We've had a quite good report though some very high predicted grades weren't met, then on Tuesday presented with a mainly very good report-but right at the top in a subject an absolutely stinking indictment of dd-a list of all sorts of failings- not a word of encouragement, next steps, good luck, etc. I had no warning since last year, Same teacher wasn't happy and we took steps to improve (extra tuition from mum and dad, refusal of a school trip to allow more study at home, dad saw teacher at parent eve as I was very ill in hospital)-all seemed ok as far as we knew this year-now with school nearly out we get this. It's a teacher who is leaving and a subject she is not surprisingly quitting for GCSE, but I feel completely deflated.
I feel I can't trust the school or dd to tell me the truth. They go on and on about growth Mindsets, targets, blah blah, but none of us could fathom out what they wanted in this subject-tried really hard but always given bad mark and told it was wrong-but not how-she was too ashamed to show us-now it's clear she has been singled out by a spiteful person - and I'm left feeling where to go from here? Will I get another horrendous report after the fact instead of what she is capable of in GCSEs? What is the point of these reports? Maybe I should send her to boarding school since I am unable to do anything with her or get the school to do it.
Is it normal to get only one report a year? Other than termly computerised scores for attendance behaviour organisation- almost all perfect by the way, and levels, which were going the right way.
