Yr 5/6 Bikeability Cycle Training (Funded by the DfT)
What is it?
National standard cycle training for children aged 10 and over. The Bikeability level 2 course is delivered over 2 full days. The first morning session takes place on the school playground and seeks to achieve the level 1 outcomes. The remainder of the course is undertaken on-road along risk assessed routes in the local vicinity of the school. The course lasts 2 full days to achieve level 2 aims.
WOW is an incentive scheme to encourage pupils to travel to school in a sustainable and safe way.
How does it operate?
Class teachers log on and ask children to record their daily journeys using the WOW diary.
How do pupils earn badges?
Pupils need to record an average of 3 A*STARS journeys per week over a set period of time.
What do we mean by A*STARS journeys?
Any journey that uses a sustainable mode of travel (excluding car or van) and includes best road safety practices is classed as an A*STARS journey.
What is 100+ Achievers?
Schools that take part in WOW for a whole academic year have the opportunity to enter their children into an annual prize draw at the end of the year. To be entered, children must accumulate 100 or more A*STARS journeys.
