Sent out the children's reports on Friday. As I have recently started a maternity cover, the previous teacher had written the bulk of the reports, All the foundation subjects, Higher group Literacy and Numeracy and half class general comments. All I had to do was finish off other bits of Lit. and Num. and add a few childrens general comments. OMG!!! This morning knew something was up when the parallel teacher stopped talking to her TA when I entered the room. Then first reply slip from a parent with mention of a mistake. (written with good humour) Then next reply slip pointing out mistake and asking for a correct copy... and so it continued. One childs parent (who happens to be a DH!) had highlighted all of the mistakes, then scanned and emailed the school.Two members of staff who's children in my class had also highlighted the errors to my DH (although done out of kindness to warn of potential problems). Turns out that the foundation subjects all had spelling mistakes, typo's, grammar mistakes. The works! I hadn't read any of those parts so hadn't spotted any of the mistakes. Complete C*** up was then completed by me copying and pasting then forgetting to change she to he on several girls reports in Lit! I have been on the edge of tears all day. HT wasn't in but I changed all of the highlighted errors on every childs report, printed off and TA and I read again and found more errors that had been missed. Edited again and printed off now (hopefully) accurate and correct reports. Letter was sent home today to all parents of my class saying sincere apologies for the error in reports. Amended versions out tomorrow. Feeling like ****. Gave the HT new copies at 7.30 tonight. I know it's a learning curve in NQT year but that was one hell of a steep one!
