IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE: Bikes & Scooters

Dear Parents/Carers

 

We are receiving an increasing number of concerns regarding unsafe riding of scooters and bicycles from members of the public.

 

Specifically, these relate to students who are riding against the flow of oncoming traffic, and riding across roads without stopping to check that it is safe to do so.

 

If your child rides a scooter or bicycle to and from school, can you please reinforce the importance of riding safely, and also encourage the wearing of helmets at all times.  The health and safety of all our students is our main concern, and we would appreciate your assistance in reiterating the dangers which are faced by scooter riders and cyclists if they take risks of this type.

 

Many thanks

Mrs Wilson
