Lost Property

What to do when you have FOUND something:

Anything that is found can be placed in the Lost Property cupboard located near opposite the staffroom. If you can, please place the item in the appropriate labelled box. If you are not sure where to put it, please leave it in the basket on top and it will be sorted into the correct box soon after.


What to do when you have LOST something:

Please check the appropriate box for your item in the Lost Property cupboard. If you can't find your missing item there, look in the basket on top of the cupboard. If not there, check again later - it may have taken a little while to be found and left at the Lost Property cupboard.


How to not lose something:

Finding your lost belongings will be made a lot easier if they are clearly labelled with your name. Including a contact number can be beneficial too.


Personalised Labels:

There are a number of companies that you can order personalised labels via the Internet or mail order. There are labels for clothing (iron on, sew on, permanent, semi-permanent, stretchable). There are labels for lunch boxes, lunch bags and drink bottles (large and small). There are bag tags for backpacks. There are even such things as shoe dots. There are labels for everything you need to take to school.


Most companies offer a wide variety of colours, allow you to include a telephone number and let you include a picture from their collection if you want. The following are the companies that I have used, ones that I have heard of and some that I have just found via a quick search:

Don’t want to use Personalised Labels?

Using a permanent marker pen with a thin nib will do the job too. Your first initial, surname and maybe also a contact number will give a lost item a great chance at being reunited with it’s owner.
