SCOOTABILITY

SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT…

Scooting has become very popular with children, especially scooting to and from school. Scooting is fantastic and helps to promote physical activity from an early age, while also helping to develop skills which are crucial to a child’s development, such as balance, co-ordination and agility. What’s more the programme assists with skills required when cycling, such as steering, stopping and balancing.

Thank’s to our new Scootability programme children now have the opportunity to learn how to use footpaths safely, spot any potential dangers and become more confident on their scooters. As well as being fun, our programme encourages children to exercise on a daily basis which helps your school to meet the governments recommended one hour of physical activity each day for your pupils, enabling them to keep fit and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The aim of this programme is to use the scooters as a fun and active way to revise and reinforce basic pedestrian safety messages. The key safety messages are equally relevant to younger and older children who walk or scoot independently to school, to the local shops or around where they live.

Scootability is a progressive programme which can be used as part of your schools curriculum.

WHAT DO OUR STAFF THINK?

COACH JOSH SAYS…

“Scootability allows young children to learn a valuable life skill in a fun and safe environment. Our scooters are used alongside fun activities that build confidence, spatial awareness and dynamic balancing skills. The structured lessons help to improve gross motor skills, while also teaching valuable road safety awareness”

“Balanceability is the fundamental starting point for children’s cycling and an excellent opportunity to promote active lifestyles at the earliest possible age. I can see it also provides a natural lead into bike ability for schools and I would encourage all schools to give children the opportunity to use balance bikes”
