St Paul’s Cycle Friendly Primary award

St Paul’s Primary School in Whiteinch has recently achieved the nationally recognised Cycle Friendly Primary School Award by demonstrating a clear commitment to increasing cycling in the school for pupils, teachers and parents.

The school was assessed against a range of criteria – the school has a cycling champion, an up to date active travel plan, delivers Bikeability Scotland’s Level 2 on road training to the pupils, pupils undertake regular litter picks on the local cycle network and the school has a great cycle shelter too! All clearly demonstrating that they fully deserved this Award.

The school also promotes cycling in the local community by working with De’ils On Wheels community bike workshop and being in involved in the We Go Pedal project to promote and encourage more people to cycle, both of which are run by local environmental charity Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET).
