Aspire to Achieve

Active & Safe Travel

Active Travel to School


Most of our children live very near to the school and because of this they are walking to and from school.


Some children are cycling or using their scooter to travel to and from school. We have a place for you to keep secure your bikes during school, and have brand new scooter parking pods too. 


We ask all parents to support us in encouraging children to  walk, cycle or scoot whenever possible.  If it is essential that you use a car please can you park 5 minutes walk away from the school and walk to the school from where your car is parked.


Not using your car has a number of benefits for the whole school community:


  • It keeps the roads immediately outside school much safer for our children
  • It minimises congestion 
  • It supports our Healthy Schools status
  • It promotes better relationships with our neighbours
  • It keeps local pollution to a minimum


There may be days when you have to use a car to come to school.  In those cases please do not park in front of our neighbours garages, on the zigzag road markings or within 10 metres of a junction.

TfL Gold Award and School of the Region

We are extremely proud to have been awarded both the TfL Gold STARs Award and School of the Region Award.


Two of our pupil councillors attended the award ceremony at City Hall in November 2017. At the ceremony, we were able to meet other schools who had gone above and beyond in the fundraising and raising awareness of active travel, it was great to share ideas with many of them and see all the great projects they had worked on. 


We were so shocked and excited to win such a special award!
