  KS1/KS2 Statements (Elementary)

 KS 3/4 (Years 7 -11) statements 

 KS5 (Years 12/13)  

Even if your subject/age range is not present, many of these comments can easily be edited for your use.  If you do use any of the comments, please repay the compliment by emailing some of yours to me, which I will then add to this page.  I am more than happy to credit you and/or your school.

The comment files are in two formats:
Current Format: Report Assistant (tra) files: Those links in shown in bold are in the  'tra' format and can be downloaded and opened by the Report Assistant complete with grouped statements and headings.

Old Format: Plain Text files (txt): The remaining non bold comments are in  plain text format - the text will be loaded into your browser if you click on the comment -  use your browser's 'back' button to return here.  Either copy them and paste into one of the Report Assistant comment boxes (but don't forget to save) or right click on the link and select 'Save Target as' - it can then be opened by the Report Assistant in a single comment box (without headings).
