I found head SW Hannath's claim that it took his staff 20 hours to fill in threshold forms and a further 30 hours to collect evidence difficult to believe ("Threshold angst", TES, March 30).

I am aghast that it woud take a teacher 30 hours to collect evidence of assessment etc. Surely a good teacher would have systems in place that could provide this?
