“Scott is a quiet pleasant well motivated pupil who can be relied upon to carry out any task conscientiously. He displays a sensible, mature attitude to school and has the respect and friendship of his peers. He has a good rapport with adults and has a good sense of humour and sense of fun. He lacks confidence in his abilities and is a born worrier, when he has little to worry about!”
