Under the new assessment governance and using feedback from staff, we updated our end of year report format. We used this format for all years.

The colours represent the colours we use in school to help map pupils progress - these colours are also shared with pupils and parents so they can monitor progress too.

The language also reflects that used by the DfE and STA.

Please feel free to download and adapt as you wish.

Report Writing programme

Save time and effort writing reports. An end of year report writer that allows you to quickly create pupil reports simply by clicking on a series of user modifiable comments. Comments are organised into 9 sections (opening, behavioural, progress, strengths, weaknesses, closing and 3 user defined categories with 18 comments in each section). Comments automatically update to insert pupil names and to match gender specific pronouns (he/she, his/her etc). Once assembled the comments can be copied and pasted into your own report packages and a file containing all the reports for your class set can be created. Suitable for all teachers at all key stages through suitable modification of the comments in the comment banks. This is Version 2 which scrolls even faster between comment categories.
This is an Excel file which uses macros to run, read the help sheet in the file to enable macros.

Report Writing Comments Bank - general attitude, effort & contribution comments for reports

I hope this makes report writing easier for someone. Please review.

This is a Report Writing Comments Bank for general contribution, effort and attitude comments, for example,
'He has the ability and commitment to excel in many subjects.'
'He consistently and actively contributes knowledge, opinions, and skills to a group.'
'He is a charming and helpful member of the class who can always be relied upon to carry out any task conscientiously.'
'He is an open-minded and flexible thinker.'
'He needs encouragement to take a more active part in class discussion.'

The statements start with general report starter comments and attributes that could be commented on in general reports. Next, statements about attitude and contribution are grouped from very positive and positive to less positive comments.
