Budget’s School Report


While Budget understands the basics of arithmetic, Budget displays a concerning lack of imagination and application in this area. Mathematics involves more than simple subtraction. More effort required!


Budget really struggles with this topic, but this is a result of the disruptive influences in his class. I have tried to separate Budget from his best friend Neo, but they do everything together, and the moment I turn my back they are sitting together again making trouble in class. I don’t hold out much hope of an improvement while Budget and his friend Mr Lib remain inseparable.


Budget displays a poor grasp of this topic. Budget’s project on the Great Depression was a terrific disappointment, and showed a profound lack of understanding of the subject. Budget will have to put more effort in next term if he is not to repeat the same mistakes.

Religious studies

Budget’s dedication to this subject is impressive. If I have one criticism, it is that Budget tends to get carried away during class discussions and refuses to listen to the points of view of others. Budget must learn to critically examine his own religious beliefs.


Budget approaches this subject with enthusiasm, but he struggles with using real world evidence to test a hypothesis. He often writes his results down without even testing to see whether his theory is correct. On the occasions that I point out the error of his ways he becomes moody and sulky and tells me I know nothing about the subject. A difficult student who needs to work on his attitude.

Physical Education

Budget is a sluggish student who shows no enthusiasm or energy, and must be coaxed into making even the tiniest effort. His attitude is all wrong. He is something of a braggart, repeatedly telling all of his peers how fast he is, even though when challenged to a race he always finds an excuse to back out. A sore ankle, or bad weather, or a sick Greek uncle, there’s always a reason. I shall not be sad to see the last of this Budget!


Where do I begin? I don’t normally say this, but I suspect Budget would have been better off avoiding English altogether.
