A parent contacted the Parent Council through our Facebook page to raise the issue of bikes being stolen from the school’s bike shed. Following a meeting with Mr Wilson, the school have shared this advice:
Unfortunately there is an ongoing issue with bicycle thefts in North Edinburgh and beyond. Around the UK approximately half a million bikes are stolen every year.
In our school we provide a secure bike shed for use by students. It is kept locked through most of the school day. Although the incidence of theft from this facility is low, it is still upsetting for those who are victims when it happens.
If your child stores their bicycle in the school bike shed please ensure that it is well protected. The minimum security advised is the use of a D lock. Further advice is available in the article below. Stay safe.
