Cycle to School week 2021

Children concerns over air pollution.

The majority of school children don't think adults are doing enough to tackle climate change. A YouGov poll, commissioned by Sustrans in 2021, surveyed 1,305...

  • Nearly half (49%) of UK school pupils are worried about air pollution near their school
  • Only 2% of UK children currently cycle to school, even though 14% would like to
  • Only 2% of UK children currently scoot to school, even though 10% would like to

On a more positive note, many children do understand the benefits of active travel … 

40% of pupils thought more people walking, cycling or scooting to school was the best way to bring down levels of air pollution near their school- the highest ranking answer.

“We must make it easier, safer and more enjoyable for children to walk, cycle, or scoot to school, so they can be more active for their health and wellbeing, connect with others and foster a sense of community, and help to reduce air pollution for the sake of their health, and the planet.”

Xavier Brice, CEO at Sustrans

Day 1

 

We started our Cycle to School week with a bikers breakfast. Cycling to school really burns off calories and makes you really hungry!!

Days 2-4

Our year 6 pupils are working with the Bikeability team to make sure they stay safe on the roads.

 

Our Year 3 pupils are undertaking their pedestrian training to make sure they have a good understanding of road safety.

Bling your Bike

 

To celebrate the end of Cycle to school week we held a Bling your bike competition. We asked parents and carers to help children to decorate their bikes. There were some amazing entries. The Mayor of South Tyneside, Pat Hay, judged the competition for children in EYFS and Key stage One.Our chair of governors, Mr Newham,judged our Key stage Two competition. Well done to the winners and everyone who took part.
