It is very important that our children do not leave any property outdoors at Newsham Primary School overnight. Although the perimeter to our premises is locked, there have recently been two cases of bikes being stolen from our bike shelter. I can only presume they are being lifted over the fence and taken on a route that manages to avoid our CCTV. Locking a bike hasn’t been a deterrent to these thieves so please ensure bikes and scooters are taken home at the end of each day. By the way, children are only allowed to bring a bike or scooter to school if the child has a lock and a helmet.
