To be annoyed that nursery do not know my children's names?

My twin 3 year olds started school nursery at Easter. They had attended a private nursery from 18 months and loved it there but when offered an early place at the school where I thought I wanted them to go we jumped at the chance to give them time to settle in. They are due to have another year there before reception.

It has been very difficult with DS's potty training going backwards and a lot of tears when leaving them. The hardest part for me gas been lack of feedback. At private nursery we got a daily update on their activities and a full review of progress every 2-3 months. So far at school nursery, other than the odd "DS had had a wet accident today" there has been nothing.

I was very excited therefore to receive school reports for them both when they finished term last week. I was a bit peeved when I read DS's as at one point they referred to him as another boy's name - I realise a lot of the comments will be cut and paste so am not too worried about this. However DD's report refers to her as another child's name no less than 8 times!! The name begins with the same letter but sounds nothing like her name. It also refers to her as socialising well and integrating quickly which surprises me. My concerns are :

A. Does the teacher regularly get her name wrong in class
B. Is this actually her report or does part if it belong to the other child
C. AIBU to think this is beyond sloppy as the headmaster has also signed this off. These people are in charge of my children's education,

I don't want to be "that parent" but feel the school should be aware. Shall I raise it at the start of next term or write a letter during the holidays?

I'm an EYP. I would bring it to the staff's attention. Once is acceptable when you are writing 60 plus reports but they are meant to be checked by a member of the management team and 8 times is not acceptable.
