You'd better watch out!

A press release has just arrived from a company well known to teachers and parents alike. School Stickers was launched in October 2000 (by a teacher) producing a huge selection of personalised stickers, postcards and certificates used to reward good behaviour and achievement.

It saves us (the teachers) writing endlessly and hand-achingly on pupils' work. It gives the children some instant and attractive feedback on what they've done. And as many of the stickers come pre-printed with names (well done Kevin, good work Tarquin or even try a little harder Tabitha)... it allows the company to calculate (for Santa?) the naughtiest and nicest girls and boys names. Or rather, the names of the nicest and naughtiest boys and girls. 

Yes! By dint no doubt of some stock-control system or ordering algorithm the company has just announced that Jacob, Daniel, Thomas, James and Adam are the names of the best behaved boys in 2014, whilst Joseph, Cameron, William, Jake and Joshua have a month to improve their behaviour.

Amy, Georgia, Emma, Charlotte and Grace are the names of the best behaved girls but Ella, Bethany, Eleanor, Olivia and Laura all need to be especially good in December.

It is, however, only the ‘draft’ list.

Kids, you still have a month to improve your behaviour!

I wonder where Charlie's name appears..?
