Actually just want to add - is the work marked with comments but without a grade? If so then I feel differently (though if this does not happen in other lessons it suggests the school does not have a coherent marking policy, which it should, or that the teacher is not following the school policy, which she should.)
Thanks for your reply phaedra - What really is annoying is the work isnt even returned! The school has sent home a copy of how work is marked and how to interpret grades - all other teachers have stuck to the school policy. My dd is beginning to anoy the teacher too as she has asked on several occasions when she will get her work back!
We have a grade sheet coming home next week and i will be interested to see what this teacher gives her. She has done two assesment pieces in class which have been marked so i am presuming that this work will be used to give dd a grade - The other anoying thing is that this teacher gives out quite a lot of homwork too! Dd always - up till now has completed it to at good standard. One of her friends already is not doing the work, i know the day dd dosnt that the teacher will actually mark it and ask dd where hers is
