Walking to School


As part of our aim to be a ‘healthy school’ we encourage all our children to walk to school if possible.  There are many reasons why we encourage our children to walk to school.

  • Walking provides good exercise
  • If families walk together it can be a sociable start to the day
  • It gives children the opportunity to understand the importance of road safety.
  • Parking around the school is limited
  • Traffic Congestion caused by parents trying to park near the school has potential to cause accidents.
  • It helps reduce the impact of car pollution on the environment.

If it is not possible to walk, to avoid congestion around the school, we encourage parents/carers to park in the surrounding area. There is a lane from Vereland Road that leads through to the main road opposite the school.
