Year 5 Bikeability

Year 5 are taking part in Bikeability this week. Bikeability is a progressive programme, in which pupils first master cycle handling skills in a traffic free environment to complete level 1. National Standards Cycling Instructors help to develop pupils skills and confidence to cycle on local roads and simple junctions for level 2.

Bikeability is designed to give young people the skills and confidence to ride, especially on roads. Cycling is a life skill and learning to ride a bike is something we believe pupils should be able to achieve.
