This month, all eyes are on Lees Brook Community Sports College as they pilot the new six week cycling curriculum package. The package, designed for teachers in secondary schools, has been created to support after school cycling clubs and offers lesson plans, activities and supporting materials. The lessons are suitable for both physical education and citizenship classes.
Lees Brook Community Sports College has 1,100 pupils and was considered an ideal place to trial the materials by everyone concerned; the College has a rich and varied programme of extra curricular activities and already runs a popular after school cycling club. If anyone wants to see the new curriculum package, please don’t hesitate to contact us here at Derby Council.
Another after school cycling club opened this month in Boulton Primary School. The club, which received additional revenue from Local Network Funding, will be appointing a coach to meet the needs of the pupils. The funding will also be used to train a number of the School’s teachers to become Cycle Trainers and to provide bikes and bike containers for the pupils.
