Sustrans Active School Travel Programme

We are continuing with our "Active School Travel Programme" this year. Our aim is to achieve our bronze award before Christmas and to work on our silver award challenges. Last year Ronan ran fantastic competitions and training in our school, I'm sure there are lots more activities for this year!

Each Friday for Golden Time a Year group will be allowed to bring their bikes or scooters to school to use on the playground. We hope this will encourage more of you to travel to choose an active way of travelling to school and to get more children outside and exercising for longer.

Last year we began the daily mile which we will continue with this year. Every day the whole school will go outside and run for a mile- staff are included in this! You can visit their website for more details on this fantastic idea!

I look forward to updating you more on this exciting programme within our school, for now, why not take a look at the Sustrans website where you can read about the results and testimonies from current and previous participating schools.

All bikes have now been checked- well done Ronan! Each bike has a checklist attached outlining any further adjustments which are needed to the bikes. The Year 6 children were shown how to carry out the checks on their own bikes. We look forward to seeing more cyclists travelling to school in the future!
