School report : Ding bat

A secondary school has apologised after a confidential report book which called pupils names like "ding bat" and "wally" was found lying in a street.

The booklet, produced by The Howard School for boys, in Rainham, Kent, carried a specific message on its front page - "Do not leave lying around".

It was discovered on a pavement by a shopper in Rainham.

It referred to one boy as a "ding bat" who was "away with the fairies", and another as being a "bit of a wally".

One entry also said a particular boy's mother was "quite rough".

The school said it regretted the incident and was reviewing procedures.
