Travelling safely to and from school on a bike / scooter
The safety of all our students travelling to and from school is of utmost importance. Recently, the school has seen an increase in students using bicycles and scooters to come to school which is excellent for health and fitness. To ensure the safety of everyone, there are laws and regulations around bicycles and scooters including E-Bikes, petrol powered bikes and E-Scooters that need to be followed.
E-Bikes and Petrol Powered Bikes
Bicycles that meet the requirements for permitted e-bikes can be used on public roads and road-related areas. Petrol-powered bicycles and other powered bicycles that do not meet the e-bike requirements outlined below are illegal and may only be used on private property (the school is Government property). There are two types of permitted e-bikes:
Power-assisted pedal cycles
Electrically power-assisted cycles.
These must be designed to be propelled primarily by the rider – they cannot be propelled exclusively by the motor. The motor is intended to help the rider, such as when going uphill or riding into a headwind.
E-Scooters are not permitted to be ridden under any circumstances. The NSW Government is currently running a trial of E-Scooters in selected areas. Please click on the following link for more information.
Students are not permitted to bring bicycles and scooters to school that do not meet the above requirements.
Please discuss these laws, regulations and safety issues with your child, including the wearing of helmets.
Please click the following link from the Transport for NSW Centre for Road Safety website to find out more information.
The NSW Department of Education also has advice for parents and students about travelling safely to and from school on bikes. Please click here to look at the resources to ensure the safety of all students.
Getting to and from school safely
As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.
Keep our school community safe by:
- driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
- being a good role model
- never calling your child from across the road
- using the safest place to cross the road.
- Help your child organise a school Opal card or bus pass if travelling by public transport. Go to transport.nsw.gov.au/ssts or phone 131 500.
- Help your child plan their public transport route to school, if needed. Use the trip planner at transportnsw.info/trip.
- Plan and practise walking routes with your child. Discuss with your child what they will do before and after school, and when they need to be home.
- Talk about what to do when they’re running late, miss the bus or train, lose their travel pass, feel unsafe travelling to and from school, or it's wet weather.
- Discuss the dangers of being distracted when crossing the road or riding a bike – including talking on the phone, texting or using headphones.
