‘No child will leave Year 6 unable to ride a bike,’ pledges Derby City Council – transportxtra.
Cycle Derby’s efforts were noted after an Ofsted inspection at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary school. Ofsted inspectors visited the school while a cycle training session was taking place. Cycle Derby’s Mark Smith told LTT: “In the past, some schools who had experienced the same, had asked the Cycle Derby team to revisit when things were a little calmer. Staff at St Jo’s had a different approach and lauded the cycling offer and its impact on their children’s education.”
In Ofsted’s ‘Good’ report for the school last week, inspectors noted that “all the pupils learn to ride and are rightly proud of their achievements”.
