Balance Bike Programme

EYFS Balance Bike Programme

Balance, coordination, and FMS are an essential part of a child’s physical development in EYFS, with that in mind we have planned an exciting and ambitious EYFS balance bike programme to support a children’s physical development. Riding a bike gives you a great sense of freedom and we believe every child should have the chance to learn how to ride safely. The programme will deliver a three-part programme to nursery and foundation stage pupils.

The three stages will include prepare 2 ride, skills 2 ride-balance and skills 2 ride-pedals. The balance bike programme will run as a 6-week block, including a skills festival at the end of the school year along with a refresher session prior to the festival.

All balance bike sessions will take place on the same day each half term and we can work with groups of up to 12 pupils at a time. We will provide balance bikes and safety equipment along with a copy of the HSB Ready Set Ride resources and we will also support you in producing a bespoke bike policy for your school. The coach delivering the programme will work with the teacher/TA to upskill them on the delivery of balance bikes.
