Further to comment below – I want to have the maths page appear with the blue squares so the B&W version doesn’t work. Is there anyway this can be changed?

Is it possible that the red lines for underlining and ruling off could be removed or (ideally) changed to black?

Hi there,
I love that you have also made an editable version available. Would it be possible to have the ruled up lines and information set out on these editable documents in the same format as your sample above. I like the original design you have made but only want to make slight changes it to such as the heading and date. Rather than recreate all the lines etc.
Thank you!

Hi would it be possible to have a copy that doesn’t say RED pen. Perhaps just rule.

Would it be possible to have these available in word documents so we could add our own expectations? Thanks
