M’cr School’s PE Association have grant funding to enable your school to access Bikeability training with our delivery partners the National Cycling Academy (NCA).

With funding from Department for Transport and Youth Sport Trust, NCA can train your students in Bikeability – at Level 2 for your Year 7s and Level 3 for your Year 8s upwards.

NCA are working to a strict Covid-19 delivery code and all delivery is risk assessed and quality assured.

Cycling, very much a life skill like swimming, is part of your school’s approach to it’s Active 30:30 and Active Travel plan and should fall within your school’s approach to a broad and balanced curriculum. In addition, many of your Year 7s will have missed out on Bikeability in Y6.

Please involve your SLT in this – and if you aren’t the person to action this request please could you forward to the appropriate person.

First to respond will get priority. One of the team will discuss and arrange with you.

For further info and to book, call Lisa on 0161 796 6221 or email bikeability@ncagb.co.uk.
