Please write your child’s name on all their clothing – it helps enormously if they get lost or mixed up with another child’s clothes. Please note, we are not responsible for any lost items of clothing. We teach children to take full responsibility for their possessions. If for any reason clothing is lost, we endeavour to help locate it, but we do not replace uniform of any kind.
