Sustrans Active School Travel Programme

This year we have been shortlisted to take part in the fantastic, "Active School Travel Programme". Our school applied to take part in this initiative and fortunately we are one of the few schools to have been chosen. Throughout the year, Ronan, our leader from Sustrans, will be coming into school to deliver assemblies and workshops such as Dr Bike, which will allow children throughout the entire school to bring their bikes to school to have them checked over, to ensure they are cycle-safe.

As with the Eco award, our school must now fulfil certain criteria in order to achieve a bronze, silver and gold award. Ronan has been out in school and has identified barriers to our success such as the lack of cycle paths in the village. With his help, we hope to be able to address this issue, enabling the children of Artigarvan Primary School to become more active in their everyday lives and on their journeys to and from school. 

I look forward to updating you more on this exciting programme within our school, for now, why not take a look at the Sustrans website where you can read about the results and testimonies from current and previous participating schools.


Dr Bike


All bikes have now been checked- well done Ronan! Each bike has a checklist attached outlining any further adjustments which are needed to the bikes. The Year 6 children were shown how to carry out the checks on their own bikes. We look forward to seeing more cyclists travelling to school in the future!
