St. Joseph's Catholic College

Bicycles on Site

Unfortunately, there have been a few incidents recently where students have left their bikes not securely locked and we have had a couple of thefts.

As the College handbook states, the College is not covered by insurance in case of damage, loss or theft to any item that does not form part of College property. This includes bicycles, scooters, mopeds or other vehicles. If an item is taken/damaged whilst at the College, we suggest that you contact the police to report it and you may be able to claim on your house insurance.

To help mitigate the situation, we would be grateful if you could explain to your child that it is their responsibility to ensure their bicycle is locked securely each day. We will also reiterate this in the next student briefing.

Thanking you in advance for your co-operation.
