Report-writing resources for primary and secondary teachers

Now the summer term is underway, writing pupil reports is creeping to the top of teachers to-do lists. Reflecting upon the learning journey and the progress students have made throughout the year is a rewarding process for both student and teacher but can be a time-consuming task to nestle into your everyday workload. To support you when writing student reports this term, we have put together a handy selection of resources to help you get started.

report comment bank

Comments I have collected over the years all in one place. I cannot take credit for them at all - they are just ones I have found on the internet and copied onto a word document. Very helpful when writing reports!

Comments for Report Writing

I have compiled these statements together with the other teachers in my year group. We have covered Speaking and Listening, Writing, Reading, Maths, Social Skills and Behaviour. I hope that they are useful for any other Key Stage One teacher. Other topics covered: Paperwork

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.

Please note this spreadsheet will not run on Mac versions of Excel, it will only run on PC versions of , due to incompatibility issues between Microsoft Office on the 2 different platforms.
