Student Personal Property

The Hayfield School is rightly proud that we have a community in which the vast majority do respect other people’s property.  The incident levels regarding damage or theft of property are thankfully low when considering the size of the school population and the necessary amount of movement around the building required on a day-to-day basis.

The school continues to operate cloakroom provision and students must ensure that they use the correct cloakroom allocated to their year group. They should not, however, be tempted to leave valuables or money in their coats or bags.  

All uniform and personal property should be clearly marked with the student’s name as this ensures an easy return to owners in the event of loss and can also serve as a deterrent to theft.

The school makes every effort to follow up reports of damage or theft and will as far as possible use every means available to assist in resolving situations when and if they arise.

VALUABLE PERSONAL ITEMS - the school strongly advises parents/carers that students should not bring to school any items of great value, in particular: mobile phones; mp3/mp4 players; tablet devices; expensive jewellery; expensive “designer” clothing including trainers.

Any such items of property brought onto the school site is entirely at the students own risk and the school will not accept the responsibility for its loss, damage or theft.  Our Insurers have confirmed on many occasions that such items brought onto the school site against school advice are not and could not be covered for insurance purposes by the school.


A cloakroom is available for coats and bags.  Students will have an opportunity to use a locker, if they wish. 


All students will be issued with a planner that they will use to write down their homework tasks and other reminders. Parents/carers are asked to check and sign planners on a weekly basis. Planners will be checked once per week during Tutor time but students should show their planner to their Group Tutor if a parent has written a note in it.
