Bikeability Training for Year 6

We have arranged for cycle trainers to visit our school and provide an opportunity for children to participate on a Bikeability course during the week beginning 18th March 2024. Children must be able to ride and control a bike well to attend. Ideally children should supply their own bike and helmet, although we can supply a bike if need be (dependent on availability of bikes).

The training will take place from 18th March to 22nd March and your child needs to bring their bike and helmet into school during this week.

How do I book a place for my child?

It is important for your child’s bike to be in a good roadworthy condition, and the right size for them to cycle comfortably. At the beginning of the first lesson the instructors will check the condition of the bike, and make minor adjustments if necessary. If the bike is in poor condition, and deemed to be unsafe to cycle, your child will not be permitted to continue the course (unless a replacement loan bike is available to use).

The training programme is progressive, and your child is expected to attend every day; the training session is usually 90 minutes daily. If a lesson is missed it is in the trainers discretion to accept your child on further lessons. The first days training enables children to demonstrate their bike handling skills; children who can demonstrate they can cycle confidently will be invited to progress on road for the subsequent sessions.

Attached is a guide to checking your child’s bike, and recommended clothing.

Bikeability is an important part of our program as an active healthy and sustainable school.
