We regularly have a phone call from a resident or a local driver to convey their worry about the way that one of our students has used their bike or not been safe when crossing a road.
Very occasionally there are accidents involving students cycling to school, so we ask parents to please take time to check your child’s walking or cycling route, crossing points, junctions, ways to stay safe and dangers to look out for. Cycle helmets are so important too!
Pedestrians and cyclists have a responsibility to use the paths and roads safely. Sadly, the more common accidents are caused by the careless and carefree mindset of slightly older students.
Hampshire County Council and Hart District Council want to invest in walking and cycling facilities in our area. They are looking for input regarding the routes and areas in the draft plan. Please could you give feedback at this link by 20th August.
