We operate a cycle training scheme called ‘Bike It’. The scheme contains four elements and is offered to P5-7 pupils to help them become safe cyclists who can use roads safely.
- P5 – Ready Steady Bike
- P6/7 - The Scottish Cycle Training Scheme (off-road training)
- P6/7 - The Scottish Cycle Training Scheme (on-road training)
- P7 – A Planned Journey
This programme is a joint initiative between Road Safety Officers and Active School Co-ordinators and couples a healthier lifestyle with road safety priorities.
The importance of cycle helmets is dramatically highlighted at the Council’s annual experiential learning event held at Dean Castle Country Park.
Primary 6 pupils find out the dangers of falling from your bike when your head is unprotected.
