My DD7 and I have had a tough few years and she's been at three schools in three years. We are finally settled and she has been at her current school since October 2014. She went from a private school with 13 children in her class to an inner city RC school with 30 kids in her class. At the beginning of the year she was struggling with her spelling and maths, all the school moves, different teaching methods, plus house move, plus moving to a new city, going from a two-parent family to a one-parent family.

But I got her report yesterday and I felt my heart burst with pride. She's working at the level that she should be with a few 'above'. But she's been commended for being polite, well-mannered (although 'chatty' at times!) Am just proud of how she's coped with everything we've been through.

Sure she sometimes gets 'th' and 'f' mixed up ('mummy it's fings not things!') and still sometimes count on her fingers, she may not be exceeding all her levels but I couldn't be happier with my average child.

Anyone else want to celebrate the joys of your average kids with me!

Mines leaving year 1 as mr average 1B! Flat bang in the middle.
His effort was very good the whole way through, so for that I couldn't be happier.

I'm with you on this one. My 7 year old has had a rough time of school with a change due to serious bullying in yr R that left us with a small she'll of a girl.

Her report shows us she is finall coming out of her shell, she is confident, has friends and most importantly she goes to school happily. From not reaching any yr R goals at the end of yr1 but being a happier child she has blossomed this year and hit all her expected targets and even exceeded in a couple. I'll take that!

I like 'flat bang in the middle'! And well done to your little girl Pikkewyn she sounds like an absolute star, it's lovely when they actually enjoy going to school.

It's the "average" child who has the brilliant personality and social skills!!! Well done to your daughter, you should rightly be very proud...

my daughters report said she was comfortable with her individuality - I was chuffed to pieces smile
