Would it be possible to ask the Rov`s opinion on the following:
A Rebbe who confiscates an item from his talmid (as it was distracting him and / or others) and subsequently lost it, is he mechuyev to pay back? (Referring to Primary school). And what is the Halocho if its is an item which is against the school rules to bring?
I don’t know the minhag in GB but if the school has the right to confiscate items w/o returning them either bec. it’s a school rule which the school informed the parents of or it is the minhag then the rebbe is ok since he wasn’t required to return it in the first place-it is true in both cases and I suspect more likely in the second case
