    The teacher using those grown up words is out of whack. I'd meet with her to try and figure out where it's coming from and what her expectations of a 6 year old are.

    Your child should not be marked down at 6 for not knowing about religion, that's absurd.

    At the same time where there's smoke there may be fire. Perhaps your child is not doing as well as what you thought/the teacher has valid concerns (even if she's done a shizen housen job of expressing them). Hopefully you can get to the bottom of things with a meeting.

    Good luck

    That is far from appropriate!

    Is there any chance that the bullying is affecting him at school?
    Could he be withdrawing from learning due to the issues with teachers and other students?

    The problem is that the teacher (and everybody else in this town) has a problem with DH and myself. We are not from here and because we do not take part in their drunken parties, domestic violence, fighting at the pub - yes even the women, wife swapping etc...we do not fit in We are the kind of people who live nice quiet lives and do the best for our kids (believe it or not that's why we're here - to be able to achieve financial security). DH is seriously bullied at work - but he can't do anything. Sometimes I wish they would all just leave us alone

    He seems to be doing well - I have sat in on the morning session (reading) quite regularly this term and he's been doing well - his teacher has seen that. He's still getting alot of trouble from the other kids but from what I've seen and heard he is doing well

    Move.

    If this is going on then it's not healthy for your family. Bullying is unacceptable and something needs to be done about it.

    Wow the comments are awful, awful comments I would be taking them to the principal and then further to the education department!! I am appalled - disgusting way to describe any child!

    As for the grades with the new national curriculum a C grade is what majority of students will now achieve - it means they are meeting the benchmarks for their grade, a B is that they are above benchmarks and to receive an A means they are working probably a year to two ahead of their year level. The perimeters for a C grade are fairly wide so majority of students will fall into this category!

    If I were in your situation, I'd move my family to another town/city.

    Those are not words that should be used to described children. What a weird report.

    I hope you guys can get out of that horrible pace sooner than later. Sounds like none of you are happy

    I would view those words as insults and be extremely annoyed if anyone said that about my child.

    I wouldn't bother with the teacher, and go straight to the principal. If that failed- I would complaining to the education department. I also would consider moving my child to another school.

    Even if your child was doing *that* badly at school (though it sounds like the teacher is just bleh), then one would have to wonder why the teacher has not contacted you to let you know to work with you to arrange some additional at home to improve his results.

    Good luck...
