Pedal Power is very excited to be part of an Islington free pilot project of Friday Pedal and Play sessions from March to May 2020, offering cycling and sporting activities for pupils who attend the borough’s special educational needs (SEN) schools. Pedal Power will use their 15 years of experience and their huge range of adapted cycles to allow pupils of all abilities and needs to take part in cycling.
All Islington SEN schools were initially contacted at the beginning of 2020 and asked for an expression of interest. Islington council are fully funding these session to ensure they can be run at no cost to the schools – (outside of transport). They will be run as drop-in sessions so no formal bookings are required.
Access to Sport will provide taster sessions of ball sports to be decided by the students, with qualified all sports coaches. This could include inclusive tennis.
Pedal Power is looking forward to expanding this offer to more boroughs in the future.
