Anyone been to a parents evening and realised the teacher doesn't have a clue what your child is actually like, as they glance briefly at the scores on their sheet?

I think you will find that DFE safe guarding requirements prevent teachers from knowing who their pupils are.

Usually the teacher not knowing who your child is is a good sign, to be brutally honest.

Does it ever occur to you that maybe you haven't got much idea what your child is actually like either?

I defy anyone to get to know 400 students, when you only see most of them one hour a week and you spend that teaching them Key Performance Indicators, taking a register, setting and collecting homework, checking through books, completing health and safety records, completing KPI data sheets, marking books, stickering books, etc etc etc. Anyone who thinks there is time to get to know students sadly misunderstands the state of education today. Teachers get to know the exceptionally good and the exceptionally bad students, not necessarily when they arrive but over a period of time. The rest, mostly you know their face and personality. But in any case you don't need to know their name to comment on their performance, their results etc.
