Homework doing your head in? Read wish-I'd-known tips from other parents on Mumsnet's Education pages.
should I ? ds leaving this week for secondary - do heads get over looked /
Definitely if he is leaving for secondary.I often feel that the school receptionist and HT get missed out and the receptionist cried last year when I got her a present.I have got the HT a bottle of red congratulating her on the Ofsted result we got this year and the receptionist will get homemade banana cake as she told me it was her favourite!
have a small thing and a card I could give her and maybe some chocs for the office ladies ?
brilliant! I think that sometimes just what you write in the card can mean a lot to them....doesnt really matter what you buy.
I was talking to our Head yesterday - he said the one bad thing about being Head is no box of presents at the end of the year! And he spent an hour in the stocks having wet sponges thrown at him at the Fair on Saturday!
I always get presents for the three school office staff and the head. They really appreciate it because nobody thinks of them and they do work incredibly hard to keep the school running smoothly.
I gave ds's head a small pack of fancy brownies and a kiss today. He seemed really surprised but I think he deserved them!

I would like to buy a pressie for DC's headteacher - possibly a book about how to find another job!!!
As a teacher, I can assure you a card is plenty. Don't put yourself out, unless you want to. A token gift is fine.
