Cycling to School

Priory School wishes to encourage its students to cycle to school as an aid to promote and improve health and fitness.

All bicycles brought to school must be locked securely in the school’s cycle shelter.

It recommends that students always:

  • - Wear a correctly fitted cycle helmet.
  • - Use appropriate reflective clothing and bike lights in conditions of poor visibility.
  • - Ensure that bicycles are in a roadworthy condition.
  • - Ride sensibly and follow the Highway Code, which includes giving clear signals of intent.
  • - Use safe crossing points and dismount to cross roads.

All cyclists have a responsibility to be courteous to other road users and not to behave in any way that may compromise the safety of other road users or pedestrians.
