Get set… we’re taking part in The Big Pedal 2019, the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose an active journey to school.
The challenge runs from 25 March to 05 April.
On each day of the challenge schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents walking, cycling or scooting to school. Our best five days will determine our final position in the challenge. We’ll be competing against other schools right across the UK, and if we clock up the most bike and scooter journeys we’ll win!
Why we’re taking part
It’s a great way to get more of our pupils actively travelling to school. We will be competing to become one of the UK’s top schools for active journeys and will be in with a chance to win prizes including bike and scooter stunt shows and fantastic cycle and scooter storage.
All you need to do is encourage your child(ren) to walk, cycle or scoot to school every day during the event, and join them on their way – parent and sibling journeys count too!
