We are pleased to announce that we have secured free Level 1 & Level 2 Bikeability training in school for your year 5 child.

The training will take place from Monday 11th - Thursday 14th January 2021.

The daily sessions will focus on the cycling skills required to become a skilled and independent road cyclist.

The course will give your child the opportunity to practice cycling on local roads around school under the supervision of experienced Bikeability instructors, learning the skills they need to cycle short journeys safely.

Other essential skills taught include road observation, communicating with other road users, and effective road positioning.

We would like as many children as possible to take part in this important and extremely useful free Bikeability training, which will give them important skills for life. We do hope that your child will take part.

Please read through the information below, and return the signed consent form to the drop off box in reception, by Wednesday 18th November 2020. If you need a paper copy to sign please come and ask in the school office.
