Lost Property

Lost Property

When educational materials are found around the school they are always returned to the appropriate department. Any queries about missing educational materials should be made to the appropriate head of department.

Items of clothing (uniform or PE kits) are brought to the lost property store. If the items have names in them, then we will try to return the items to the relevant child. After two attempts to return the property to the child we will inform the parent. We have had some incidents where a pupil (or parent) does not accept that the item is their property even when it seems to have their child’s name in it.

Unnamed items and refused items are kept in our lost property store for 6 months. We dispose of unclaimed property to charity.

To reclaim lost property: please phone reception and leave details of what is missing. We will then search our lost property and see if we can find an item which matches the description. If we are unsure about an item then we will invite you to come and see the lost property so that you can confirm whether the item is yours or not.

In addition, we organise a lost property stall at each parents evening, so that parents attending the event can look at the lost property and see if they recognise any items as theirs.

The member of staff responsible for lost property is the School Business Manager, Mrs Sue Casey.

Any complaints about lost property should be submitted according to our normal complaints procedure.
