It's the start of the holidays and I have drunk a little wine. Many threads on this forum seem be either a) moaning at heads or b) asking advice of heads This is a thread just for me and any other fellow heads who care to add their mite, as I am in a mellow mood. The year has had its ups and downs. The next few months have their challenges lined up (Ofsted, "acadamisation" (amazing how quickly that word has sprung into existence!). The next few weeks have their allotted tasks (SEF update, office annual clear-out, etc). However, all in all it has been a good year. All in all I enjoy my job and am glad I am a headteacher.
