As part of our Safer Routes to School and Eco Agenda, we will be running a Walking Bus next week (w/b 4th May) and during the short week beginning 25th May. Since it is powered only by good old fashioned leg work, our Walking Bus promotes healthy exercise, reduces dangerous traffic around our school gates and reduces traffic pollution, thereby improving the health and safety of all our pupils.
We would love as many pupils as possible to take part, joining us on the short walk from the Broom shops to the school. Whether pupils are able to walk with us everyday, for part of the week or even just for one day, everyone is welcome!
Each child will be given a reflective tabard to wear on the walk. Please do not send pupils with bicycles or scooters as this can cause complications and can slow down the Walking Bus!
As our Walking Bus is informal, we must stress that it is the responsibility of parents to decide if their child should join the walking bus. The safety of any pupil whilst walking with the bus remains the responsibility of their parents or carers until they arrive on the school premises. Therefore any child whose behaviour is a cause for concern during the walk may not be allowed to continue to participate.
We will meet at the back of the Broom Shops (on the pavement at the back of the dental surgery) at 8.40am every day throughout the school week.
