Many of the Year 5 pupils have recently taken part – and successfully completed – their Bikeability training, the national scheme for improving cycling proficiency.
Bikeability cycle training equips children with vital life skills. Pupils not only learn to cycle, they gain independence, social skills and a sense of wellbeing. After Bikeability, children are better at responding to risk and report increased confidence. As a result, more children cycle to school, which in turn improves mental health and wellbeing. This allows children to get more out of the classroom, improving their attention span and engagement.
Congratulations to all those in Year 5 who have completed their Bikeability training, and the best of luck to those taking part later in the term.
