    I have always resigned directly to the Head - certainly not to line managers/HoDs etc.

    Agree, Head is the person with responsibility for staff employment and departure.

    and this is what I would like to do and have done previously when I had a line manager and/ or head of department, not having either makes the situation a little awkward to approach anyone within the department. Although I recognise that the ultimate letter goes to the Head, should there not usually be someone to 'discuss' or approach initially, also as a school with over 200 staff it makes it a rather impersonal 'announcement'. Not sure who to tell, or warn, within the Dept, as we are already a number of staff down - any ideas?
    thanks again,

    Just hand your letter into your head, I find it's best to hand deliver it, but if you don't want to then that's fine, then just inform the rest of your team that that is what you have done. You don't need to discuss it with anyone before hand!!!!
