Obviously it's common at primary level, but what about Year 7? Bottle of wine for his form tutor? What do other people do?

nothing, or it'll never end!

From the parent POV, no. From the teacher POV, bring it on!grin

But seriously, no, I wouldn't start it. Save it for the end of his school career, when he's struck up good relationships with various teachers.

we get very few presents at my school but staff are thrilled to get a tin of biscuits to share at break. You may prefer to send something edible in for the staff room with a card rather than send it in with DS

We occasionally get year 11/13 parents send a box of biscuits or chocolates in with a card in september after the results which is really appreciated but nothing else usually. I don't expect anything from my form group. hth

When I was a form tutor, a fair number of my Y7 and Y8 children would bring in gifts at Christmas and end of year, but not all. They were always grateful received, especially the wine
