    Might be easier to deny access to Microsoft Office on a special login and give the child Notepad as a document editor.

    It is, after all, about content not layout.

    It is possible to turn spell checking off in Word 2003 - Tools/Options - Spelling and Grammar tab. But I guess you knew that, so it depends on how you have it set up for pupils. Do you have mandatory profiles, GPO settings etc? As stated might be easier, and quicker to set up a new user.

    Wordpad doesn't have a spellchecker, and comes with Windows..

    Which is what we use when we need to have a machine setup for an exam for the "Broken arm brigade".

    Another one here for using Wordpad.
    We use it because of the lack of spellchecker but also because you can insert images / screen grabs and you can use bold - underline - italics etc.
