What does the daily planner look like?

Our teacher diaries can be created with a range of daily planner options to suit your needs. We understand that different schools schedule their days differently, so we have built a wide selection of styles that will suit everyone.

A new addition to our Teacher Planner range, this daily planner enables you to record activities, notes and reminders for up to 5 periods. Currently only available for Compact B5 sized diaries.

Up to 6 Period Planner

Up to 9 Period Planner

How are your teacher planners bound?

Our teacher planners are available in two binding options. The most popular is wire bound, which is strong and convenient. Alternatively, we are able to supply our A4 teacher diaries with a loose leaf binding option. This allows you to add and remove pages as the school year goes on.


What should a teacher planner include?

Teacher planners can contain a variety of features, but some are more important than others. All teacher planners should contain; time period planners, an action planning section, an area for continuous professional development (CPD), class information as well as the school’s mission statement and vision. To find out more on what a teacher planner should include, we’ve created an extensive guide on this exact topic.


Do I need a teacher planner?

Every teacher or lecturer needs a good planner to keep their classroom and lessons organised. Without one, it’s very difficult to keep things like lesson plans, to-do lists and class information in one place. For a small outlay, teacher planners dramatically increase the output and decrease stress amongst teachers.


When should I buy a teacher planner?

Finding the best teacher planner for a new academic year can be tricky, but we suggest you start looking towards the end of the school year. Buying a teacher planner in the months of June, July and August will allow time for designing, printing and the delivery of your new diary!


How big are Penstripe’s teacher planners?

One size doesn’t fit all! That’s why at Penstripe, our personalised teacher planner solutions come in two different sizes. Available in A4 or B5 there’s a size and layout to meet your needs, no matter how big or small.


Can I customise my teacher planner?

Our teacher planner covers come with space for your school logo and details to be overprinted in black as standard. You can also go fully personalised and work with us to design a full colour bespoke teacher planner cover.

Penstripe has also been passionately supporting the Two Sides campaign in recent years, in order to help build a sustainable future for our teacher planners.
