Hi I would be very interested to know whether the full annual report to parents re their children is going to be a thing of the past. I recently posted this on secondary Can I ask what form most end of year reports take. I know in our school each year has/had their 'full' report at different times so as to stagger the work involved for teachers. My twins in yr 7 have so far had one progress report each, which was a form telling me their past and present levels and predicted end of KS3 levels. They brought home their reports today with another of these sheets (Markuss you would love them, absolutely rifddled with sub levels!). There was also a brief paragraph from their respective form tutors explaining about the citizenship course and PSHEC, 2 lines about their contribution to the tutorials and 3 lines on attendance. (Both over 94% but comments from tutors to say they would like to see an improvement on these figures. My 2 older children at some time during yr 7 brought home very full reports with comments from each subject staff. Is this something that schools are moving away from. I think it is very helpful to parents to know from individual teachers how their children have settled in the first year of secondary. I have spoken to quite a few parents who were very shocked to receive such short reports on their children especially as there was never any notification that full annual reports were not going to be sent out anymore. As I mentioned when posting in secondary we have always had the parents evening (usually after the full school report so you have something to discuss) and one other progress report earlier in the year. One parent I spoke to had absolutely no idea what all of the levels meant and whether they were good or bad for her child (apart from English, Maths and Science where you can tell if your child has progressed from yr 6). I thought parents were to have more feed back from schools, not less, but I'm very interested to hear whether full reports are to be phased out.
