School seeks reports proof-reader

A school is looking to employ a proof-reader to check the work of its teachers

A school is looking to recruit a proof reader to check for mistakes in teachers' reports.

Northgate High School in Ipswich, Suffolk, posted an advert for the position on its website, saying responsibilities would include correcting "spelling mistakes, poor or missing punctuation, incorrect capitalisation" and improving "poor grammar".

The advert reads: "The school reports to parents on a regular basis about how well their child is progressing at school.

"The post holder will check and amend the electronic reports to ensure they are well-written and complete before being released to parents."

The part-time job will also include helping staff whose reports need "extensive correcting by giving them feedback on their report writing and tactfully suggesting strategies to help them improve".

Headteacher David Hutton told the Ipswich Star: "Our examination results year on year demonstrate that Northgate employs very high-calibre teaching staff.

"Between them they produce literally thousands of well-written comments each year that keep parents informed about the progress of their children.

"Making a final quality check prior to publication merely indicates the high level of professionalism we strive to achieve."
