    ............and a comma between 'parent' and 'was' would read better!!!

    The parent was *an* ex teacher.

    How rude of the parent to hand that back to you! Good to know they categorised themselves outside of the "normal" bracket! Ha ha!!! How did they become an ex-teacher? Are they just having time off to have children or were they sacked???
    My suggestion in future would be to have someone proof read your reports before you send them out. If you word process your reports, the spell and grammar check on there is often very good at picking up simple mistakes.
    As a parent (as well as a teacher), I find it incredibly frustrating if I receive anything written about my children where the grammar, spelling and punctuation is less than adequate. My son's LSA spells "literacy" as "litrucy". It drives me INSANE! but I would never ever send it back to her "marked". Perhaps I should?
  5. I'm afraid that I would have been SOOOOOO embarassed if this had happened to me that I would not have wanted anyone else to know!!

    What is your HT like? I've never worked for one who didn't scrutinize every single report before it went home.
