Labelling of Uniform

ALL items of uniform should be named so that if it is lost, it can be easily returned to your son.  There are many ways of doing this but you could consider buying a Stamptastic School Name Labels Deluxe Bundle which consists of one Personalised Name Stamp + One Stamptastic Ink Pad + One White Fabric Pen. Although not cheap some of our parents have been using this system for a few years, it saves you time, is quick and easy to use and stays on clothing even after numerous washes.  Whatever you want to mark – uniform, shoes, trainers, drinks bottles, rulers, calculators, this stamp puts your son’s name on it.

The Parents’ Association has signed up to Stamptastic’s Loyalty scheme and for every Langton parent who uses this link ( to purchase the School Name Labels Deluxe Bundle the PA will receive a percentage donation.
