Get Cycling into Schools!

Shropshire’s primary schools have been invited to take part in a new cycle training pilot that will give teachers and teaching assistants the skills to deliver basic off-road cycle training,

Shropshire Council has been chosen to take part in the third phase of the Bikeability Trust’s In-School Cycle Training Pilot and is now offering schools the opportunity to get involved.

This pilot project will train staff – free of charge – to deliver the following as part of their PE curriculum:

Balance bike training – aimed at nursery, reception and Year 1 students this uses games to develop cycle handling and awareness skills on balance bikes. It teaches children fundamental movement skills to be able to progress to pedal bikes.

Cycle training – prepares pupils for accessing Level 1 and 2 Bikeability training, and ranges from  learning to ride two-wheeled cycles independently, to developing cycle handling and control skills on pedal cycles in traffic-free environments.

All schools taking part will receive six balance bikes and helmets free of charge.

This pilot project is fully funded by the Department for Transport and supported by the Department for Education.

Further details can be found here:

This week Miss Ashley and Mrs O'Dowd will be attending the training and we have already received our 6 free balance bikes! We will let you know when we have everything ready to go to get the children riding bikes safely.
