This week is National Road Safety Week - please do talk to the children about this as we will be!

Bikeability

Bikeability is based on the government approved National Standards for Cycle Training, which teaches trainees the necessary skills to ride confidently on today's roads. It is a life-long skill that can be instilled at a young age or developed for the first time in adulthood, encouraging ahealthy lifestyle, boosting confidence and developing independence.

 

Bikeability is the public face of National Standard Cycle Training and is used by schemes and instructors who have registered to deliver Bikeability by meeting certain minimum standards. Scheme registration is part of the quality-assurance process to help ensure organisations are delivering best-practice cycle training.

At Clockhouse we offer bikeability to our year 5 and 6 children we annually run Bikeability level 1 and 2. This is a 5 day course for up to 30 children from across the year group. The children need to be able to ride a bike and must bring along a roadworthy bike to take part.  The course starts in the playground and then moves onto quiet local roads. Each child gets 2 hours tuition on the Monday in a group of approximately 15 and then Tuesday to Friday they are taught in smaller groups of approximately 10 for 1.5 hours per group per day. This way each child gets 8 hours tuition over the week. Letters will go out once dates are confirmed and the 30 children chosen will be on a first come first served basis.
