Lost property

Lost property

It is inevitable that school uniform items are mislaid or mixed up.  The best way to ensure that your child’s belongings are not lost is to ensure all items of school uniform are clearly named. Wherever possible, named lost property will be returned to your child’s class.


Any items that are unnamed will be kept near the School Office. After we have had the items for two weeks they will be either sent to recycling or kept in school for use in emergencies e.g. when a child is sick.


Please help us in reuniting lost property with its owner by labelling all of your child's property - this includes shoes, lunchboxes and water bottles.


Check it!

Label it!

Keep it!


If your child has lost any part of their uniform and it has been labelled, please encourage them to look in their classroom and cloakroom in the first instance.  If it still cannot be found please check the lost property boxes in the main school reception area.  


Please regularly check the uniform your child brings home - it is very easy for items of uniform to get mixed up.  If this has happens please can you bring back anything you find that isn’t your child's and we will reunite it with its owner, who will probably have your child’s item!  This includes lunchboxes and water bottles.
