Sustrans Scotland’s I Bike programme is a way for schools to be supported to achieve aims they already have, rather than as additional work. Activities should be used to target specific curriculum areas and integrate with a school’s development plan.
The programme provides lots of support to school staff to help pupils become healthier and more active. As well as access to equipment such as bikes, scooters and helmets, our Officers have:
- Local knowledge of safe walking and cycling routes
- Contacts at other schools and in the community
- Experience of delivering indoor and outdoor activities and lessons
- A network of local, trained volunteers and parents to provide extra support.
