Please keep your copy of the report at home and bring it with you to the parents’ meeting.

2.  What does a Full Report contain?

Each subject will include:

            - a brief outline of the work covered during the year
            - comments on strengths and weaknesses
            - suggestions for improvement
            - an assessment of commitment and attainment
