At Holy Cross in P.7 we become aware of: appropriate road use:
how to apply the Green Cross Code;
how conspicuity reduces road collisions;
passenger skills including boarding and disembarking from cars and home;
school transport; and
how bicycles are best maintained and ridden.
Primary 7 have now completed their Cycling Proficiency. Well done and remember to keep safe on the road! They are pictured along with their trainers Mrs Denise Sloan and Mrs Sharon Grant.
The Cycling Proficiency Scheme (CPS) has commenced for our primary 7 children. It teaches children who can already ride a bicycle, how to do so more safely. It covers what to wear, bicycle maintenance and the rules of the road. It also allows children to practice cycling manoeuvres in a safe environment. Manoeuvres include starting off, slowing down, stopping and parking, turning right and left, overtaking parked cars, passing side roads and carrying out emergency stops safely.
As well as the practical aspects, pupils must pass a theory test on relevant sections of the Highway Code.
