Can I get my confiscated item back?
If you have something illegal (like drugs or weapons), you probably won’t get them back (they will likely end up with the police). If the item is illegal for you to have because of your age, but wouldn’t be illegal for an adult to have (such as alcohol), then the school should return these to your parents or caregiver. If the item belonged to someone else, they may return it to the item’s owner.
In all other cases, your school has to return your confiscated items back as soon a practicable, which will usually be no later than the end of the school day. Keeping an item should not be used as a form of punishment.
Sometimes schools may have policies which for example requires a parent/caregiver to pick up the item for repeat offences, this is allowed.
