Rachel Marsden – Mr Brennan’s class 1987
Look at my old school report.
Whilst my Mum and Dad were having a clear out at their house, they came across my old school report, the same week my son Jake also brought his school report home.
My son’s school report was spread over 4 pages with different sections and levels achieved for each subject, targets set for the next term and even a message from the Headteacher with a bright smiley face sticker at the bottom.
In comparison it made mine look so simple and made me think just how easy it was for Teachers to put a report together back in 1987.I feel for teachers now with so much red tape and set targets they have to include.
What is wrong with the simple, honest and personal report from the 1980’s, I would much prefer that style to the new computerised reports that all our children bring home now from school.
What do you think, are old reports the way to go?
