What made you proud in you DCs school report (that was NOT to do with academic achievement)?

Each year there is a thread here where people post the things they are most proud about in their children's reports, which has NOTHING to do with grades and academic achievement. It is always my favourite thread. We haven't had reports yet ( I am worried my DD won't have anything positive on a personal level because the teacher doesn't really know or understand her). So, I was wondering what you all had for those positive proud parent moments. Only rule is it can't be about academic achievement.

That she has a lovely sense of humour that she likes to share with the class.

That she loves telling the teacher about books she's read to suggest them as class texts.

My DC are older now but I loved to see the word "enthusiastic". It used to appear all the time about DD1.

My DS moved school recently due to prolonged bullying and it has massively impacted on his self-esteem and confidence to socialise sad

I was so proud of him when I read that he had actively enquired about and volunteered to wear the green vest and man the befriending bench "because he wished there was something like that at his old school to help him and wanted to make sure that no one else felt alone and frightened like him". smile

Y1 DD had a very average report, academic-wise, but every single comment mentions her attitude, enthusiasm and perseverance, and her ability to resist joining in when her best friend (the class clown) starts winding up.

She got pancakes for breakfast after that. Was dead proud.

flowersflowersflowers THESE are the things that life is about! Thank you all for sharing! These things are what make our DC so wonderful. I so hope that there are some bits of these in my children's reports when they come!!!

That my son is well thought of by his peers due to his kind and helpful nature

Not on her report but I met one of my DDs teachers for the first time last week, DD has been at the school for about 6/7 weeks and I am due to start there as a teacher in

When I met the teacher (who I will actually be working with in sept) we got on really well, just clicked and she told me of the moment she realised that DD was the daughter of the 'new teacher' and said to me "I just knew you would be nice because your DD is absolutely lovely, so polite and kind with a great sense of humour and it feels like she's been in the class since the beginning".

I was so genuinely touched about the compliment to DD and just felt sooooo proud of her that she was a shining beacon for our family. Especially as we have had a huge upheaval in recent months (relocating from one end of the country to the other!).

That ds1 brightens up his teacher's day (he's not easy but his teacher this year really gets him) and that ds2 is getting more confident - he also got the highest mark for effort in every subject.

They are very different but have both made me super proud with their reports this year in different ways. smile

He has impeccable manners, is sensitive and honest and has made a lot of friends because of it. (DS(Y2)).

"I will miss her bright, smiling face and lovable character but I know she will make friends [at her new school] very quickly " (DD (YR)).

So very proud of them both.

"To be commended for his effort and enthusiasm. He has worked hard, gained confidence and enjoyed his final year in Key Stage One"

As a teacher, it is such a pleasure to see that parents want to hear about more than academics. I try so hard to ensure thar every child has a genuine comment that has nothing to do with their grades!

RJnomore1 Thu 06-Jul-17 22:32:46

One of dd2s teachers wrote that she was a lovely pupil to have in class which made me very sniffly.

willdoitinaminute Thu 06-Jul-17 22:36:28

DS has just finish yr7 and one teacher commented that he always thanked her for the lesson on leaving the classroom. I asked him if he did this with every lesson and he said he thanked all his teachers...if he liked them!

"Minisilverdale puts the colour in the rainbow, she can play with friends but is equally independent to play alone, normally to make grand plans of mischief. She needs firm boundaries but only because she wants to explore the limits of everything. Minisilverdale you are lovely and if I was 5 I'd want to be your friend"

Paraphrased, I ADORE our reception teacher but she's leaving before DD3 goes sad

WhenTheDragonsCame Thu 06-Jul-17 22:37:40

DD3s teacher wrote that she has a very individual personality and lots of character. She then went on to write 3 lines about how she has enjoyed teaching DD3 this year and that she is sure she will shine as well next year.

iamUberA Thu 06-Jul-17 23:00:46

That she is always kind and looking to help children and teachers.

"A fantastic and flamboyant personality" in today's year 6 report grin

Fab39ish Fri 07-Jul-17 23:08:23

Exemplary behavior

catkind Fri 07-Jul-17 23:21:48

My favourite so far was DS's self-evaluation
"I want to get beter at speling"

Haven't got this year's yet.

I LOVE this! The thought of my child ever being bullied breaks my heart so for you to read this about your DS must have felt amazing. What a mature & kind hearted boy, hope he enjoys the rest of his school years!

Haven't got this year's report yet, but last year, my not so sporty ds got above average for "*effort*" in PE, which made me really proud.

Tomorrowillbeachicken Sat 08-Jul-17 18:14:37

Not had his report this year but most proud that he made some huge strides in basic skills that most children can do at three or four (ds has sensory and motor control issues that means this was very hard for him) and that he will play with anyone in his class with no issues. He accepts everyone and loves everyone.

bangingmyheadoffabrickwall Sat 08-Jul-17 21:25:33

My DS aged 5 apparently plans his tasks and plans how to tackle a problem rather than apply a 'hit and miss' approach - I loved that! His teacher knows my little boy very well! He has always been an observer and a thinker and he is very analytical.

DD (Y4) Teacher comments in a nutshell " Delightful girl, considerate, kind, trustworthy, polite, always smiling and cheerful and an excellent role model for her peers and younger pupils"
Cried my eyes out! Means so much more than the assessment page of the report.
