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! grin

brilliant! grin

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!

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.
