Having been a HoY for many years, I'd like to thank all the parents that are kind, considerate, supportive and reasonable in their relationship and interactions with school! I value you so much and (dare I say it) you have made my job so much easier over the years. Every year some parents don't seem to realise I look after over 200 children as well as teach and hold other responsibilities in the school. When parents are patient and understanding, it makes the world of difference. Today, I met with both types of parents and I thought i'd say a massive THANK YOU to the kind who make me love my job! To those that seem to think HoY are no more than a sounding board for anything that angers you in the world, please remember that in my experience, everyone who does this job really does love and care for children.
Sorry, that's my rant over. It's been building all year and I had to get it out!
