Outspoken Bikeability Plus

St Laurence worked in partnership the Outspoken Cycling group and took  part in a FREE school cycling programme called Bikeability Plus.
The programme included a range of cycling activities across all year groups with the aim of creating a cycling culture in schools and increasing the number of children cycling to school at least once a week. The activities involved were:
  • Am amazing launch event- A whole day Try-Out show for pupils, teachers and parents (we bring lots of fun bikes and a pedal powered disco)
  • Balance Bike training for Reception Class
  • Learn to Ride lessons for Y3/4
  • Bike Maintenance lessons for Year 6 pupils.
  • Class Competition - rewards for winners such as 'The Watt Bike challenge' and cycle lights

The school had a fantastic time at the launch event and many parents and friends had a go after school too.

The amount of children who cycled to school at the end of Bikeability Plus increased by 35%.
