Appendix 5.2:

Appendix 5 - Confidentiality in Placement Reports.
Appendix 5.1 - Placement Reports.
2. Placement-related assignments.

2.1 Probably without exception, it is unnecessary for an individual, group, agency or setting to be named in a placement-related assignment, and so in all instances their identity should be withheld. The principles outlined in section 1 above should be used when referring to such people or settings in all such assignments.

2.2 Similarly, the only name that should appear in assignment comments that are submitted by a practice teacher to the route should be that of the practice teacher her/himself. All other information contained in such comments should be dealt with in accordance with the principles set out in 1 above.
