Sensible grade by teacher of French is put up (5-6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

level-headed

Here is my best explanation:

'sensible' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'grade by teacher of french is put up' is the subsidiary indication.

'grade' becomes 'level' ('level' can be a synonym of 'grade'**).

'by' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'teacher' becomes 'head'.

'of french' becomes 'de'.

'is put up' says the letters should be written backwards.

'de' backwards is 'ed'.

'level'+'head'+'ed'='levelheaded'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for level-headed that I've seen before include "Sensible", "Calm and sensible" and "Showing good judgement".)
