Bike It

We are pleased to welcome Bike It Keith, who is now working with our academy.

We hope to stage another bike ride next term, with other events possibly including skills training and puncture repairing. We hope that Dr Bike will visit to advise how to ensure that our bikes are safe and legal!

2017 Big Pedal fortnight starts on 20 March

West St Leonards Primary Academy is proud to be a Bike It school and has achieved Sustrans’ Bronze Award for encouraging the school community to choose to travel in more active and sustainable ways. Bike It is a highly successful project aimed at increasing levels of walking, scooting and cycling to school. This involves having members of staff who are Bike It Champions and a group of children in school who are the Bike Crew. The Bike Crew meet to discuss ways to encourage more children to cycle and scoot to school.

Academy's cycle routes

We hold a range of events throughout the academic year to promote cycling and scooting to school, these include:

  • Bike / Scoot to school weeks
  • Bike breakfasts
  • Bike skills sessions
  • Bling your bike parades
  • Bike repair sessions
  • After school bike rides
  • Lucky Lock
