Well done to everyone who took part in Bike To School Week! Keep Cycling!!!

Bike to School Week is a great way for children, parents and teachers all to give travelling to and from school by bike a go! And along the way to enjoy the fresh air and freedom that cycling provides, find out the best cycling routes around your neighbourhood, and put your cycle training skills to good use.

We encourage you all to get involved - and there are lots of support resources for parents and teachers to help with organising activities. Not to mention competitions to enter with some great prizes!

Our partner Sustrans is offering resources to help schools celebrate Bike to School Week including a 5-day resource pack for teachers to run activities across the week and a free pack for families with tips on cycling, walking and scooting to school.
Check out their website for more details

There are also posters for schools to use, for instance, on the school noticeboard, website or parent newsletters. Download your school resources here

And don’t forget to get involved on social media - share your stories, encourage others to take part.

The face for Sustrans 2019 and 2020??

We had a successful walk to school week May 2019

Look at us in the Sustrans News

Walk to school in May

Bikes: In 2016/17 we had 3.2% using bikes. In 2017 /18 this moved to 6.1% and in 2018 we moved to 10.9%
Walking: In 2016/17 we had 37.1% walking to school. In 2017/18 we had 40.2%. Unfortunately this dropped a little in 2018 to 36.4%


Car: In 201617 we had 37.9% of our pupils using cars to come to school. This dropped in 2017/18 to 24.4%. Unfortunately this went up again slightly in 2018 to 26.4%


Overall active modes have gone from 41.1% in 2016/17 to 47.6% in 2017/18 to 49.1% in 2018 which is really pleasing.
We really hope our methods of travelling will continue to improve in walking/biking and scooting in 2019 as we aim for our GOLD SUSTRANS AWARD!
Thanks to all parents and pupils for choosing alternative ways to come to school rather than coming in the car or bus.
Thanks from Mrs Mc Anespie and Ms Mulholland (Sustrans Coordinators)
All the best!
