Present-giving 'alive in schools across the UK'
March 26 2010
The culture of present-giving is alive in UK schools, according to a new survey by the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL).
More than 90 per cent of school and college staff have received gifts, as pupils, parents or guardians want to thank them for their efforts or celebrate religious festivals.
Primary school teachers are more likely to receive gifts more than once a year (82 per cent), than secondary teachers (36 per cent), while the most common time to receive a present is at the end of the academic year (70 per cent), followed by religious occasions, such as Christmas, Eid or Hanukah (63 per cent).
According to the survey, the most popular presents among staff were personalised items, including paintings done by a student of their teacher, or hand-made jewellery and cards.
Separately, ATL recently won a Unionlearn award for boosting its members' progression and professional development.
