What is your advice about? Primary Reports
- Start early. Gather evidence so that your report is personal to each child. Focus on positives and identify areas for development rather than weaknesses.
- Read last year’s report first to avoid contradiction or repetition. Find the school style. Follow it.
- Ask a respected colleague for good examples. Magpie effective structures or key phrases.
- Get the children to collate their yearly highlights, targets, favourite bits in an appropriate way so that you can use this in your report.
- Do a couple and get someone else to check them so you don’t waste time if you haven’t struck the right note. Plan a schedule. Stick to it.
