Nottingham Community Police came into school today (Friday) to register and stamp all the school bikes in the large playground.

Two members of the police arrived with stickers, barcodes, and an app on their device to register the bikes against future theft.

Ten students from Key Stage 2-4 were involved in listening to a brief demonstration and talk about registering, cleaning the bikes, and applying the barcodes. Each bike was given a unique barcode and registered with the police. This makes tracking and locating them much easier if they were to be stolen.

The bike workshop lasted for a lesson with all 12 school bikes being successfully registered. It was an opportunity for students to meet the police and be part of a unique and worthwhile scheme. The police were complimentary about the effort and participation displayed by the students.
