At Stukeley Meadows we are very keen for as many children as possible to come to school riding bikes or scooters. We work together with Sustrans on our cycling programme. We have 8 Bike It Crew who work with the Cycling Champion Teachers who (led by Miss Barry) are part of the “Competition” subject group. Gathering data from our regular bike counts, organising family events, making sure bikes are safe and cycling proficiency, all encourages our pupils at Stukeley to be part of the sustainable travel community.
Active children encourages good learning!
This is the fourth year that Stukeley Meadows is proud to be part of “Sustrans Bike it Project.” Last year we successfully gained our bronze award and are working towards our silver this year.
