... or so my DDS school report says.There is an attendance sheet with 'comments' and one of the comments says 'xxx on her own at home whilst off sick' She absolutely was not left home alone (she is 10.5) she was left with an 18 yr old sibling.
I am very annoyed thios is on her records.How hav they come to this decision.What can i do about this misinformation?I can prove adullt sibling was off school on a study day.

I don't understand why that would be on a report, even if they had noted it - presumably as she had mentioned something about her Mum/Dad not being there for some reason when she went back - .
I would go and ask them why it's on a report form, and, why they didn't mention it at the time if they had concerns.

I did what you did and left my 10 year old occasionally with her 18 year old sister.
Ask the school how that has come about. Perhaps your DD said to them that her mum was not there, but didn't say that her 18 year old sister was. So they just assumed (obviously wrongly) that she was left home alone.
Tell them it didn't happen, you don't like seeing inaccuracies on record and would like it to be corrected.
