Chellow Heights SEN School

Chellow Heights SEN School

Chellow Heights SEN School offer inclusive cycling sessions for all pupils and they have a good range of adapted bikes to meet most needs. For more information on adapted bikes, please see CTCs guide to adapted cycles.

About the centre 

Chellow Heights SEN school is a Cycling UK affiliated centre. CTC were instrumental in helping the school at the start as they provided bike maintenance training for staff which meant many broken bikes could be fixed.  

Many children at the school are in wheelchairs and CTC have been able to assist with the purchase of a Velo-plus bike, which is a front loading wheelchair carrier. 

The SEN school caters for pupils with a diverse range of special educational needs, for learners aged 2 - 11 years. They are based at two sites, the main one is in the west of Bradford at Heaton Primary, the Acorn Centre, and a smaller one is located to the south of Bradford at Low Moor. The school opened in April 2010, and they have over 150 children across the two sites.

 

Activities available at the centre 
  • Riders cycle on an interactive smooth road, within the school playground.
  • Their fleet includes two wheelers, hand trikes, scooters, 3 wheeler trikes, balance bikes, transferable wheelchair bikes and side by side cycles.
  • Cycle sessions are scheduled into every classroom timetable, even over lunchtimes.
  • The bikes are available during holiday times too, for parents to bring their children and enjoy the facilities.
