Scooters are very popular with families and frequently used by children to get to and from school as a natural choice for shorter journeys.
Scooterbility is a road safety session designed by Cyclist Training Ltd.
Created in 2013 to promote and encourage safe active travel.
90% of pupils live with in a 15 minute walk or bus journey from primary settings. Scooting safely to and from school supports young children to achieve 60 minutes of activity each day.
Scooterbility commences in an environment away from cars and traffic, typically on a playground or sports area. There are a number of outcomes to be taught so children will learn how to use their scooters effectively for healthy fun; safety checks; starting and stopping under control; manoeuvring and pavement etiquette. The session progresses onto local, quiet streets (around the school
or leisure centre) where children learn how to share the pavements with other users and how to identify and practise where and how to cross roads safely.
On completion of the Scooterbility session all participants receive a badge and signed certificate. Schools are provided with individual feedback.
Sessions are delivered by National Qualified Bikeability Instructors (DBS checked).
Scooters, helmets, high viz, playground equipment, badges, certificates, information/consent leaflets, risk assessments etc and individual feedback
will be provided as part of the booking.
