Lost property

All your child’s possessions, including clothing, should be named, in order to facilitate returning found articles. All lost property should be handed in at the SFO (Student Facilities Office) by reception. If a student loses any item they should ask at the SFO if it has been found. These are held until the end of term and then put on display for the students to reclaim. Anything unclaimed will then be donated to charity. Beckfoot School accepts no responsibility for the safety and security of your child’s possessions. With this in mind, please consider whether to allow your child to bring valuable items on site.

Uniform Voucher Scheme
As of 1 April 2014, Bradford Council stopped providing uniform allowance vouchers for parents. The Council has passed responsibility for funding and administering this service to schools. Beckfoot Trust has agreed to provide financial assistance for funding uniform along similar lines to those previously adopted by the Council.

Parents/carers should contact Megan Harvey, Campus Admin, to check eligibility. To enable us to distribute vouchers, claimants will need to provide a proof of identity and be registered as eligible according to the school policy. If either of these criteria are not met, the claim will have to be reviewed.

For further information please see the Uniform Voucher Policy.
At present, vouchers can only be redeemed at Henry Smiths, Shipley or Andrew Firths, Keighley.
