Collecting money for staff.

    Does anyone have a policy they would like to share for collecting money for staff ? For example what is collected for, how it is collected.
    Thanks for your help.

    A policy? Please tell me this is a joke.

    No policy. We just send an email or two and the administrator collects whatever anyone wants to give.

    Somebody just takes round an envelope asking people to give whatever they want.

    I suspect that Bluelamb is referring to a practice rather than a formal policy.

    Best practice, IMO, is to set up a staffroom committee which decides on such things as the venue and cost of the Christmas staff social, collects contributions from staff for flowers for ill colleagues and gifts for colleagues who are leaving.

    I do not believe that HTs should (or be seen to) 'drive' such matters.

    I agree. An envelope in the staff room usually suffices. I occasionally offer to do the shopping but usually someone else will volunteer. In one school everyone contributed to a social fund to cover flowers for illness etc.
