School Reports

So it's that time of year and the school reports are in, we have a poll running on rewards for a good report.

Do you reward?

Mine always got excellent reports through primary (though I think most kids do!) but I can't remember rewarding them specifically for them apart from a big cuddle and a 'well done'. 

And here is a guide to understanding what teacher really means!

I did much the same as you Ursh, well done & cuddles, oh & occasional MaccyD's. I get termly reports now for both of them as they are at secondary school.

YD's got a 6a on her ICT which smashed through her target of a 5c for this term. I'm always praising them for doing their very best. The school are very good recognising their achievements & they get loads of praise, vivo points, extra trips.. which is where my reward goes to the spending money...lol

DD has just had a good report (and SATs results) for year 6 but 'rewards' tend to be in the form of tea at pizza hut or similar, 

Like sparkle, ds's high school send out a termly 'tracker' showing effort and expected/achieved grades, which are usually good, but I haven't seen an end of year report yet for him.

I do not.

I do, however, reward exam achievement.

Up until recently, there has been precious little to reward. However, this term's report was excellent, and she has done so well overall, that I am going to reward her, by making up the shortfall in her iPad fund. She's been saving since her birthday in October, and is still rather short of what she needs, but I am going to pay the rest at the end of term.

With money, Ursh! Filthy lucre! And I tell him beforehand as well. Nothing like a good carrot.

I don't think it makes much impact at the moment... and the tests he has are few and far between, but I suspect it will when he gets to GCSE level... in fact he's already devised a sliding scale (so much per A, so much per Cool which I have agreed to, so if he does especially well I shall have to take out a loan.

I used to buy DD a toy, or similar, when she was at primary school (I remember staggering out of Lorimers with a huge Care Bear, lol), but not since she went to secondary school.  

If I thought she was motivated by money, I would probably have a "£X for an A*, £Y for an A" scheme for her GCSEs, but at the moment at least she has almost everything she needs/wants (apart from a b***** dog), and isn't spurred on by the thought of cash. Or indeed by anything, if I'm honest.

My pair had great reoprts, so got a toy each out of my stash.

Would you have given one a toy without the other, Fredd, if one had got a good report and one not so good?

Good question - and probably not...Hopefully I'll never have to think about that one!
