Lost Property and Pre-worn Uniform
We understand that replacing school uniform and equipment is expensive and so hopefully these guidelines will assist pupils in retrieving any items that they misplace in school. Please remember that there are over 1200 students at AGGS, all wearing the same uniform. We cannot recognise items as belonging to a particular person if they are not labelled. Labelling all items ensures they can be returned to its owner.
At AGGS, pupils must take responsibility for their own property. If they lose something they should first check the classroom or area where they believe the property was left. Then, they can check the boxes outside the lost property cupboard, near the Main Hall.
There are some boxes in the corridor near the Main Office for un-named lost items, one for lost umbrellaâ€™s and another for trainers.
If named items are found, Mrs Owen will send the student an email (copying in the parents) to let them know that itâ€™s been handed in and asking them to collect their property from the Main Office. Students should check their school emails regularly if they have lost something. If an email has not been received either the lost item wasnâ€™t named (so check the box in the corridor) OR it hasnâ€™t been handed in.
Each week the boxes are cleared and the items are moved into the lost property cupboard, they will be held there for a half term, if not collected they will be either sold (as below), donated to charity or thrown away.
We also have lots of spectacles, keys and small lost items outside the lost property cupboard.
Firstly,Â Thank you so much for the donations of uniform, last year we raised ÂŁ1350 all of which all goes to AGGS.
We have a variety of good quality, pre-worn AGGS uniform and some sports kit/equipment available to purchase throughout the year atÂ veryÂ reasonable prices. If your daughter needs anything, requests to purchase pre-worn uniform can be sent via email to Karen Owen atÂ firstname.lastname@example.org
When your daughter leaves school or if sheâ€™s outgrown her uniform and/or PE kit, we will be happy to receive anyÂ currentÂ AGGS uniform thatâ€™sÂ clean,Â and inÂ good condition,Â preferably with name tags removed. Please label bags â€śuniform donationsâ€ť and mark for the attention of Mrs Owen, they can be handed into our Reception staff or your daughter can leave them outside our Lost Property cupboard.
