Cycling Safety for Students program

Follow the road rules

Cycling Safety for Students is a free, classroom-based program that aims to educate students about how to stay safe while riding. Throughout the program, students will work in small groups to create a ‘Cycle Safety’ campaign for their school. The program includes a five-lesson unit of work, cross-curricular lesson ideas, activity sheets and fact sheets written for students. As a parent or carer, you can register to gain access to the teaching resources.

Here is a brief outline of the content in the unit of work:

Lesson 1 – Introduction to bikes and cyclist safety

Students will activate their prior knowledge about bikes and safe cycling and begin to plan a cycle safety campaign.

Lesson 2 – Promoting safety

Students will learn about the Amy Gillett Foundation (AGF) and how it, and similar organisations, use campaigns and slogans to promote cyclist safety in the community.

Lesson 3 – Bike safety: maintaining your bike

Students will get to know the parts of a bike and how these should be looked after to help ensure they stay safe while riding.

Lesson 4 – Cycle safety: smart and safe

Students will continue the theme of cycle safety, but will consider the rules they need to follow to help ensure they stay safe while riding.

Lesson 5 – Finalising the campaign

Students will take all the knowledge they have gained about cyclist safety to finish and present their school cycle safety campaign.
