What activities do we offer to schools?
The Dirt Factory team has lots of exciting biking equipment which can be used both indoor and outdoor all year around. Our team are all experienced bikers and coaches who want to get the best out of all pupils no matter what their biking experience or ability. Ultimately the aim is to have ‘fun’ whilst learning.
We have a pump track which is like a huge jigsaw puzzle. It can be built in a variety of different ways to suit your pupil’s abilities. Here pupils can develop and challenge their own biking skills. The pupils could even design the layout and even help in building it up before trying it out for themselves.
We have a confidence inducing airbag where pupils from the age of 10+ can take a ‘leap of faith’. Our BMX riding member of staff can also provide a ‘bike trick’ demonstration to inspire your pupils further.
We can offer a one off or a block of sessions. We can even set up our equipment for an entire half term! After school and holiday clubs can also be provided. We can also offer team building sessions for your teaching staff!
We tailor all our sessions for your needs, so if you’re wondering how we could work with your school. Get in touch!
What ages and stages do we work with?
From the Early Years Foundation Stage right through school and into the staffroom the Dirt Factory team can provide a biking activity for everyone.
Our sessions are suitable from the age of 3 up to 93 and beyond.
We work with nursery and primary schools, secondary schools, special schools, colleges, universities and alternative education provisions. All our staff are experienced in working with a wide range of pupils.
We have a range of differentiated biker sessions for the EYFS, KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4 all linked to the EYFSP and the National Curriculum programmes of study.
What do schools need to provide?
Schools need to provide the space to set up our equipment. A playground or school hall would be ideal.
We encourage pupils to bring their own bikes and helmets to allow them to grow in confidence on the one they use the most and will continue to use.
The Dirt Factory team will provide a detailed session plan beforehand.
How much will it cost?
It all depends on what you would like and for how long. We know that school budgets are tight and therefore we try and keep our costs affordable for you.
