NINE pupils at Rivacre Valley Primary School have received certificates for successfully completing their Let’s Bike training.
And those children will now be able to ride their bikes to school providing they wear their helmets.
Parent governor Andy Perkins ran the course alongside PCSO Sarah O’Flannigan.
They emphasised the necessity to have a bike that is safe and roadworthy.
The theory course taught the children how to check the brakes, clean the lights and correct tyre pressure, as well as the importance of wearing high visibility clothing.
Pupil Shannon Harrison said: “The practical course taught me how to give correct hand signals, to look behind before moving off, how to overtake safely and how to find a safe place to cross.”
Jessica Russell, 10, said: “Riding my bike to school will be fun and it keep me fit and healthy.”
The school are looking for sponsorship to buy a helmet for each child attending the course and hope local businesses will be able to help.
