fridge and use magnetic storage pots.
  • A small space on the shelf in the hallway or office area.

Collect together all the items you know you need for home-school communication and arrange them in an easy to access way.

Run with it

Get the kids on board – so they know that once they get home any school letters or diaries that need signing are placed at the organisation station and that way nothing gets missed.

As letters come home from school make sure you transfer event dates straight into the shared family diary so that everyone has a clear view of what’s going on and time doesn’t get double booked.

When stationery items or money pot coins are running low replenish and keep organised.
