What should a primary school student report look like?

Hekia Parata said today that parents LOVE National Standards.  This is clearly not true, given the huge number of people speaking up against them.

But here’s what I want to know:

– what DO parents want to see on school reports?

– what does a comprehensive and informative school report look like?

– have you seen one that you thought was a good example that others might like to consider using?



reportcardI want to collect a bank of GOOD report layouts that inform about the whole child and their understanding of the wide, rich curriculum.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to send me in photos of school  report layouts you like.

You can blank out or cover child’s names and the school name or I can do that for you.

Please email them to:



I will ensure the photos are edited for privacy and then share them on here, so people can discuss what they do/do not want to see on a child’s report card.

Now go get your reports, photograph them and send them to me with comments!


Thank you,Dianne
