We are only a few days into the new school year and already we are having reports of lost property.
The biggest cause of lost property in school is not the children leaving it somewhere, we expect that and try to gather it.
The biggest cause of lost property in school is unlabelled items.
With so many children wearing identically sized clothes, either uniform or sourced from the same shops, it is inevitable that confusion occurs and very often isn’t spotted at home.
The same is true of lunch boxes, water bottles and snack bags. There will definitly be anohter child or more with the same item.
Please label with, or write on all items and clothing, the child’s name and ideally surname and class as well.
