I am retiring at the end of this term after more than 16 years in total of headship. I have been looking forward to this moment for so long and yet as the time approaches I find I am increasingly sad and tearful . I am trying to work out how much Covid has impacted on this in that we are unable to go through the usual motions to mark the event - or is this a natural response? It looks like they are planning a presentation in the playground which I’m not sure about but staff are keen to do. I feel like running for the hills if I’m honest ! I’d be interested to know what other leavers are doing .
