I think this problem is not with the issue of SENs it with the issue of 'Inclusion' .
I have had a number of schools that think children should be included in road training at level 2 when they are not judged by an instructor as safe to progress. This comes from the mistaken impression that schools can somehow browbeat an instructor using the: 'We have a fully inclusive school policy in force at or school' argument. It is also borne out of grey areas within Bikeability that indicate that 'Taking Part' is the main criteria in issuing a certificate as it states this on the certificate. We need to think about this and let head teachers know within our procedures that some children will not progress to road training due to ability.
