* All schools, primary and secondary, must issue a written report for each child at least once a year with brief particulars of achievement in every activity or subject

* At the end of each key stage, national curriculum andor exam results must be reported too, for the individual child and for his or her year group

* During the workload agreement negotiations, teacher unions said reports should never be more than 400 words per pupil, per year

* Their demand was rebuffed; instead the DfES says reports should be "crisp, concise and easy to understand"

* A secondary school in Essex gave parents a choice between reading reports online or requesting a hard copy. Only 1 in 20 chose the traditional paper report
