Thank you Guest55, very useful. I have never been one of those to badger the teachers at every opportunity, I waited for the planned parent teacher evening to ask about her progress last year, primarily because we had more worrying issues in hand, but the feedback was, and still is, very restrained! She's doing fine,...but relative to what? That is what's frustrating. She ended Reception bringing home the same pink band books for months on end, yet gets pushed upto green on her first assessment back into Year 1?? Something must have been amiss somewhere!
Yesterday I spoke to her class teacher,...and I got the same feedback, she's doing fine. I appreciate it is early days, and she's already missed some school, but relative to the feedback I hear my friends with kids in prep school getting, it all seems very uninformative! It is almost as if they are keen not to say too much, for fear of some playground parent competition running rife! Afterall, that 'slow animal' group already gets a good enough gossip as it is!
