Below is a summary of how lost property is dealt with at Arena Academy. We appreciate that replacing lost items can be expensive, so hopefully these guidelines will help.
Any staff members or students who find lost items, will hand them into reception. In the unfortunate event that your child does lose something, they should:
1. Visit the last area they were in. If the item is not there, they should retrace their steps and check all classrooms/areas that they have been in that day.
2. If they have been unable to find their lost item, they should go to the school reception to check whether the item has been handed in. Please note that sometimes, it may take a few days before lost items are handed in.
3. If they can not find it, you or your child can complete this form and we will try to reunite you with the item by emailing you.
Lost property that is not labelled will be held for up to four weeks. Any lost property not claimed, will be donated to a local charity.
Labelling of uniforms is very easy to do; there are sew-on or iron-on name tags, and marker pens for clothing. Simply writing your child’s full name, surname or initials on their uniform will help them to reclaim lost items. Labelling of shoes and trainers can be done with a good quality laundry marker pen or permanent marker pen, just remember that over time the writing will gradually fade. We hope you find this information useful and thank you for your co-operation.
