In an effort to ease congestion around the school, improve pupil’s fitness and improve punctuality we are considering setting up a ‘Walking Bus’.
Children will walk to school using an agreed route under the supervision of at least two members of school staff – a ‘driver’ and a ‘conductor’. We will collect children from their homes at a designated time and walk a set route to school together. The bus will operate for three days every week, bringing children into school.
Routes will be established along those roads most used by our pupils, depending on the level of interest shown by parents and willingness of adults to volunteer as support for the ‘drivers’ and ‘conductors’.
This scheme can help improve your child’s safety awareness and reduce the number of school runs you make.
We are trying to find out whether or not this suggestion has your support so please complete the questionnaire below and return it to school by Monday 29th October 2018.
