Lost Property

We appreciate that replacing lost uniform, coats, trainers and various other items is expensive and hopefully these guidelines will assist your son or daughter in retrieving any items they may misplace.  Staff members are unable to search for student’s lost property and the onus is on students to take responsibility for their own property.  When students lose property they should visit and look in the classroom or area where they believe the property was left.  If they do not find their property they should then go to Student Services.  

All lost property with a name tag that is handed into Student Services will be returned to its rightful owner by the receptionists.  Lost property that is handed into Student Services and is not labelled will be held for four weeks.  At the end of this period all lost property will be sent to one of the local charity shops.  In particular unlabelled uniform will be re-cycled within the school community.

Please remember there are over 1,200 students at Honley High School wearing the same uniform.  We cannot recognise items as belonging to a particular person if it is not labelled.  If property is labelled, it can be promptly returned to its owner via our receptionists, thus avoiding distress and a costly replacement.

Labelling uniform is very easy to do, name tapes are best, even iron-on tapes, however, if you do not have these, just write on the label or inside trainers or shoes with a good quality laundry marker pen or permanent marker pen.  Please use the full name or initial and surname, rather than just a first name e.g. J Jones is much better than John.  Washing does erase marker pens, so please check that your son or daughter’s name has not faded on their belongings.
