Walk to School

We are signed up to the Year Round Walk to School Challenge. This is to encourage healthy lifestyles, alert and ready to learn children arriving at school and to help our environment by reducing pollution. 

We recognise that walking to school is not easy with our rural location and bus routes. Therefore, anyone who parks in the village hall and walks up to school (park and stride) will be included as walking to school. This will be the same for children who walk to their bus stop. The expectation is about a 10-minute walk. If children live too close to the bus stop to allow this, they have been advised that taking a short walk when they arrive at school or during break time will also count as ‘walking to school.’
