thats dd's teacher has DREW dd's name in her coat? its a lilac coat but has a white lining, and there just underneath the hood is her name in large letters shock i mean whats wrong with writing in the tag if she really feels she has to hmm

does it really matter though?

belgo Fri 05-Sep-08 16:33:03

yes that's annoying. Is there a school policy of labelling coats?

belgo Fri 05-Sep-08 16:33:27

it matters if it's a good coat that you want to sell on later.

Strange one.
I too would be narked I think

Although probably would let it go without saying anything in the interests of desired harmonious relationship with teacher of dd.

Overmydeadbody Fri 05-Sep-08 16:33:37

why didn't you already label it? Could have prevented this situation from ever arising.

Well, if you had put a name tag in there then she wouldn't have needed to. hmm

expatinscotland Fri 05-Sep-08 16:33:43

you didn't label it yourself before she started school?

Overmydeadbody Fri 05-Sep-08 16:34:16

I've bought DS second hand coats with other kid's names in them. It never deterred me.

belgo Fri 05-Sep-08 16:34:44

yes you should have labelled it yourself, but I know that's very easy to forget to do.

You are told at our school to label everything. Perhaps though she should have asked first, but maybe its a policy.

Not worth fussing about now though

How old is she?

southernbelle77 Fri 05-Sep-08 16:35:21

I imagine it's pretty annoying for the teacher to not have ask all the time because pupils do not come with coats etc labelled.

However, mentioning it to you would have been better than writing it in which I think is wrong.


She should have just reminded you to do it if it needed labeling.

I would have been quite angry.

oh, well, all the girls' kit comes out of Primark or given to us or is handed down.

i just use our surname labels. or a Sharpie pen.

loopylou6 Fri 05-Sep-08 16:36:52

no i didnt label it, very stupid i know, but i still dont think there was a need for big bold letters in her coat. P she is 4, only started on wednesday and is LOVING it

my dd1's nursery school teacher actually thanked me for sending dd1 in a labelled coat, as another child has exactly the same coat.

Perhaps it is unusual to label coats and cardigans. My mother sewed on all the labels when I was at school. I iron them on.

PeaMcLean Fri 05-Sep-08 16:37:54

She should have told your DD to make sure it had a label put in it. i bet there were others in the class. Did she do the same to them?

loopylou6 Fri 05-Sep-08 16:38:02

i admit that i should of labelled it, i labelled everything else... but still

JuneBugJen Fri 05-Sep-08 16:38:41

There you are. She is loving school even with a teacher who is a glad hand with a marker pen. Let it go!!!

loopylou6 Fri 05-Sep-08 16:40:39

i have no idea if she destroyed wrote in anyones elses coat, but its particulary annoyed me becasue its so visable when she wears it, you know the low hung hood type of thing?

loopylou6 Fri 05-Sep-08 16:41:42

lol june, i will let it go (unless she comes home with her full name and address in block letters on the front of her pinny grin) i just wanted to foind out if drawing in childrens coats was the norm lol

JuneBugJen Fri 05-Sep-08 16:42:11


belgo Fri 05-Sep-08 16:42:44

no it's not the norm, I would have thought reception teachers were far too busy dealing with all the children to write in coats.

Overmydeadbody Fri 05-Sep-08 16:43:56

It's not the norm no
