My school no longer does any written reports - we input pupils' current level and give them a number 1-4 (1 being excellent, 4 being unsatisfactory) for progress towards target, organisation, conduct & effort. That's all the parents get. It takes a massive amount of work off staff but as a teacher I often find it very difficult to decide what to give them (what if a pupil is excellent in some lessons and awful in others? What if they're well organised in terms of bringing equipment, but never do homework?) and I have my doubts about how useful it actually is. If I was a parent, I think I'd be unhappy with that and want something a bit more specific!
