Parents say that children at Risca Primary have been banned from riding their bikes to school.
Ceri Jeffries, 32, has three ten-year-olds at the school and says she is shocked the school has taken this decision considering its “eco” status.
Her children normally cycle in a group with four other children, cutting the twenty minute walk down to a five minute ride.
But now she says they cannot bring their bikes on site, and have to chain them outside the grounds if they decide to continue cycling.
Mrs Jeffries said she understood the school bike shed was to be removed.
She said: “The school is an eco- friendly school but has decided that children are no longer allowed to cycle to and from school, even though children have been doing this for years, including myself as a child.”
