Staying Fit and Healthy
There has never been a better time for us all to seek healthier and more sustainable ways to travel. We would like to take the opportunity to remind you of our school’s active travel map. This was created a few years ago BY OUR CHILDREN to encourage as many of us as possible to walk, cycle or scoot to school.


We realise that many of us do not live within walking distance of the school therefore our active travel map enables you to see our ten minute walk zone which we hope will enable you to ‘park and stride’ to school.

Parents and carers are also still welcome to use the Waitrose car park to reduce congestion around the school. 


Walk/ Cycle/ Scoot to School 

Cycling, scooting and walking is a fantastic way to get to school and it keeps you fit and healthy. It also helps to reduce air pollution and congestion around the school gates.


  • Government guidelines recommend young people aged 5 to 18 get at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
  • Spending quality time with each other.
  • Boost your mental health and wellbeing; physical activity increases mental alertness and helps reduce stress and anxiety.
  • Fewer cars means cleaner air & less traffic, safer for children arriving at school.
  • Increase road safety awareness early and boost independence.
  • Save some pennies; less fuel being used twice daily.
  • Arrive feeling ready to start the day feeling more relaxed and alert.


Big Pedal

Each year the school takes part in Sustrans Big Pedal. It's the UK’s largest inter-school cycling, walking, wheeling and scooting challenge. Big Pedal has now been running for 11 years and it has inspired hundreds of thousands of pupils, staff and parents to take active journeys to school.


On each day of the challenge classes will compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents cycling, walking, scooting or using a wheelchair to school.


Big Pedal inspires pupils, staff and parents to be amazing and take active journeys to school.
