Ramridge promotes sustainable travel and encourages children to cycle and scoot to school.
We work closely alongside Sustrans please take a look at their “working in schools” homepage:
We are extremely proud that we achieved our Bronze “Bike It” award at the end of School year 2012-13.
We have fantastic bike and scooter storage for children on our bike pods within the school grounds. We ask that children lock their bikes and scooters to the pods with a sturdy bike chain/lock.
All children who cycle or scoot to school on a Wednesday are entered in to a prize draw. The names are pulled out of a hat on the first Monday of each month. There are fantastic prizes such as t-shirts, pens, badges and reflective “snappy bands”.
Year 5 and 6 have the opportunity to take part in “Bikeablilty” training where they learn to cycle safely. The children have benefitted from this greatly and the majority of the children now cycle confidently on the road.
Look out for other bike related events throughout the year such as:
- Bling your bike competitions
- Bike breakfasts
- The Big Pedal
- KS1 Scooter Training
