Teacher’s traditionally get given gifts at the end of the school year and also increasingly at Christmas time too. It is especially common to buy teacher gifts in primary schools where generally you only have one teacher to buy for and maybe a teaching assistant too. You may buy a gift for secondary school teachers after your exams if there is one or two who you feel has gone above and beyond and have supported you to do the best you can. A little gift to show your appreciation will definitely go down well I’m sure. You shouldn’t feel pressured into buying your teachers a gift just because everyone else is and always only buy something you can afford and if the teacher has been particularly supportive of your child. It can become an expensive business if you have more than one child all wanting to buy gifts for their teacher and teaching assistant twice a year.
