Do teachers by gifts when they leave?

Just that really. I'm leaving my school at the end of this term and moving onto better things.....much better things! I've been at my school for 10 years but had a really awful year this year which resulted in me resigning! I was just wondering what people usually do. Do you buy a present for the school when you leave? I was thinking of taking some cakes in on my last day and maybe a little something like sweets or something for my class. I was also thinking of buying a bottle of wine for the TA's in my class. I just wasn't sure if that was enough or if teachers get something more for the school as a whole. Thank you for reading grin

If you've been there 10 years you must know what other leaving teachers have done in your school??

Ive always given gift to immediate close colleagues - but not to the school.

No I don't actually because only 1 other teacher has left my school in the time I've been there and he left 5 years ago so I can't remember what he did! Lots of support staff have left though especially since the new headteacher arrived shock

I tend to bring cake in for my department.

Any genuine friends from work (that sounds horrible but I mean vs work friends I like but also but don't socialise with out of work) I'll see anyway after leaving.

Cakes in staffroom, sweets for class, bottle for cleaner and TA.

Do you want to buy anybody a gift? If you don’t feel like giving out anything then don’t do it.

If you are a teacher I really hope your spelling mistake in the title was accidental 😳

I got the nursery I left 12 boxes of hankies and 10 Julia Donaldson books. I gave nothing to the main school. Not even cake after the way they treated me. The nursery staff were awesome though x

At our place we do a lunch buffet bring something each for close work friends.
