Hi, No really honestly, they are allowed to take them home when you have finished with them for evidence and filling in the profile document. Where are you getting your information???!!! In every school I have worked in and know people in they go home! I have 2 children myself and have received both of theirs at the end of reception myself. Please do not shred them of course the parents are allowed to keep them. You obviously have only written information in with regard to that child - they are an open document anyway and the parents have a right to see them whenever they request. I would check out your source!! Our Early Years Adviser says yes send them home too, and a very dear friend of mine was an Early years adviser and has just recently retired and thinks this is mad - of course they can go home!!!! Why do them otherwise!!!!!
