Following advice on Safeguarding of Children, the School has decided that the present system of naming children’s sports kit with name tags does not adequately safeguard pupils. We have therefore decided to move to a system of initialled labels which will continue to identify clothing, whilst providing a greater degree of anonymity when pupils are photographed or seen playing in their sports kit.
Please find enclosed 12 labels for your child and a diagram indicating where the labels should be fixed. Clothing should be labelled in time for the start of the new term in September 2015.
In the first instance, due to this change in policy, the labels have been provided by the School. It is anticipated that labels can be recycled as children grow out of or acquire new sports clothing. However, if required, further name tags are available via the school office at a cost of £10/12 labels.
Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.
