      Lost Property and Valuables

      Please name your child’s uniform. We happily return named items, but we are unable to
      store unnamed items. Each Term, at the end of week 10, we send all unclaimed unnamed items to charity.

      Please encourage your child to check the lost property cupboard in student reception if
      they have lost an item.

      If your child has lost valuable property (e.g. phones, jewellery, ear pods etc) please send
      them to Admin Reception to check the Register. Any unclaimed items are donated to
      charity at the end of the year.

      Enviro School News - Mobile Phone Recyling

      As an Enviroschool, we don't only consider our school's impact on the planet, but want to help the community lighten their footprint too.

      One of our latest initiatives is to collect old phones that are no longer in use. Phones will be wiped clean and parts reused and/or melted down to be reused and repurposed - keeping them out of the landfill.

      Our collection box is located in the library, so if you have old phones lying around your home, let us take them off your hands and put them to good use.
