Three years ago I had a moan on here about my kids' school trying to make helmets compulsory (on threat of detention) for every pupil who cycled to school. I wrote to the head about the school's lack of responsibility/liability for pupils' mode of journey, and the misguided, counter-productive nature of such a rule. It was quietly dropped.
Now I learn from my son that, starting next half-term, anyone cycling to school without a helmet will have their bike taken and locked up until a helmet is produced.
Is this even legal?
