Extracts from this document...


Report on the subject of Billy Casper being on probation On the 24th of October a meeting was held to consider whether Billy Casper had made sufficient progress to be taken of probation. The meeting took place at St. Catherine School at 4pm; Billy's subject teachers were present alongside Billy's mother. Throughout the meeting a mixture of positive and negative opinions were brought up disputing Billy's case. The meeting began with a brief introduction of all the people present. The meeting then moved on to the subject of Billy's progress at school. Mr. Farthing firstly commented on the subject, he pointed out how Billy's behaviour and attitude has improved over the last few weeks. He commented on how Billy has been showing a positive attitude towards his lessons and constantly improving at a steady rate. ...read more.


Billy's has clearly shown progress at school which is a good sign for him. The meeting subsequently moved onto the subject of Billy's Social Life. At this part of the meeting we find out about Billy's friendships, hobbies and interests. Mrs. Casper was quick to arise on this subject saying how Billy has got a new book and, how he is always reading it. Mr. Farthing commented further saying how he saw Billy train his Kestrel, claiming how he is an expert with it. Mr. Sugden then said Billy should take more interest in football rather than a book. Mr. Farthing also mentioned he noticed Billy didn't have many friends and said he is a bit of a loaner. Mrs. Casper calmly interrupted Mr. Farthing saying it isn't Billy's fault he doesn't have many friends. ...read more.


Mr. Farthing commented on how he thought Billy had family problems at home. He said that Billy had mentioned something about family problems but not in detail. Mrs Casper then rudely interrupted Mr Farthing saying there are no family problems and to stop interfering with Billy's life. By discussing Billy's family it is clear that there are family problems at home and these needs to be looked into. At this point of the meeting there was a bit of anger shown amongst the people present. In conclusion the meeting went well, although at some times it went a bit of task. From the meeting there was sufficient information gained to make a final decision on whether Billy Casper should or should not be taken of probation. I believe from the outcome of the meeting that Billy Casper had made sufficient progress to be taken of probation, although he could improve in some areas of his life. ...read more.
