Lancashire Police attended Archbishop Temple School yesterday to fit front and rear bike lights to pupils’ cycles.
Lancashire is a road-cycle accident hot spot so the local police are attending schools to fit lights onto bikes to ensure children are visible when cycling to and from school. As well as fitting lights, the police gave pupils road safety advice.
All children who cycle to school must ask Mrs Player, Pastoral Manager, for an application for a cycle pass. The school kindly asks that pupils do not cycle to school without receipt of a cycle pass. We are conscious of the need for safety when cycling, and so insist on pupils wearing helmets when riding in. We have a cycle park with stands; pupils must provide their own lock.
