'End-of-term school reports to become weekly online updates' - Daily Mail.

We say ...

It is true that, as the Daily Mail reported this week, Labour ministers have called on schools to provide regular online updates so that parents can check their children's progress in school every week.

The TES has been highlighting the increasing use of online school reports since 2004. However, there is less truth to the Mail's claim that "the printed school report will soon be a thing of the past".

Pupils will continue to receive a traditional paper-and-ink report at least once a year, summarising their progress over an extended period. The regular updates are intended to supplement this report rather than replace it.
