We actively encourage our pupils and staff to walk, scoot or cycle to school as they:
- keep us fit and healthy
- help our pupils develop road safety skills which will keep them safe as they travel further afield and more independently
- help keep our local air clean, and our streets free from congestion
- are life skills that everyone should be able to benefit from
We understand that sometimes there is no alternative to driving to school. Where a car must be used we ask parents to drive only part of the way, drop their child off away from the school so that some of the journey can be walked or scooted or park away from school and escort their child the rest of the way. Ideally a 5-10 minutes' walk.
If you do have to drive your child and stop in the near vicinity please do so legally, safely and with respect for our school community, neighbours and local residents.
