It’s easy to create your own Teacher/ Parent Template for generating your Learner Observations in PDF.
The existing Parent Template does not include objective age bands.
The quickest and easiest way to do this is to download the Standard Template and modify it to suit your needs (e.g. add your own logo). You can create as many templates as you like!
PLEASE NOTE: The templates are based on Word mail merge documents. You can type in your own standard text e.g. headers, titles and add a logo. The other data (school, learner, observation details) is added from the web suite at the time of report generation by using “field” information in the template. You will see these “fields” enclosed in double angled brackets within the template e.g. <<title>>
