What would constitute as a very good report?
Which phrases would you use the most, to describe progress made and describe child itself?
If child in question had a very good year, would you played it down little bit (words and phrases used)?
If child did not have very good year would you buff it up a bit and make it look better?
I am trying to decode end of R year report, no EYFS givenconfused

If a child had a very good year I would says so and if they had a bad year I wouldn't sugar coat it parents need truthful reports.

Thanks mrz, so there is no really need for decoding it as per say, I should just read it and take it for what it is.
It is a very good reportblush, maybe in places too good (lot of superlatives) and it is also very personal report, even our little one weaknesses are not mentioned in great detail, but a rather lot of emphasis on her strengths and her personality.
Two things that our daughter needs a bit more help with and we are aware of it were only briefly mentioned, teacher words (but she will achieve those in no time, given her ability and hard working ethics)
What do you make of it?

Personally I would like to think the teacher doesn't see the two things as a major problems and that her strengths outweigh her small weaknesses.
