We will be continuing to take part in the WOW Travel Tracker this year. We hope to give out lots of badges to pupils from Reception-Year 6. In order to earn a badge pupils will need to to travel actively 3 times a week, every week.
We will also be continuing to work with SUSTRANS and we will be taking part in exciting events like The Big Pedal and Bling Your Ride Competitions.
Thank you for your support with our Active Travel initiative.
We can't wait to get back to school! When we are back we will be launching the the WOW Travel Tracker! Please follow this link to watch a video explaining the initiative!
We took part in the Christmas Bling competition. Our scooters and bikes were amazing and very festive! We also designed posters about keeping safe when travelling in the colder months - take a look at the winners below!
Our Big Shift Medal Winners!
Our Active Journeys Crew chose children who actively travel to school to receive a medal. They were looking carefully each week of the Big Shift! Well done to everyone who took part, we really appreciate your support!
What an amazing effort from everyone in the Big Pedal! Our results were amazing! Bendigedig!
Please have a look at our results below.
The Big Pedal starts on Monday 25th March! Please encourage your family to walk, scoot or cycle to school every day for 2 weeks!
This year, 2017-2018, we are working towards achieving our Bronze School Mark Accreditation Award.
Over the next few years we will be working to promote walking, scooting and cycling to school in the following ways:
By working with the local training providers to help young people to travel safely and feel more confident making journeys by foot, scooter and bicycle.
By organising promotional activities and events to encourage young people to travel actively to school.
By involving parents so that they can help support the school and young people with active travel events and activities.
The main aim of our Active Journeys Programme is to see more of our pupils choosing an active and healthy journey to school.
Increasing the number of children who regularly walk, cycle or scoot to school has numerous benefits including:
increased physical activity levels resulting in improved health and wellbeing
reduced congestion around schools
improved relations with the local community
improved academic performance and attendance rates
increased road safety awareness
increased confidence, self-esteem and independence for young people.
