Once the spring term holiday arrives it means one thing for most teachers… REPORT WRITING TIME! Now is not the time to panic but to prepare to be organised for the task at hand.

Teacher writing a report
It is really important to think about each individual child when writing their annual report, not just the class as a whole. When writing each report try to think about:-
  • What has made that child shine this year?
  • What progress has that child made academically and socially
  • How is this child doing in relation to age related expectations
  • How is this child progressing from their end of previous Key Stage target? If the child was meeting age related expectation from the previous Key Stage exit but is now accessing more greater depth learning, this is something to be celebrated within the report. However, if a child is not following their flight path from the previous Key Stage exit then school needs to show how they have recognised this and actions in place to support the child in reaching their full potential. This may be something you need to speak to other members of staff about, eg a TA who has been running a child’s intervention.
  • What difficulties has the child shown and what has been done in class to address these difficulties?
