The school has an enormous amount of lost property handed in each
week. In order to help us deal with
this, please could you ensure that you label your child’s possessions and as
much equipment as possible. The label needs to include at least a surname (preferably
their full name and tutor group) in order to be successfully reunited with your
child; Please do not just use their initials.
We endeavour to return named items of lost property to students as quickly
as possible. If it is not named, we will hold it for a reasonable amount of
time to see if someone comes forward to claim it. However we cannot hold items
indefinitely and any unnamed items which we have held for a long time are
eventually disposed of.
Therefore, if your child has lost their pencil case, jumper or coat
etc, then please send them to the Student Services office as soon as possible
to see whether the item has been handed in, and ask them to keep checking over
the next week or so to see if the item has turned up. There are two boxes
outside the Student Services office which contain property that has been found during
the course of the current week. Students can access these boxes at any time to search
for lost items themselves.
After a week, any unnamed and unclaimed items are locked in a cupboard which
students can access by asking a member of staff in Student Services. These items will be held at Student Services
for as long as possible before being disposed of. Please be assured that we do our best to reunite lost property with its
owner as we appreciate the cost involved in replacing school uniform and
Students should not carry large amounts of money or bring valuable
electronic items to school, as students’ possessions are not covered by the
school’s insurance policy. If they lose a valuable item (eg a watch, phone or
money, etc) they will need to report it to Mrs Capel-Davies, the Headteacher’s
PA . All found items of value are held
in the PA’s Office.
