Cycling Friendly Primary School

Cycle Friendly Primary School

Support more children to ride their bikes.

Cycling to school brings so many positive benefits: keeping children fit and healthy, building their confidence and giving them skills for life. Our nationally accredited programme provides an award scheme to support primary schools to make it easier for pupils to cycle.

The award supports Scottish primary schools to develop cycling and increase the opportunities for children to cycle to school. From the initial registration through to assessment, we work closely with teachers, parents and pupils to help them achieve the award and schools are supported through each step of the process towards becoming Cycling Friendly.

Award handbook

Every primary school in Scotland can apply: it doesn't matter if a school currently provides few opportunities to cycle; what is most important is a vision, a willingness and a commitment to increasing cycling opportunities.

Take the first steps to becoming Cycling Friendly by reading the award handbook and contact us if you have any questions.
