... and should you do anything about it if not? I'm talking about the secondary school situation where a pupil takes a report round every lesson to get behaviour and effort commented on every lesson. In my lesson today, I noticed a pupil had received good grades from a colleague for a lesson yesterday. Straight after that lesson yesterday that same colleague had told me that the pupil's behaviour had been less than perfect and barely any work had been done. An experienced teaching assistant said the same thing - and he'd even sat with the pupil for a good part of the lesson to help with focus and avoid distracting others. Last week my colleague said this pupil was never a problem with them, which I did question when we spoke to plan the lessons - it's a shared group. My colleague is a respected and capable member of staff and we work somewhere where a pupil's poor behaviour or lack of effort isn't instantly blamed on the clas teacher, thankfully. So why not fill out a report card warts and all so that the pupil can get the support/ kick up the behind that's needed, and parents get a true picture of what's going on in school?
