    Does your HT make sure they're presentable?

  3. I have sometimes felt very embarrassed handing out letters because of the grammar/spelling mistakes. I don't mention it to the HT because, to be honest, I think that she does proof read them.
     
  4. Ha! I always thought so - but when my son recently came home with a letter asking for "a pair of named willies in a bag" I started to wonder.... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No, they're diabolical, as is the school website. What I don't understand is why none of the teachers or the head make sure letters are correct. It's gives the most amazingly bad impression for a school a school to send out letters with spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors. But the website really takes the biscuit. It's been around for a good few years and has even been updated but the front page is still full of terrible mistakes.

    Our HT checks everything that goes out down to the last comma. (I debated putting one in after 'out' just then but decided not to - she would have put me right.)

    Now, InkyP, you have to ask youself if [or should that be whether?] you really needed those brackets.
