Education – Secondary schools

Cycle spaces:
Cycle parking spaces may be shared between students and staff, and are calculated based on the total number of staff and students as per the technical guidance.

Students:

Compliance for students can be based on the provision of compliant lockers only based on the following logic:
β€’ Where secondary schools have sports facilities, compliance shall be based on the provision of compliant lockers only. The provision of showers or changing spaces is assumed to be included with the sports facilities are do not need to be assessed.
β€’ Where secondary schools do not have sports facilities, cyclist facilities are assessed as per the technical guidance.

Secondary schools will, in almost all cases, will already have sports facilities including enough showers and adequate changing facilities to meet the BREEAM requirements by default. For most students however, the most important facility is likely to be adequate locker storage rather than showers or changing facilities.

Staff:

Separate shower and changing facilities must be provided for staff. Locker facilities may be shared with students if appropriate, but staff lockers should be suitably located in relation to the other staff facilities.
The number of showers for staff should be based on the total number of staff and one shower for every 100 staff*, subject to a minimum of one shower being provided.

*This is based on 1 cycle storage space per 10 staff, and 1 shower per 10 cycle storage spaces.
