Go Velo delivers Bikeability to years 5, 6 and 7 in schools. This course is fully funded by the Department of Transport and is free to all schools. The training can be accessed by contacting the Local Authority or Schools Sports Partnership.
Once your school has been allocated funding, Go Velo will make contact with the school to book in the sessions. The school will receive a letter of confirmation, a letter for parents and consent forms, which need to be returned to school prior to the start of the course.
Children need to bring their bikes, helmets and suitable clothing to school. We send out a bike maintenance check list prior to the course, if parents have any concerns about the bike, it is recommended they contact the Go Velo mechanic on 01282 787464. Children are given a Go Velo High Visibility vest to wear for the sessions.
On successful completion of the course, children receive Bikeability level 1 and level 2 certificates and badges and a Tales of the Road booklet.
