Where do I put the labels and loops?
Many people ask this question on a daily basis and cannot always find the information close at hand. Those of you wondering where on earth you are supposed to put your labels and loops in readiness for the new term - this section is for you!
For all uniform articles please name them on the inside of the collar or waistband with a woven label. Please also remember to name socks and put labels in shoes & plimsolls. For Wellington boots please name inside with indelible pen and punch a hole at the top of the boot adding a loop of string to both boots so they can be hung.
Please put loops in the collar or waistband of all jumpers, cardigans, sweatshirts, tracksuit bottoms, and overalls so that they can be hung on pegs easily. Some parents use different coloured ribbon as it is strong and can be identified by the child quickly.
Prep School Uniform
For all uniform articles please name them on the inside of the collar or waistband. Please also remember to name socks and put labels in shoes, trainers & plimsolls. For sports kit, please sew a name tape on the outside of all sports kit below any embroidery on the left hand side of the chest on all tops, on the bottom of the leg on all shorts, near the pocket on tracksuit bottoms and on the bottom of the top flap on the skirt. Please ensure that all shoes and trainers are also clearly named.
A loop sewn halfway down the long side of swimming towels as this helps to keep them off the ground and the nametape should be sewn near to the loop in order for the towel to be easily identified. If your child brings a watch to school please ensure that it is engraved with his or her name.
