Is my school responsible for a teacher losing valuables?Watch this thread
On the 27th of June, I went on a school trip to London where we just explored the city and went on an uber boat. On the uber boat, I left my bag on the chair I was sitting on momentarily to stand up and watch the view from the side of the boat. The bag was in full view of a teaching assistant and also my friend. One of the other teachers with us decided to take my bag and move it to besides her feet, without asking me. When I came back a few minutes later, she waved me off and told me that she'd look after my stuff for me and make sure nothing gets lost. Once we left the uber boat and were on the tube to go somewhere else, I realised that my airpods were not in my bag, even though I'd made sure they were there when I had gotten onto the uber boat. Would it be possible for me to be reimbursed or for the teacher to be held responsible, or would I be at fault?
As to liability; if the teacher said they would look after the bag then they are liable for loss of the contents. Getting reimbursement is another issue though.
