Hi Everyone

My child has been placed on report. I have phoned to find out what "being placed on report" means but cannot get info from the school. I have tried again today in person but I have been told that the person responsible for placing her on report ,i.e. the acting head of year, is busy. Can anyone explain to me what "being placed on report" means, also what is the criteria for being placed on report.
Her grades are on target or above in all but 2 of her 14 subjects. she is in year 9.

Many many thanks

Usually being on report is for behaviour not academics. The criteria will vary from school to school. It usually involves having a report card that each teacher has to sign at the end of their lesson to say they've behaved themselves.

Could be behaviour or punctuality. Student will havevto get it signed / commented on / graded by every teacher at the end of a lesson.

In the school I work in and the one DS goes to there are levels of reports. So I think white, green and red (red being most serious).

Usually the reports have to be unitialled every lesson by the teacher and then signed at the end of the day by the HOY and parent.

It's not for grades.. its for behavior or lateness and so on. They have to have the teacher sign it at the end of the lesson and tick the boxes to how they've behaved and they give it to you each day to look at and sign so you know how they have conducted themselves that day.

Surely your child will know why? What did they say?

*sorry, what did she say!

gamerchick Thu 22-May-14 19:50:45

*behaviour I knew that didn't look right.

we have three varieties - form tutor report, for general effort, attitude etc; effort report, for a student whose behaviour is OK but who is 'coasting'; & green/amber/red report for a student whose behavour is disruptive.

In each case the report is signed off by each teacher throughout the day, then seen by HOY at home time. Failure to get a target score = detention.

It's generally a cumulative thing for us - a general pattern of poor effort or behaviour has emerged & been 'referred' by different members of staff.

Could be a number of reasons. In our school

Completeing work
Subject report-just for specific lessons

Some reports will have targets set by HOY/form tutour/HOD. Others will be general.

I dont think you need to panic. But I also think you did the right thing contacting school. I'd want to know what the issues where if it were my child.

Seems daft that she doesn't know? I'd take that to mean she is hiding something pretty big confused.

BellaVita Thu 22-May-14 19:57:09

It can be for all manner of of reasons.

The rules on the report could be

1. Arrive to lessons on time
2. To carry out the work that is asked of them straight away
3. Be polite at all times

BellaVita Thu 22-May-14 19:58:22

Me too P3ppa, I would wonder what she is hiding. She should have brought it home with her.

The acting head of year has decided this course of action. I feel completely guilty bec there were a number of things that were happening ut as she was "acting" head of year i didnt nip it in the bud.

This acting head of year has let it be known the the girls that she hates the group.
whilst in class they were repeatedly ignored by one of the newer members of the teaching staff. my child asked her about it
the group are always pulled up re the lenght of the skirts the must be on theknee my chils skirt is 2 inches above her friend is about 3 inches or so. however we can only get the skirts from 2 shops and my child is 5ft 9 and her friend nearly 6 foot we cannot get longer skirts. meanwhile in the school you can see streams of other children walking past with skirts JUST covering their behinds. it sounds to me like they are being singled out. other childrens behaviour in the school i can talk about further however they are not and never are on report
i think they are being singled out.

What are the consequences of refusing to allow my child to be on report

Your child could be placed in IE?

How do you know the other students haven't been told about their skirts?

BellaVita Thu 22-May-14 20:13:57

Or excluded.

On report as far as I know is usually for bad behaviour or for missing lessons. Not usually for poor acacdemic achievement. It usuallyl means the teacher has to sign a sheet saying the child attended the lesson and behaved. Your DC will know why.

ednamode Thu 22-May-14 20:15:11

what is I.E.

Are you sure you are not focusing on the fact that you don't like this member of staff rather than the fact your child has misbehaved?

WhereTheWildlingsAre Thu 22-May-14 20:18:07

I can't see that you can refuse.

I think you need to ask for a meeting to discuss it though. There seems to be a lot of miscommunication here.

And I am afraid I an not entirely buying the 'my daughter is a victim' thing either. Are you sure she is behaving?

ednamode Thu 22-May-14 20:19:40

This is serious. if she is guilty of bad behaviour then it must be dealt with however based on the above plus many other issues that i am now finding out she is guilty of standing up for herself when this school has singled her and a friend out. So I guess i have to make an official complaint.

Email the school and ask exactly what you have asked here.

I'm sure they wouldn't put a nice quiet tall girl on report just for the length of her skirt.

WhereTheWildlingsAre Thu 22-May-14 20:22:39

Yes, but before you complain, you should try to set up a meeting and find out exactly what she is on report for. How do you know there is not a valid reason for it otherwise?

ravenAK Thu 22-May-14 20:25:08

You can't refuse for her to be put on report.

If she's a student at the school, they are entitled to apply their behaviour policy.

She won't be on report for skirt length. That's not going to vary from lesson to lesson!

BellaVita Thu 22-May-14 20:27:34

Internal Exclusion.

How do you know she is being singled out?

Itsfab Thu 22-May-14 20:29:33

Is she being mature about standing up for herself or has she been rude?
